The new Kettle Charger from BioLite was inspired by the outdoors while keeping you prepared at home. At 10 Watts, it will charge your phone or tablet as fast as a wall outlet. Unlike a solar charger, this off-the-grid power is ready for action anytime of the day. An evolution of BioLite’s core thermoelectric technology, the KettleCharge uses the water you boil to produce electricity. It works on a wide range of stoves and serves as a perfect personal-scale generator for your everyday devices. Just fill, heat, charge.
What Makes It Unique
The Thermoelectric Generator [TEG], located on the base of the KettleCharge, uses a difference in temperature to produce electricity. This comes from having a hot side and a cold side within the device. The Kettle filled with water serves as the cold side; the flame of your stove in contact with the baseplate is the hot side. As you bring the water to a boil, electricity is produced and sent to the Power Handle, leaving you with potable water and 10W of usable power.
It also comes with a heat-resistant flexible USB extender to keep your cord and electronics out of the heat when charging in real-time.
