Flickr Pool Friday – USGI Flashlight Charger


Nathon Pryor made this awesome flashlight charger enclosure for his MintyBoost! Build notes on his site.

This old USGI flashlight gets a new lease on life by using its batteries to charge up my phone. I modified the tail cap to fit an Adafruit MintyBoost circuit in. It still functions as a flashlight, too. It might be useful for camping trips and emergencies, but mostly I did it because it’s cool.
