Boil up some soup, help deliver a baby and recharge your phone with the PowerPot
The PowerPot will allow you to recharge any device with a USB port, simply by boiling water. The product generates electricity by taking advantage of the difference in temperature between the fire that heats the pot, and the water inside the pot. The larger the difference, the more electricity is generated. It is the same thermo-electric process that powers the BioLite Camp Stove that we told you about back in 2012. A 20 minute charge using the PowerPot will give you two hours of battery life. A cable connects the PowerPot to your phone.
The PowerPot would seem to be a great charging solution for emerging markets, something that billionaire Mark Cuban pointed out after the product was pitched to the Venture Capital roundtable. The price of the pot might deter some from making the purchase though, since it does carry a pretty hefty price tag of $149 for what is essentially a phone recharger that boils water.
Still, if you're a tree-hugging environmentalist who fears for the future of the planet, or you have a legitimate need for an alternate method to charge your phone, you might find the PowerPot to be of some real use to you, regardless of the cost.
