A travel case for Adafruit's MintyBoost hardware charger kit. This design has room for two spare AA batteries.
The MakerBot Design Team made special enclosure designs for three of the most popular kits from Adafruit, the leader in DIY electronics projects. The MintyBoost, Raspberry Pi, and TimeSquare kits are all available for a limited time in the MakerBot Store in NYC.
Assemble the kits and make your own enclosures on your MakerBot.

Print at 10% infill, 1 shell (total), 0.25 mm layer height.
The battery holder that comes with Adafruit's MintyBoost kit won't fit perfectly with this design, but it will mostly work. For a perfect fit, use this one instead:
Place the cover on bottom of case, align the case with the shell and gently press the assembly into the shell until it clicks into place. Drop the battery holder (without batteries) down into the case and seat the MintyBoost, making sure the battery wires are fed through the wire channels. Align the cap and press firmly until it snaps into place (a light tap with a mallet may be needed).
