The PowerPot is a Kickstarter project that has already earned funding with 8 days to spare. What is it? It’s a portable thermo electric generator. Take it camping, fill it with some water or food, place it on your campfire and you’ve got instant power. There are two versions: the PowerPot V and the PowerPot X, which respectively produce 5 and 10 watts of usable electricity. An attached USB cable (yes, it’s fire resistant) connects to your device. They provide enough power to charge 2-3 smaller devices like your mobile phone, GPS, MP3 player or LED light. A larger version is in the works that will be able to charge a tablet. They can even work with a candle instead of a campfire, so you could use them in the event of a power outage. If you pledge $125, you’ll receive the smaller PowerPot V backpack version that can hold 1.5 quarts. $199 gets you the larger PowerPot X which has a 2 quart capacity.
