Campfire Phone Charger Generates Energy Via Red-Hot Flames [Video]

Harness the power of heat to power devices while out in the wilderness.

There seems to be a never-ending stream of creative phone chargers that harness different forces such as kinetic or solar energy, but now there is one that can harness the energy created by exothermic reactions, or in other words, fire. It’s called the FlameStower, and could be the perfect accessory for your next camping trip.

Designed as a collapsable USB charger, the device generates energy by sticking one end in the fire, something that would not be a good idea with any other charger. While it might seem like a less sustainable option than solar, the charger will make use of tasks you already have to carry out while camping – boiling water, or heating up your can of beans for example.

You can get hold of a charger via the Kickstarter Campaign for a pledge of $80. Proving to be a popular idea already, the FlameStower has already surpassed its $15,000 goal with more than 3 weeks to go.

To see the charger making use of a campfire and a cup of water to generate heat, be sure to watch the video:
