    Wow. That's pretty cool. I wonder how durable it is.

    I saw these at the Sportsman's Show. They seemed pretty solid, but I want to wait to hear some reviews before I spend the money on one.

    I wonder how practical they are. How long would one have to run to, say, charge a cell phone or a GPS I wonder.

    I can't really see a time when I would use it. The only benefit would be using it on a wood stove and I usually have a quad or other dc source when using a wood stove. I sure don't see burning through a can of iso butane on a sheep hunt to recharge my iPod.

    When I charge my cell phone, for example, it usually takes a couple of hours (depending on how far down the charge is). Keeping a fire burning for a couple of hours to charge something up seems a little impractical. Maybe on wood, but on stove with gas, liquid, or alcohol fuels, no way.
