MintyBoost USB Charger Kit v2.0
If you enjoy any types of candy that come in little tins, then you probably toss away a lot of the tins. Sure, you can use one or two for storage, but sometimes it’s hard to find a use for them. Thankfully MakerShed has released a kit to allow for you to change your old tins into a USB charger for your various USB gadgets. At least it’ll make for one less tin sitting in a landfill.
The kit will help keep your iPod, camera, cellphone and any other USB gadgets charged. The charger uses 2 AA batteries and will allow for your iPod to run for hours, which is apparently 2.5 times more than you would get from a 9V USB charger. In order to make yourself a USB charger you will have to do some soldering, but that’s the most difficult part that you’ll come across. You can purchase the kit for $19.99.
