Device Compatibility list for v3

Verison 3 mintyboosts!

This compatibility list is for the version 3.0 of the mintyboost, which uses the LT1302 charger chip and has 4 resistors for improved iPhone compatibility. Basically, If you got it after August 2010, it's probably v3 - but check the kit packaging to be sure!

The following tables contain the current known tested devices and results. We are pretty sure that every device that worked with the MintyBoost v2 will work with the v3 in addition to all the Apple devices. However, we don't own every gadget in the world (that would be neat but expensive!) so if you find a device that works, please let us know by contacting us, posting in the forums or sending Feedback. Thank you!!!
