good 4 a mobile charger!

Lady Ada is really a good reverse engineer because this product works.

Fun Kit, but underwhelming performance

This was a simple kit to assemble and it's a handy thing to have. However, this is NOT a charger, but more of a battery prolonger. If you're looking to top up your phone, this isn't the thing. But if you want your battery to simply die less fast, this is for you. Only other downside is that Altoids doesn't make the mints tin this kit is for anymore, so be sure to buy one (very cheap) when ordering if you want it.
