The PowerPot makes it easy to keep all of your devices charged by converting heat into electricity. This could mean the heat from your portable stove, a wood stove, or even a campfire. Just place the device on top of the heat source, and connect the USB cable that it comes with to your phone or whatever else you might need to charge. The cable itself is flame resistant and weatherproof so you don't have to worry about it getting hot, and since the device sits directly on top of a fire, this is definitely a necessity. The PowerPot makes it easier to make sure you can get a charge in case of an emergency, and could prove to be a useful device for backpackers and campers. It wouldn't be a cooking gadget of course unless you could actually cook with it though, and the PowerPot opens on the top to let you heat up soup, coffee, or whatever else you like while you charge your phone. The PowerPot can be purchased for $149.
