Box Case for MangOHRed



I am searching for a box case for MangOH Red.
Is any available?


AE_1, have you received any answer to your question or found any solution for an enclosure for the mangOH red?
We looked at the 3D files provided on the website but looks like they would need some rework as the upper side is open. Also producing the enclosure with a 3D fab would still be quite expensive per piece.


Hi Gilles,

I haven’t receive any answer. I didn’t find any solution, so I stopped to sreach.
I am sorry, I have no idea…


OK thanks a lot, will keep you informed if I do any progress.


We are thinking of releasing the following enclosure for mangoh red. We worked with our partner (oneoakdesign) to create this one and look forward to feedback before we release it for molding

We might create one or two more different enclosures but will most probably release this in the market first if the feedback is +ve.


Thanks Asyal!

The enclosure looks great. Any indication about availability/planning?

Not an enclosure expert but a few questions:

  • will it be possible to mask the SMA holes if not used? What if an application does not use diversity antenna and/or GPS antenna, or for example uses internal cellular antenna?
  • will it be possible to use internal GPS antenna with such a design (probably yes if no CF3 nor rasperry is used)?
  • will it be possible to use an internal battery?
  • how could the mangOH be connected to 12V (or 24V) as main power? In this case will the enclosure accommodate this use-case?

Anyway great to have such an enclosure available, use-cases and feedback will come with time.

Don’t know whether it can also be released as file for 3D printing, this might also be a good option.



Hi Gilles,

Availability is early April. I will answer your questions below:
a. Yes, SMA holes will remain covered as there is a tab by default there.
b. Yes, you can install an internal GPS antenna
c. Yes, there is space for a 4700mah 18650 Li-Ion battery inside the enclosure.
d. Can you provide more details? Where is this power supply coming from? Please provide more info.
e. We will evaluate whether we release it for 3D printing. Currently, we want to make sure we are able to gather as much feedback before sending it out for molding.



Thanks for your prompt answer Ashish, sounds all good!
What I mean by external power supply is for example industrial or Utility environment where 12V or 24V power is available and wondering how to connect to the mangOH red. (mini) USB would probably not be a viable solution. Would there be any other connector/pins on the mangOH Red which can be used and in this case would those pins be available through the enclosure?



The max input for mangoh red is 5.5V. You can change the battery charger to a pin to compatible BQ24292i and get input upto 17V. Now if you want more you will need to add an additional circuitry in front of the charger.



OK thanks!
Will there be a hole in the enclosure to connect to the battery pins from the outside (for example to connect such an extra circuitry)?


Not as of today. But let me see what we can do to enable that feature


I’ve published an easy to print housing for the mangOH Red for prototype/DIY projects.
It has room to store additional sensors/parts and is provided as open public hardware including source files which you can use to adapt the design to your needs.


rrrRbert rocks!!!


Awesome…great work!!!
