Desperate times call for desperate measures. If your phone is running low on power and you’re stuck in an emergency situation where getting help from outside is vital, then you might want to consider stocking up on some Candle Chargers and some candles, of course.
With just some candles and water, the neat contraption designed by Team Flamestower will generate power so you can charge your smartphone and other mobile devices. The Candle Charger can generate 2.5W, which is roughly equivalent to the charge you get from plugging into your laptop port.
The Stower Candle lasts for up to six hours, which should generate enough power to charge two iPhones. You can also use any other candle you find in your home if you’re out.
The Candle Charger is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $99(USD) will get you one.
