Hi,

I would like to know about compatibility between Expander PI and Raspberry PI 2 B. Is Expander mechanically stackable on PI2B? 

Thanks

Unfortunatly the Expander Pi is slightly too wide to fit directly on to a Raspberry Pi 2 B without the edge of the Expander Pi hitting the ethernet port.  You can just about push the board down along side the ethernet port but it twists on the GPIO pins which could put stress on the connectors so we don't normally recommend it.  

We do sell an adapter which allows you to stack the older style expansion boards like the Expander Pi onto the Raspberry Pi 2.
