This is the Adafruit Minty Boost USB Charger Kit. This project includes all the electronic parts necessary to build your own MintyBoost - a small & simple but very powerful USB charger for your iPod or other mp3 player, camera, cell phone, and any other gadget you can plug into a USB port to charge. The charger circuitry and 2 AA batteries fit into an small space such as an Altoids gum or mint tin, and will run your iPod for hours, 2.5x more than you'd get from a 9V USB charger. You can use rechargeable batteries too.
New In Version 3: Provides 500mA @ 5V, tested and designed to work with all the latest iGadgets, improved efficiency for high-drain devices, works much better with LiPoly battery mods.
