iPod Altoids USB Battery Charger

For the 98% of people without a 3rd generation iPod, I have created a smaller USB charger for just about every other type of iPod. This time without a tutorial, I wired a 9v battery clip to an on/off switch, then to a 5v regulator, to a nice blue 5v LED, to a USB port, all in series. Everything can be bought at RadioShack for under five dollars, except for the USB connector, which I bought from digikey.com. A breadboard helps, but is not necessary.
