I don't think so, there is a Linear Tech chip in there which is too specialised for them.

@asker: And if you're using a boost converter, it is designed to take 3 volts and turn it into 5 volts...by drawing more current on the input.

If you're using anything solar, you tend to have more than 5 volts input and very low current to begin with, so a buck converter that increases current capacity will be a good idea.

AND if its a solar system, as it were, I'd use an MPPT chip anyway.....
