The tPOD1 (thermoelectric power on demand) is a handy device that turns your tea candles into a source of electricity. Developed by Tellurex, it uses the heat to generate power, with a single candle able to power a bright LED bulb lamp for up to four hours. The device weighs less that 12 ounces and is about the size of a small soup can. It would be useful for outdoor enthusiasts and could be kept in the home in case of power outages.

Tea Candle-Powered Device Converts Heat Into Electricity

The tPOD1 is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, and with a pledge of $79 you can get one tPOD1 power generator, an LED light with USB connection, 16 tea candles for your initial fuel, and a carrying case. A number of accessories are also being developed for the tPOD1, including a small battery regulator and charging system that maximizes the power that can be stored for charging USB-powered devices such as a smartphone or MP3 player.
