Charging Your Cell Phone With Fire
« on: November 29, 2014, 08:18:56 PM »


That's right, that's a power cord coming out of that pot....

This pot has a built in 5W power generator that works when heat is applied.  It's not a lot, but it will charge your electronics when it is too dark for solar cells.

And, this weekend they are having a 40% off sale:

I ran into a doomer a while back who mentioned these.  Any idea how they work?

Nevermind.  It has a thermoelectric module, so it is working on the reverse principle of a thermoelectric cooler.  Definitely a handy device to have while you are camping to keep your cell phone charged up and diode lights charged, and also in short term power outages.

However, I think I will pass on this prep, since I have my generator and solar cells and hand crank lights which can also charge your cell phone.  5W though is just too little juice for anything except small electronics that have very low power consumption.
