We love the sun but it doesn't always shine brightly. We love it that the FlameStower can charge Solio products at night and in inclement weather while you cook! This thermo charger, which uses waste heat from fire, is a wonderful companion to our solar products.
Why it's a favorite:
This charger is a compact, collapsible device that charges your electronics with heat from fire. Simply unfold the FlameStower, fill the red reservoir with cold water, and place the tongue into your fire (camp stove, home stove, wood fire... just fire). The FlameStower uses the temperature difference between the water in the red cup and the tongue below to generate at .5 Amp USB output.
Uses waste heat: Cooking creates waste heat. This device puts the waste to good use.
Compact: Just 2" wide, 8" long, and 1" tall its very easy to pack along. Oh yes! It weighs only 10 ounces (290 grams).
Companion to Solio: Use your Solio solar battery at night! The Solio can be charged by USB so that means it can be charged from FlameStower. The 2000 mAh battery of the Bolt for example will charge in about 3 hours.
Any Fire: FlameStower, unlike other thermo electric devices, requires no special kind of wire. It works with nearly any camp stove, wood stove, home stove, campfire or grill.
