Just been browsing Maxim’s range of switch-mode controllers. The MAX1724 [datasheet] looks really good. It requires only two external caps and one inductor to operate. Input voltage range: 0.8v to 5.5v. 0.8v!
I should also mention that it’s in SOT23-5…..
/me attempts to find somewhere to buy lots of them…
