Dad: What kind of phone charger do you have? I'm guessing mini or micro USB.|
Dad: I want to make you a portable phone charger, so you can have it with you on the go.
(At this point I almost tell him I'm a grown up and I know how often to charge my phone, plus any phone charger is easy enough to put in a backpack...but decided to humor him).
Me: It's some kind of USB, I don't know the difference.
Dad: Is your phone plug a little less than 1/4" wide and rounded down on 2 corners? Or approx the same size, but indented in side on each side?
Me: I think the first one.
Dad: I'm trying to teach myself electronics, it's just a simple but useful device. Next project is a voice changer like we had so much fun with in Ocean City.
Dad: Lots of possibilities, like flashing LEDs or bright luminescent wire for a bike or costumes. Tron-like. And of course maximum modification for a flashlight.
