Minty Boost!

Minty BoostRandom SnapshotOver the past couple of days, I made a Minty Boost from a kit. So now, I can be really cool and charge my USB devices (OK, my iPod) with 2 AA batteries. And the thing fits in a little Altiods chewing gum tin. I'd like to try taking it on an airplane and see if they object. (They shouldn't and probably wouldn't.)

Mostly, my soldering was good on this one. I had one cold joint that sidelobe helped me find. I'm learning how to use my multimeter to test things, and what the readings mean. I really wish I was more inclined to understand and learn electrical theory when I was in college. I'm picking it up now, but there is still a lot that I don't know.

But it's really fun learning.
