We just received a fresh supply of MintyBoost USB Charger kits v2.0 that are all ready to be soldered up taken on a road trip. What’s a MintyBoost? It’s a small and simple USB charger for your iPod or other MP3 player, camera, cellphone, or almost any other gadget you can plug into a USB port to charge. Please note, mint tin is not included.


Building the MintyBoost is really easy, and the kit is a great first time soldering project. You can read more about making the RuntyBoost (pictured above) here. It’s the same MintyBoost electronics inside a larger candy tin. This allows you to store your charging cable too!
