How it works
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 – and you can do a lot with 10W
