Charge your mobile in the woods

A new USB-enabled saucepan, which went on the market in Japan earlier in the week, would allow users to charge mobile phones without a wired power outlet. 

The pot, which Crunch Gear reported is safe for use over an open flame, uses the excess energy produced by the flames to charge cell batteries. 

"[The pot's maker] says that an iPhone, for example, takes 3-5 hours to be charged completely. They pitch the pot by saying that it could be used in the case of an emergency or in areas with no power."

The saucepan was called the Hatsuden-Nabe and was manufactured by the TES NewEnergyCorporation
