Quick note from the forums! MintyBoost and DROID works… malsbury writes –

I just wanted to add that I just finished a stock build of Mintyboost v2.0 and it works with my Motorola Droid (Milestone) as well.

  1. ** awesome news!

  2. “@hahaha” we edited a portion of your comment. many people have the motorola droid are looking for great charging solutions like the mintyboost. offensive comments, insults or personal attacks will be removed immediately.

  3. Got a new Droid A855 recently and this is great news. The thing chews battery life like a Labrador in a shoe factory. Then again maybe I’m playing with it too much. 😉

  4. Did some testing. Here’s what I find:

    1. Sometimes when I insert the Droid’s micro-USB the Droid doesn’t recognize the MintyBoost as a “valid” charger. Re-inserting seems to help. It may be that the Droid is drawing a LOT of current and the in-rush is dragging MintyBoost down.

    2. I also tested on an old Blackberry 8830.

    Output voltage (No load) = 5.02 VDC
    Output voltage (Droid) = 4.31 VDC
    Output voltage (RIM 8830) = 4.62 VDC

    3. I found that the LT1302 is getting a bit warm; it’s so warm that I can’t comfortably hold my finger on the case for longer than 2 seconds.

    4. The AA batteries are also getting a bit warm.

    Question: What is the max current the MintyBoost v2 is designed to comfortably source?

    …dtw
