BUT! This this thing kicks ass! lol I found for using smartphones like iPhone, switching the phone to airplane more while charging (which takes seconds to set up) makes it charge faster.
I gained 10% battery in 10-15 min! Plenty for a phone call or text message. Or at that rate you could play games while you cook food and never worry about battery depletion!
I am only giving 4 stars though, simply because it comes with multiple adapters for outdated electrical devices.. basically useless. And they claim you can use the additional pot it comes with as a lid but if that pot is in use.. there is no lid to this kit. Also very bulky.. not so much a grab and go item.
Overall, buy it.
It would be perfect for home use in an emergeny with an esbit stove or likewise fuel sorce. Or great for the car camping crowd. If you wanna backpack with it, have a big pack.
spoiler, if you wish to charge faster, don't allow water in pot to boil. I DIDNT SAY REMOVE FROM HEAT. I said don't let it boil.. add cold items to water to maintain temp.. Research thermoelectric generators on Google if you wanna know why this works.
The manufacturer claims that it can provide up to 5 watts of power for a USB device, which is essentially the same amount of power that typically comes out of a smartphone wall plug. In my test the best I could do is about half that.
The PowerPot relies on a thermoelectric generator that produces electricity based on temperature differences between water in the pot and the bottom of the generator that is receiving heat from a stove or campfire. As the water is heated the temperature differential decreases and less electricity is produced. If the water is supercold and the stove is very hot, it's possible that you can get to the full 5 watts, but it won't be at that level for very long.
I did find that with boiling water the device output about 2 watts of consistent power, enough to slowly charge a phone at a rate of about half to a third of what its wall plug can produce.
NOTE: The lamp and the power meter are additional accessories and not included with this listing.
