Camping Charging Pot

Not available for purchase.

PRODUCT STORY
Going off the grid is great and all, but our 21st century way of life does have its luxuries. Mix roughin' it and convenience of GPS with this innovative charging pot. As simple as boiling water, just place the pot over the campfire, and as the water begins to heat, it uses the energy produced to generate up to 5-watts of power and charge your USB-connected electronics.

Made of hard-anodized aluminum, this versatile design should only be used with water, soup, or liquids that can be brought to a boil. However, an included lid doubles as a frying pan for solid foods. Care for a side of scrambled eggs with your cell service?
MATERIALS

This creative way to charge your gadgets--even in the middle of the wilderness--is pretty ingenious. Would you take one on your next camping trip?

But how do you keep your electronics from falling into the fire? Does the pot retain the energy produced by the boiling so it can be removed from the fire and electronics can be connected?

I don't go camping, so I would not purchase this.

5 watts of power? not likely to provide enough - better to invest in a portable charger.

Like the idea but what prevents the cord from burning in the fire??

Interesting item but I question the length of the cord, the fire resistance of the cord and how long would it take to charge your device to a useful level on 5-watts of power. These questions could be due to ignorance so maybe the description could be improved.

I would be concerned about having electronics near heat and water. Plus, you would be required to start a fire and boil water for it to work, but what if there is no need for boiled water at that time, or no place to build a fire. In addition, you can find a small, cheap external charger that can be used anywhere at anytime.
