Small, Person-Portable Power Solutions

I'd like to start up a Forum Topic where we can discuss power or battery recharge solutions that we may come across and want to bring to attention. If you come across something you like, please share.

The emphasis here is on:

Backup or Recharge Power (solar or otherwise, or as a larger battery device)
Easily Portable (just because you can carry it in a backpack, doesn't mean you should walk ten miles with it)

Charge mobile devices from a campfire

This ingenious portable tool generates electricity from a campfire, or other heat source, to charge mobile devices like cell phones and GPS units.  It includes a radio and lantern.  A few links are provided below, but more are available.  It just went on sale in Japan.  There is no announcement about US sales, but direct contact with the manufacturer might yield results.

How did you come to this opinion?
