This remarkable little device turns heat into electricity. It provides an off-grid USB outlet suitable for charging electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets and power banks, or running LED lights.
Fill with water, place on a woodgas or gas stove, and the unit uses thermo-electric technology to generate 5W of power (5V, 1A). The unit generates electricity using the temperature difference between the hot stove top and the cooler water reservoir. The MiniO reservoir is made of flexible heat-resistant silicone, and collapses down when not in use.
It really is as good as it sounds – and is about as close as you can get to something for (almost) nothing.
Designed and manufactured in South Korea. See specifications tab for further details.
