PowerPot X Will Turn Fire and Water Into 10 Watts to Charge Your Devices - Kickstarter

| Cool Stuff Found

PowerPractical has launched the PowerPot X, a 10 watt version of the company's portable charging technology, on Kickstarter. PowerPot X is designed to sit on a fire—be it a camp fire or a gas-powered flame—and turn that heat energy into electricity you can use to charge your mobile devices, and it does it without any moving parts. Cool, right? For outdoorsy folks or anyone prepping for bad weather, the PowerPot line is one of several alternative-energy solutions coming to market to address portable charging, and I like this one because it harnesses energy that is usually otherwise wasted. There are a ton of funding options available, and the company is already very close to its goals, but funding will still get you a discount on a unit when it ships. The video below contains too much back-story, but at the two minute mark, they get to the new model they're working on.

This is the post-apocalyptic gadget I’ve been waiting for!  Granted the wireless networks will probably all be down but I’ll always have power to play my phone’s music and video library.

And Angry Birds.

And Doodle Jump. That seems great way to while away the off hours after the apocalypse.

Or solar collector…?
I’ve built solar collectors for less than $10 that would boil a pot of water.
Hmmm….
