Outstanding! No go-bag is complete without one.
Will the mega kit be available before the next disaster?
Now all we need is a lipo charger built in. Maybe we can do a mega-minty board that has a 5V socket.
Tell me if i’m wrong, but a couple of AA cells will provide around 3500mAh i think.
Geekiness left apart, i’d prefer to take a "standard" minty boost with easily found 2xAA as replacement rather than this one with an expensive LiPo (which needs to be charged!)
Have a solar/USB chargeable version of this ready to go. Waiting on a spiffy acrylic enclosure from ponoko. That lipo does take awhile to fully charge, but it sure can keep a USB chargeable gadget going for a long time! Will update forum thread with pics when assembled.
I built a version of this that uses the usb/dc li-poly charger and is housed is a pepper can.
It works awesome in that the spoon cover can fit both the usb A of the minty boost and dc/usb ports of the charger, covering them when not in use.
I call it “Spicy Boost” with the tagline-”Put some pep back in your device!”
