Introducing the Altoids Tin - the perfect solution for housing your small electronics projects!

Use the tin as a battery holder to protect and store small batteries like coin cells or AAAs. The tin can also be used as an enclosure for various electronics projects like a small audio amplifier or microcontroller board. Not only can it hold projects, but it can also serve as a holder to keep small electronic components organized and easily accessible. Use it as a tool organizer to keep small items like pliers and wire cutters organized while you work.

The Altoids Tin also has a variety of unique uses. Turn it into an emergency kit filled with survival items like matches and a small flashlight. You can even create a portable USB charger or a game console that runs classic games.

With the Altoids Tin, the possibilities are endless. Create your own unique projects and protect them in style with this tin!
