For this trip I will be using some new gear that I would like to introduce.
By Jörgen Johansson
Pot and cord weigh 420 grams (I will not be using the 105 gram lid/cup but will use a piece of foil as lid.
The first test in my kitchen indicates that the Power Pot does not differ much from solar chargers. That is, they charge, but boy, does it take time...
My conclusion so far is that it is probably not feasible to use fuel that you carry, at least not for longer trips (which is when I feel the need for this way of re-charging). But if you can have the pot over a fire/slow coals for a whole evening you will at probably have something that can bring your smartphone, camera or GPS back from the brink.
I will add some extra pouches on the outside, since I prefer to carry my tent and rain gear there. More on that later. The size Large that fits my torso weighs 1050 grams, but it can reputedly carry 25 kilos without suffering internal breakdown and total loss of load transfer capability.
