Pocket Sized battery powered charger for Apple Watch.

it has a 2000mAh battery which should provide a good number of recharges of the watch. It’s self can be recharged using a micro USB cable.

The circuit board is from Adafruit, 500c. I cut the Apple charge cable and directly soldered it to the 500c. Red is +5v, white and green need to be shorted together, and shield is ground!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
