Use that cup of joe to charge on the go with onE Puck

Looking for a unique way to charge your phone on the go? The Epiphany onE Puck from Epiphany Labs is a Kickstarter project that may provide the ooh factor you desire. The onE Puck is a unique portable charging device that uses either heat or cold to charge your phone. It uses a small Stirling engine to create enough power to charge your phone, or any device that uses a USB charger drawing 1000 mA or less. The onE Puck’s size makes it manageable for a gear bag or purse. Its cool factor makes it worth carrying, just for the looks you would get when using it.

The onE Puck Kickstarter project is seeking funding until April 6th, 2013. Funding starts at $99.00 for one Epiphany onE Puck, tee shirt, and window sticker to $135.00 for a custom-engraved onE Puck and the other listed items. It is slated for delivery in March 2014.

    Wonder if it will work if we stick it in the snow during winter time or let it sit on the hood of a car during summer.

    Great excuse to increase caffeine (or alcohol) level on my blood.

    Scientifically, this gadget can’t charge a battery with 5.3 watt-hours capacity, more than 2 percent!

    @Alex Thanks for your link and the insight. I have gone back to the project page and looked at the recent comments, they seem to address your concern in some of the replies.
