Using it with other USB charging devices

by fyzxman on Mon Jul 30, 2007 2:40 pm

Does anyone out there know the limits of voltas and amps for various USB charging devices? How many devices out there other than MP3 players could be charged using the MintyMP3? I would like to hear if anyone modified the Minty for varying purposes such as charging other USB devices? I have a Palm Tungsten T3 that could use this? Also has anyone charged a Shuffle or a Nano ipod using the MintyMP3?

If you re looking to charge something, i think you are thinking of the MintiBoost. The MintiBoost should be able to charge anything that can charge from USB, such as USB compatible cell phones, PDAs, and the like. Your Palm should charge fine. Be aware, there have been reports of BlackBerrys drawing massive amounts of power, and compatibility issues with Apple iPhones (although, i think a fix is in the works).

The MintiMP3 is an MP3 player, the MintiBoost is a battery powered USB charging device.

Edit... i just looke,d your T3 is on the Known to work list
