Collin Smith shared his MintyBoost Solar Charger Project, housed in his “up cycled” antique cigarette box, on the Adafruit Forums!

Just to share my project using the MintyBoost V3 with a solar panel. I use it to charge my iPhone 5 daily and works really well. No tweaks to the MintyBoost were required, just some additional battery power.

Check out his project documentation on his site!
