CONVERTER STICK / converter

CONVERTER STICK
CONVERTER STICK

We can see a lot of abandoned lighters. They are thrown away without exhausting all the gas due to their cheap prices. Therefore, the company plans to use the remaining gas in the lighter as electricity to provide sustainable power to various devices.
The extracted gases are converted into electrical energy in less than three minutes. You can directly get the electrical power as soon as you connect a device to a USB port.
The magnetic module structure located at the top can be connected to another CONVERTER STICK. Connected devices can share electricity like a single device and this can provide large capacity power.
