I think this is a rather nifty device, as it uses a thermoelectric module and takes the heat from the wood fire and turns it into power.

I know there are some here that go out camping and the like, and am not sure if any of you had seen this. So um, yeah, thought I'd share.
Wow, thanks for that TIFreak Very Happy We go camping with our dad pretty frequently, and this seems like just the thing that we would use.
Thanks for sharing, Daniel; that's quite nifty. As the page says, thermocouples are horribly inefficient for generating power, hence the 1-2 watts (which is still quite impressive, come to think of it; I've only ever generated microwatts experimenting with the same technology). I guess that would be enough to charge up a phone, though.
