DIY AC-USB Charger

This little hack is so simple I’m surprised I haven’t seen someone do it before. I needed this for myself when I couldn’t get the real deal for a friend’s iPod Mini, then decided they cost too much anyway. The “real deal” has an iPod docking plug on one end of it and an AC plug-pack on the other. This is nice for plugging into an iPod, but useless for any other device.

Use two standard AA batteries and some electronics to power your device through an USB cable. The electonics are needed to convert the 3 Volts of input delivered by your batteries to the 5 Volts wanted by the USB specs.[more]
