There’s pretty much nothing more basic than boiling water, but do you ever think about how much untapped power all that boiling creates? The people at BioLite – makers of the BaseCamp Stove – decided to harness that energy by creating a clever little device that can power your electronics anytime you boil water. Whether you are making tea at home, making dinner in a power outage or making clean water while in the great outdoors, the KettleCharge keeps you connected with off-grid power on-the-go in no time flat. It can even handle tablets and, unlike solar power, can be ready day or night.
