Description

The PowerPot® gives you the power to charge your electronics anytime, in any situation as long as it has a heat source by flame or another contact like a stove top. The PowerPot will charge cell phones, GPS units, iPods, and lithium ion batteries or will also run speakers, lights, fans, or other low-power USB appliances. How does it work? The PowerPot® is a thermoelectric generator that converts heat into DC electrical power. Simply add water to the pot and place it on a heat source appropriate for boiling water. The PowerPot® will immediately start powering up your mobile electronics. The PowerPot® comes equipped with a standard USB (5V) port, making it compatible with devices you already have. The cable has three feet of heavy-duty, flame-resistant wire. The solid-state voltage regulator provides up to 5W of power to charge your high-tech devices.

Details

  • To use the PowerPot® all you need are a source of cooking heat, water, and a USB device you want to power.
  • The PowerPot comes with a 5 V USB regulator that can charge all USB devices. This includes iPhones, smart phones and typical cell phones as well as a number of USB accessories: GPS units, LED lights and lanterns, portable speakers, battery packs, UV water purifiers, and headlamps. It can also use an optional 12 V regulator (sold separately) that can power standard car-charging accessories. With the 12 V electronics, it can charge SLR camera batteries, flood lighting and more.

  • FAQ

    Will the PowerPot's cables melt?

    No. The PowerPot's regulator cable has a heat-resistant silicone fiberglass protective layer that is self-extinguishing and difficult to damage. Beneath this are Teflon-insulated wires, which will stand up to the heat. The whole package is rated to 600° F (315° C). This means the PowerPot can be carefully operated in an open-pit fire as well as on portable or home stoves.

    What can it Charge?

    The PowerPot comes with a 5 V USB regulator that can charge all USB devices. This includes iPhones, smart phones and typical cell phones as well as a number of USB accessories: GPS units, LED lights and lanterns, portable speakers, battery packs, UV water purifiers, and headlamps. It can also use an optional 12 V regulator that can power standard car-charging accessories. With the 12 V electronics, it can charge SLR camera batteries, flood lighting and more.

    Can I cook food in my PowerPot?

    We recommend that only water be used in the PowerPot to achieve optimal power production. If possible, start with very cold water (or snow or ice). Using water will achieve the longest lifetime for a PowerPot and will produce the most consistent results. 

    How is power from the PowerPot regulated?

    The PowerPot generator uses a solid-state voltage regulator. This regulator is set to provide a constant voltage while supplying up to the maximum current of 1A from the PowerPot V generator. The regulator can safely be used to power a very wide number of low-power mobile devices. 

    How much power does the PowerPot generate?

    Depends on the model.  The PowerPot V has a maximum output of 5W. The PowerPot X has a maximum output of 10W. The temperature of the heat source and the temperature of the water determine the power output. To achieve maximum power, replace boiling water with cool water periodically and use a hot flame. However, engulfing the PowerPot in a large flame will not increase power generation and may cause damage to the PowerPot. 

    How long does it take to start charging?

    One of the PowerPot's best features is its start-up time. In most conditions, power is available within 10 seconds of applying heat to the pot. Maximum power is typically reached within 60 seconds.

    Does the Water Have to be boiling?

    No. The PowerPot taps the transfer of heat to create electricity. As long as heat is flowing from the bottom plate into the body of the pot, electricity will be available.

    Comments about V Thermoelectric Generator Pot:

    The PowerPot is a pretty cool generator! It charged my phone in an hour over my little wood stove. I can see this little guy coming in handy alot! It replaced my backpacking cooking pot and allows me to get a charge while i'm just cooking my mountainhouse Lasagna or making coffee in the morning. I'll even keep it handy if the power ever goes out.
