It looks like we ran into another must have item in the FlameStower. For those of us that love backpacking and camping, this handy device will provide peace of mind knowing we can always recharge our smartphones. Using fire as the power source, FlameStower converts fire into electricity so you can charge your device. According to their FAQ, charging takes roughly the same amount of time as it would to charge from your computers USB connection. That’s impressive. The instructions are simple, just make sure to keep the hot end away from your devices and cables. Let it cool off when you are done and be on your merry way.
Simple. Effective. Genius.
For outdoor photographers, this means never running out of batteries during overnight photo shoots. $80 gets you the FlameStower and it seems their Kickstarter has already successfully been funded. When we get our hands on one, we will put it to the test and let you know how it does. Go grab one.
