Serial console accessible from outside
I have bought adapter like on the picture below. It's based on FT232RL. Just remember it has to have pins to choose voltage (3.3V/5V).
It's very small - 15.6mm x 20mm

Before, I bought some micro adapter with CP2102 chip and despite it was advertised as 3.3V - it was giving 4.5V and was just a failure.

I've taken off some material from the case itself and the bottom metal cover to make it fit. And also from the adapter itself by a margin of maybe 0,5 mm.
For this I used micro dremel.

I plan on doing some blog post about the process with some more pictures.
