Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
As the deep-freeze of winter thaws out and spring camping season starts heating up, a new product promises to keep outdoorsmen, campers and backpackers up and running. The PowerPot is a new option for backcountry charging of phones, GPS, headlamps, water purifiers, and so on. It uses thermoelectric technology to convert heat into electricity.
The novel idea was launched as a Kickstarter project in April 2012. Since then, it has grown into an outdoor brand shipping to outdoor retailers across the US and internationally. Power Practical has secured a partnership with Sportsman’s Warehouse to stock the PowerPot online and in a growing number of their retail locations.
Caleb Light, Director of Sales at Power Practical, says this is just the beginning. “Since we first launched our Kickstarter campaign the demand for PowerPots has been overwhelming,” said Light, who co-founded the company with three others in 2011, “But now we are finally in a position to deliver to retailers and distributors. Look for the PowerPot at a store near you in 2013!”
To date, the new technology has enjoyed rave reviews. It was reviewed on examiner.com by James Hannibal, to great acclaim: “With the Power Pot V you definitely won’t be sorry. I highly recommend it for any adventurous explorers out there looking to charge up their vital communication, navigation, and illumination gadgets.”
The unit was also reviewed on the backpacking blog gearjunkie.com who gave it a “thumbs-up” in an initial review.
