From the Forums: Oversized MintyBoost project!

Pasted Image 7 23 14 8 17 PM

Barry914 shared his oversized MintyBoost project in the Adafruit Forums:

I used your PowerBoost 500 Basic to make an oversized portable charger. I mounted it in an Altoids mint box which gave me enough room to use a 3-cell AAA holder and space to store a short USB cable, too. I drilled a hole near the USB connector and glued a piece of acrylic to the side of the USB connector to act as a light pipe so the power LED is visible with the case closed. It’s a lot bigger than the MintyBoost, but for me being able to store the cable inside is a plus.

MintyBoost Kit: The world’s first and only open-source hardware charger: The MintyBoost®! New version! Works with the new iPhone 4 & 5 and more! Please review the Minty Boost project page(s) before purchase and assembly!, some phones require different modifications to the kit to charge properly! Some phones such as the *iPhone 3gs are very sensitive to charging via USB and may not work in all environments or configurations.

Make your own iPod/iPhone/GPS/etc… battery-pack and recharger! 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. (read more)


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
