This little pot packs a whole lot of power! For example, the Biolite Camp Stove...is only able to output approximately 2W of power continuously to a 5V-USB port. The PowerPot is able to output 5W continuously.

Dave Arruda gets his kicks paddling around on whatever body of water he can get his kayak into. This is why he is keen to use and review products that help keep him connected in even the most remote locations. Dave's latest review was of the PowerPot V, a cooking pot that generates electricity. The device earned 4.5 out of 5 paddles and as Arruda put it, "packs a whole lot of power!"

Dave answered one of the most common questions people have with a portable generator of this type: How quickly does it charge? Arruda said he charged his HTC Incredible 2 by 25% in just 20 minutes. This rapid-charging pace is due to the relatively high output of the PowerPot, which outputs more than twice the wattage as the BioLite CampStove, which Mr. Arruda reviewed previously.

"This little pot packs a whole lot of power! For example, the Biolite Camp Stove, a similar thermo-electric portable power product, is only able to output approximately 2W of power continuously to a 5V-USB port. The PowerPot is able to output 5W continuously once the water in the pot in boiling," blogged Arruda.

The PowerPot is a thermoelectric generator, which convert heat into electricity. It has the highest output of any thermoelectric generator currently on the market at 5W maximum.
