Stower has designed a Candle Charger that uses a candle holder connected to a USB outlet to provide a charge to smartphones. The Candle Charger looks like a miniature campfire cooker. The candle sits on the bottom while a small bowl filled with water sits on the top.

When the candle is lit, it will heat the water, which is connected to a USB outlet. Once the charge is strong enough it will actually become a phone charger and bring power to cellphones. This handy device is an old-school way to stay connected with modern technology.

It's the perfect household tool to have in case of a power outage or a larger environmental emergency. A campaign has been launched on Kickstarter so that Stower can bring this unique charger to consumers.
