The powerpot: this is a really good price for an innovative piece of kit. It’s half off of REI’s clearance price for the PowerPot 5.
Tempted by the powerpot, but does it work? Maybe there’s a reason woot got a bunch of new units to unload at a deal?
I have a solar panel that seems to work even in cloud, so this would probably be overkill.
Neat idea though. Maybe if it were at a better price.
Generating electricity from heat is a neat idea. NASA uses an RTG to power some satellites, but that’s with Plutonium-238. Rumor has it there’s a few of these in the Atlantic ocean.
Another idea is to pedal out a few watts with a K-tor Power Box.
The camper soap/towel kit is a couple bucks cheaper at REI http://www.rei.com/product/888579/outdoor-rx-camper-cleaning-kit-2015-overstock

“I have a solar panel that seems to work even in cloud, so this would probably be overkill.”
Please post what kind of solar panel you have . I evidently got one that was built for use on Venus – slightest hint of a cloud in Earth’s atmosphere keeps it from working!
