USB Power Pot Uses Excess Heat to Charge Your Gadgets

Most stoves produce heat that far exceeds the temperature necessary to boil water, but TES NewEnergy has found a way to convert that excess energy into power, which can subsequently be used to charge your USB gadgets. Released yesterday in Japan, the Hitochaja HC-5 USB power pot can generate up to 400mAh of juice -- enough to charge your iPhone in three to five hours. If you want to expand the service offerings at your local soup kitchen, this double-duty cooking vessel may be the solution you've been looking for.

You gotta hand it to Japan... if there's something that needs to be invented, chances are they'll be the ones to do it. This could be pretty useful for people that like to camp out a lot.

not for the soup kitchen, I'd take that thing camping with me! Try to find a power outlet in the middle of the forrest! No such thing! This would be great! I'd get like an extra day or two out of my battery in the wild with this alone!
