One of the things I really hate is when my iPod runs out of power. There’s nothing much you can do about it, if you haven’t prepared for this. However, if I had the choice of portable rechargers, I’d most definitely go for the MintyBoost.
What is the MintyBoost? It’s a stylish and easy way of recharging any USB device. It can charge iPods, iPhones, cell phones, cameras, anything that needs to be plugged into a USB port. Make has just received these updated kits, which will let you build your own little recharger inside the tin of mints or candies.
MintyBoost kits only cost $20 (USD), but you’ll need to find your own tin mint box in order to house the mechanism. Or you can just choose a different box. The box in the pictures is actually a RuntyBoost, a slightly larger box that can house a charging cable as well.
