Title
(EN) Thermoelectric generator battery charger and power supply
Abstract
(EN)

A portable device for supplying with power of at least one portable electrical load or gadget (70), wherein the device (10) is adapted to be manually heated and comprises at least one thermoelectric element (20) having one hot or warm side (21) and one cold side (22), a container (30) attached to the cold side (22) and adapted for holding or keeping a cooling medium or fluid (90) therein, a power converter (60) and a set of cables (65) coming out of the thermoelectric element (20) and connected to the electrical load (70) via the power converter (60).
