Charge Your Phone at the Campfire

Charge Your Phone at the Campfire
Inspired by the troubles in Japan, a new Japanese cooking pot is able to harness the heat from a pot of boiling water to charge a smartphone.

The Hatsuden-Nabe thermo-electric cookpot uses strips of thermoelectric ceramics to use the difference in temperature between the bottom of the pot and the boiling water to generate electricity. The pot is able to charge a smartphone in 3 to 5 hours.

The device could be helpful in aiding disaster victims as well as giving citizens of developing countries a way to charge their devices in areas with irregular electricity.

still i remmber the picture in a book, a petroleum - Lamp powering a radio. Maybe in some years we can have thermoelectric power stations based on the same effect.

I guess this is 'charging by convection'. Like we have solar chargers, someone should make 'charging by radiation' so you can point a crystalline screen toward a campfire and get your phone charged.

A great thing which we can use while on far away tours and where there is no electricity at all.

I appreciate this invention at large and support the idea to prmote more such goods with immediate public advantage.

My salute to the inventor.
