The PowerPot Will Keep All Your Android Devices Charged By Camp Fire [Video]. At first blush, this gadget seems really crazy; until you flash back to the last time you went camping in the woods. Boiling water in the power pot generates electricity that can recharge a cell phone, or power another electronic device. Ingenious, and, if you are in the woods without a battery or power, it could be a life saver. The cynics among you are probably saying that the whole purpose of being in the woods is to escape technology. The rest of us are saying that we won't ever be in the woods unless it is an emergency; and, that situation screams PowerPot, PowerPot, I want one now.
