Going to answer my own question...

 

YES

 

ETA Prime on YouTube did a video with it and will have an additional review video in the near future. The thermal differences he found using the new Zero2 have been:

  • No Case @ 1.0 Ghz = 67.4c
  • No Case @ 1.3 Ghz Overclocked = 77.8c
     
  • Flirc Case @ 1.0 Ghz = 51.4c
  • Flirc Case @ 1.3 Ghz Overclocked = 68.3c


As you can see, the Flirc Case for the Zero works so well that it cools the Overclocked Zero2 down to non-overclocked thermals at standard clocks without a case. This is outstanding and I am looking forward to having my Zero2 use the Flirc case!

Hey, I just got a pi zero 2 and yes, the case is compatible with a minor drawback: the original thermal pad is a bit too think and the board gets a bit bended. 

I replaced it with a thinner one and the board is fine now. 

Any recommendations for thickness? Would something like this work?
