Keep an eye out for a butane charger for your portable electronics that just might be the solution for your ministry. If you:
- work outdoors
- live or travel to remote locations
- serve often in a field clinic
- travel frequently
The pocket-sized charger is fueled with butane cartridges and are already approved to be taken on planes, just like cigarette lighters. The recyclable cartridges will cost just a few dollars. The manufacturer says it will be cheaper than buying a spare lithium battery and more convenient than relying on electrical outlets when travelling.
You would be able to charge any device that has a USB cable: smartphones, cameras, digital media players, and more.
The charger should be sold by Brookstone some time later in 2012.
