9V USB Altoid charger kits…


Aaron made a great little kit for anyone who’d like to make their own 9V USB charger that will charge just about any gadget that uses USB, all inside, you guessed it, an Altoids tin. It’s pretty simple to construct one of these, but Aaron put everything together in kit form if you’re not a hardcore Maker yet. For $8.50 it’s a good deal, and it’s always good to support a Maker who’s turning their ideas in to little businesses. Link.

    I got the Kit w/ Switch and a 5 pack of female USB sockets for $20.00 USD (~$25 CAD) including S&H. Looks to be a fun little project.

    I also got the kit with 5 USB sockets. Made the kit in about an hour and love it. Now I never have to worry about my Ipod running out of juice away from home.
