The PowerPot: cooking + electricity

From last year at Kickstarter:

The PowerPot is an innovative new generator that turns heat from cooking directly into electricity with no moving parts. .... With your help, we hope to get Power Pots into the hands of the people who need it most, and onto your own stove or campfire!

Models offered:

  • "The PowerPot V is a typical backpacking type cooking pot, with thermoelectric technology attached to the base that makes it a 5W generator."
  • "The PowerPot X is a typical kitchen-style pot, with integrated thermoelectric technology that makes it a 10W generator."
  • "The PowerPot XV is a 15 Watt PowerPot model currently in development. .... [It] would enable a family in a developing nation to generate enough power for their cellphones and even home lighting!"

  • $99 donate one PowerPot V
