gadget is exactly what you need to keep
connected when you’re out there in the
woods with only your campfire to keep
your warm. When an electricity outlet is
nowhere around and your power-bank
has run out of juice, as long as you can
start a fire, converting that heat energy to
electricity is possible with this
$100 FlameStower Charger.

This isn’t meant to charge just your
phone, it will charge any small device
with a micro-USB port. However, you
should note that it won’t charge your
phone as fast as your regular adaptor but
it still works. At least, it’s better than
absolutely nothing at all.
It’s basically physics: a blads that
protrudes from the device is placed
directly into the flame and this absorbs
thermal energy. This thermal energy is
transferred to a generator kept cool by a
small water reservoir. The difference in
temperature is enough to create enough
electricity to charge any small device.
Again, you should note that this won’t
charge your phone as fast as your charger
and it’s not meant for everyday use. But
when all you have is a burning flame and
your power-bank is dead, this might be a
life saver for campers. You can purchase
Flamestower USB Fore Charger on
Amazon for only $99.
