Description

Protip for life: If someone offers you a mint, take it. Chances are, either you have bad breath or they want to kiss you in the near future. Possibly both. But we're not talking about kissing here. (Ewww, gross.) We're talking about pulling out an Altoids tin and being able to resuscitate a dead phone with it. Is it magical? Yep. As magical as kissing? (Ew, well, maybe.) The Minty Boost Kit contains the parts necessary build your own pocket-sized USB emergency charger. While other people might need emergency breath mints, you prefer a jolt of juice to perk up that iPod or reanimate your Android. Some soldering skills are necessary, but nothing that a beginner can't do (while wearing appropriate safety gear). Once assembled, your Altoids tin will hold the charger circuitry and 2 AA batteries and provide a much needed cup of coffee to your waning device's battery.
