Hammacher Schlemmer has introduced The Thermodynamic Cell Phone Charger, an emergency charger that restores the drained batteries of electronic devices by boiling water.
Appearing as an unassuming 1.4-liter pot, The Thermodynamic Cell Phone Charger, converts heat into electricity using the laws of thermoelectricity when boiling water over a wood fire, camp stove or the included propane-powered heating element.
“The Thermodynamic Cell Phone Charger is a classic Hammacher product that solves a problem—in this case, two,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager Fred Berns. “It recharges your handheld USB smartphones, carmeras, headlamps, and GPS receivers while reinvigorating you with a hot cup of hot chocolate!”
The Thermodynamic Cell Phone Charger recharged a dead cell phone to 100 percent battery power after four hours of heating in tests conducted by The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute.
