I guess my reason to stick with the MintyBoost is to have a wider range of choice for the input power (AAs, Li-Po, Solar, etc). I understand that AA's limitations suck, but this maybe the only choice when you're traveling to locations that are underdeveloped and have no access to electricity.
The other thing to note was that the suggestion for v4 was not to use the same LT1302, instead to use another IC that could handle larger amps, such as the one I listed above.
Anyways, I'm not an EE (I wished I was), hence was hoping that someone could come about with a design that we could use (or maybe Adafruit can consider the upgrade anytime now.. ).

I've designed a circuit around the lt1308 - it comes in an 8-SOIC package, which is SMD, but not too tiny. I'm trying to get it and a lipo charger to fit on a single board so I can put that board, 3AA's, and a couple lipos into an altoids tin and have an awesomeboost. I suck at routing, though, so I haven't been able to make it small enough yet.
