“Unlike a solar power generator, our pot can be used regardless of time of day and weather while its small size allows people to easily carry it in a bag in case of evacuation,” said director and co-developer Ryoji Funahashi.

Pan Charger can charge any cellphone, MP3 player or other mobile device over a USB connection in 3-5 hours. The device also has a built-in radio and a lantern – things that you often need when there’s no power.

According to an AFP report, Pan Charger is now available in Japan this month for 24,150 yen ($299), and plans to market it later in developing countries with patchy power grids.
