Typo

Found a copy/paste typo on http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/power.html that might throw some people off.

from this part of the page...

--------------------------
Finally, lets do a 1200mAh lipoly battery with 3.7V nominal voltage

MintyBoost mWh = 3.7V * 1200mAh * 100% = 4440 mWh input
Output mAh @ 5V = 4440mWh / 5 * 80% = 710 mAh output
# of iPhone 3G recharges = 830 mAh / 1200 mAh = 0.60
--------------------------

should be 710 from the line above in order to get to 0.60

Hope this helps! - Rob
