So this morning I woke up and the first thing I realized was I had forgotten to charge my phone and I also have class today. So I grabbed some wire, a battery, a 7805 regulator, and a USB hub from an old computer with a fried motherboard. In the remaining 10 minutes I wired everything together to make a makeshift mintyboost for my iPhone. Here is the result, also for housing I used a cardboard box from sparkfun.
After finishing that I wanted to get rid of the wire mod so I put it all on a board and housed it correctly in the box.
