Happy Manufacturing Monday from Adafruit!
Need to keep your phone charged and don’t have access to an outlet? Build a Minty Boost! The Minty Boost is the world’s first and only open source hardware charger. Using 2 AA batteries it is able to provide 500mA at 5V for hours of extra charge. And it fits conveniently inside an altoids tin!
