Traverse City, Michigan (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
Production of Tellurex Corporation's newest power generator the tPOD1™ is underway with the first off-the-line devices having shipped to its Kickstarter.com supporters on Monday, December 10th.
The tPOD1™ alternative energy power generator produces electricity directly from the heat generated from a common tea candle. The thermoelectric device is about the size of a soup can and weighs approximately 11ounces. According to Rich Harmon, Program Manager, "the tPOD1™ can produce approximately 5.1 volts open circuit." Harmon added, "the tPOD1™ continuously powers on demand a bright LED lamp head for hours at a time and will charge a soon-to-be launched companion battery pack. The tPOD1™ charged battery pack will, in turn, provide a charge to cell phones and smartphones that include the iPhone, Android phone and other smartphones available in the market today." Orders for the tPOD1™ and the tPOD5™ can be placed by visiting the company's tPOD web site.
The first in a planned family of thermoelectric Power On Demand™" power generators, the tPOD1™ is ideal for off-grid campers and backpackers that need a stable, consistent light and power source when adventuring in the great outdoors. The product will also serve as a critical home and business power generator emergency kit when natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy occur.
