a couple reasons, the biggest one being that the minty boost can't 
supply 1A the max is 600mA; as far as I know, there is no magic resistor 
to identify a 500mA charger to the Freerunner, it depends on USB host 
telling it that it can provide 500mA. Second, the ID pin is in the USB 
micro connector, so you would either need to put a micro connector on 
your minty boost (with the correct resistor installed) or use a hacked
