Pan Charger: Power your iPhone with Boiling Water

When we go camping, which we assure you is far and few between, we’re seeking a departure from technology and all the things that distract us from what’s important in life.  What that is has yet to be determined.  However, we’d never leave our iPhone at home for fear of getting lost or not being able to call in an emergency air lift.

That’s why every Bear Grills and those alike need the Pan Charger.  A small element in the base of the pan converts the heat into energy, called thermoelectric energy.  That energy is transferred to the handle and an attached USB plug that subsequently connects to your smartphone.  In our case, and in most, that will be either an Android or iPhone, so output is maxed to 5V.  If it is actually real – yes, we’re a bit skeptical – than it’s a brilliant idea since inevitably a fire will be lit and water or something will be need to be cooked whilst in the wilderness.  We’re not sure how long it would take to charge an iPhone to maximum capacity, but it’s safe to assume this device should be used in a pinch, though a solar charger or backup battery might be a tad more practical.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  2. I LOVE this. Imagine if you got lost camping and all you had to do was boil some water to recharge your phone and call for help. Or if there was a big emergency and all the power was out for a long time!

  3. Man..if you're going to use this on camping, the spirit for camping is gone. I like camping styles wherein you're away from technology. It makes things more in-touch with nature. I don't know about you guys. But that's just me. If you're going to go camping, leave all the techs in your bag.
