Design And Working
It is a 16cm handy pot with a USB port fitted in it. The pot has a thermoelectric device to turn wasted heat into power. It is an established fact that the flames of an open fire can reach up to 900F while boiling water utilizes only around one-fourth of the heat. The excess heat is just wasted. The device utilizes this heat to charge up your gadgets. Just connect your phone or gizmo to the USB port with a cable. It can charge an iPhone completely in 3-5 hours.
