Camping out involves leaving your electronics behind, but at this age we know that will never happen especially with the outdoor-oriented smartphone apps and GPS. So if you are off the grid for several days, where will you charge your gadgets? A Kickstarter project suggests, why not a cooking pot?

Developed by Salt Lake City native David Toledo, the PowerPot would contain thermoelectric material, thus providing an ability to generate electricity as you heat up your stew. There will be two versions, generating 5W and 10W of energy. Both versions will have a high-temperature connector on its regulator cord, as well as three feet of flame-resistant cable leading to the USB port. This feature enables the PowerPot to become usable both on stoves and on open wood fires.

The entry-level PowerPot V can contain up to 1.4 liters of liquid and generates 5W, while the larger PowerPot X has a 1.9-liter capacity and 10W power generation. The pots will have a suggested retail price of $125 and $200 respectively.

This Kickstarter project is about $16,000 short of its $50,000 funding goal as of this posting. Deadline is set at May 4.
