Could it even charge a phone? I mean, less that an amp... Is there enough juice coming out of this thing to trigger the charge function on most modern phones?

I'm hoping to get floors in this weekend (on an unframed, 1" polyiso foam board base). There's just so many options!

I've narrowed my choices down to regular tongue & groove subfloor or standard...

Steel blanks for floor patches?

What are your thoughts on using steel blanks like these to patch the floor holes?

They look thick enough to be durable, thin enough to bend to follow floor rib contours.
