The PowerPot is an amazing new 5W generator that can charge any of your USB devices. It's a waterproof, fire-resistant, and built-to-last portable generator. It is also lightweight at less than a pound!
The PowerPotTM is an innovative power generator that produces electricity using state-of-the-art thermoelectric technology. Use it to charge your USB devices, power lights, or listen to music while heating up a pot of water.
Applications for the PowerPotTM include:
Charging a smart-phone (iPhone, Android, Blackberry) or any cell phone with a USB charger
Charging GPS devices or satellite phones for preparedness in any situation (ideal for the backcountry or remote/rural locations)
Generating power to play music while camping or backpacking
Quiet power generation in any setting, including RVs and boats--It's completely silent!
Because the PowerPotTM is a portable and very reliable power generator, you can pack it up and carry it with you anywhere! Use your PowerPotTManytime; day or night, rain or shine, indoors or out!
Features that make the PowerPotTM stand out as an electrical generator are:
Versatility - Works with various heat sources and fuels
Reliability - Simple design; no moving parts that can fail
Portability - Lightweight (8 oz) and compact (5"x6")
Durability - Built to last
Simplicity - Easy to use, like making a cup of tea
On Demand - Generates power when you want it within seconds
Co-generation - Makes hot water while generating electricity
Silence - Power generation is completely silent
Naturally, everyone wants to know how much electricity the PowerPotTM can supply. The amount of power availible is determined by the temperature difference between the bottom of the pot and the contents inside (see How it Works). You have control over the power output of the system by choosing the intensity of the heat source you use. Using a moderately intense flame and water that is cooler than boiling you can maximize power generation and achieve power output of 5 W. With the water at a simmering boil you can sustain power outputs over 3W. This means you can use it to charge and/or power USB devices such as an MP3 player and set of speakers while your heating up some water. The power regulator included with the Power PotTMgenerator uses the best available technology to efficiently and safely transfer energy to your mobile device.

Bom texto explicativo de alguma modificações possíveis de se fazerem nas bainhas das MORA
Mora Sheath Modifications: "
The greatest disappointment about any Mora knife is the sheath: a flimsy, plastic thing that won’t easily fit on a decent sized belt and does not even hold the knife very securely. As they come, I consider them unusable. But a few simple modifications and additions make them quite acceptable.
The Mora knife sheaths are designed to be mounted either on a button on a pair of coveralls or through a belt. Apparently people wear very small, skinny belts in Sweden. Over here in the United States of Gun Belts, that doesn’t fly. The belt slot on the sheath can be forcefully enlarged by shoving in a piece of wood, such as a ruler, and applying heat to cause the plastic to expand, but I don’t trust that such an act will not over weaken the plastic. I’m not a big fan of carrying a Mora directly on my belt, anyway. Usually, I’ll carry the knife either on a lanyard around my n…
