A new mobile-phone charging gizmo cut loose on the market makes it possible to charge mobile phones and other devices by harnessing the power of fire.
Unlike some of its predecessors, FlameStower works with any open flame–so it can be used while camping or during power outages.
All you need is a charger cable, a small amount of water and, of course, fire. One minute of charge time gives you about 2-4 minutes of talk time.
According to the makers of FlameStower, “the gadget works with the energy of your cooking or camp fires. Once the blade is in a fire, the thermal energy is transferred to the Thermoelectric Generator (TEG). The opposite surface of the TEG is in contact with the water reservoir–hot side gets hot, cold side stays relatively cool, and the temperature difference generates electricity.”
