    lol! that thing is huge, and awesome - alas it may be too big to toss in my messenger bag. Yet, it is really really cool. I think I may get it anyway - it would be pretty nice for a camping trip to say the least. Thanks for that link!

    You don't happen to know something similar, just smaller?

    If you have the know-how and some soldering experience, you can get a MintyBoost kit. They're very nice looking, cheap, and they're designed to be built into those tiny Altoid gum tins (that gum is disgusting, by the way).

    Minty Boost! - USB charger for your gadgets

    Unless you know how to etch circuit boards and are insane enough to WANT to do one when there's a perfectly good pre-etched one available to you for a few more bucks, get the pre-etched version.

    That minty-boost thing is great. I think that would make for a hell of a conversation starter...
