Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 2.5 inch SATA HDD/SSD Storage Expansion Board, X825 USB3.1 for Raspberry Pi 4B

The X825 expansion board provides a complete storage solution for newest Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, it supports up to 4TB 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives (HDD) / solid-state drive (SSD). Only 2.5 inch SATA interface HDD/SDD hard disk is suitable for X825 Board;
It is updated from Raspberry Pi 3B+/3B X820 V3.0 2.5 inch SATA SSD expansion board. (Please refer to X820 if you want use the 2.5 inch SATA SSD on raspberry pi 3b+/3b/2b)
  • Supports upto 4TB 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives (HDD) / solid-state drive (SSD) (Theoretically it can work with 6TB or 8TB as well. But actually we do not test the X825 board with 6tb or 8tb HDD, you can have a try.)
  • Ideal storage solution for Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
  • On-board push button to control power on /off (Press-ON, Hold the button pressed at least 2s -OFF)
  • Powers the Raspberry Pi via Pi’s 40-pin header
  • LED red indicator indicates powered status and blue indicator indicates drive status
  • USB 3.1 Gen1 to SATA 6Gb/s Bridge Controller
  • Quick file transfer with high-speed USB 3.1 connectivity from a PC or a Mac
  • Powers the Raspberry Pi – no additional power supply for RPi 4
[Power Supply Request]
  • Power supply: AC 100 – 240V input 50 / 60Hz, 5V DC 4A output
  • DC Power Plug Size : 5.5*2.5mm
  • Important Note: Please use high quality DC 5V 4A power supply, the best choice is to use the DC 5V 4A power supply that Geekworm provided.
  • If you get low quality power supply to use, it may probably will damage or not recognize your 2.5 inch HDD/SSD.
[Match Metal Case]
A metal case with power control switch and super mute cooling fan, it is a perfect choice for X825 V1.2 SSD/HDD storage board user. It also support to install the X735 Auto Cooling & safe shutdown board over Raspberry Pi 4. We call it honeycomb chassis. Also it updated to support Max 15MM thickness big capacity 2.5 inch SATA HDD/SSD
Note: Because we found that USB 3.0 high-speed transmission will interfere with the Raspberry Pi’s 2.4G wifi signal. So if you find the 2.4G signal is unstable, please try to use WIFI 5G AP. (Please refer to:
We think this is caused by the unreliability of the Raspberry Pi’s wifi design. If the Raspberry Pi Foundation reserves the SMA IPEX antenna interface, everything will become easier. We will also struggle to solve this issue in the future.
