myFC PowerTrekk Charger and In-The-Bag Gear Grab at Summer Outdoor Retailer


Seattle, WA – At this year’s Summer Outdoor Retailer, a myFC PowerTrekk fuel cell charger and assortment of Esbit cookware are up for grabs at booth #40, Industrial Revolution’s home base at the show. At 1:00 pm on days 1, 2, and 3 of the show, Graeme Esarey, the company’s Director of Product Development will demonstrate the myFC PowerTrekk, which charges smart phones, cameras and other USB-compatible devices through a clean-energy process triggered by ordinary water. The charger is ideal for use in off-the-grid locations or in inclement weather because it never needs to be plugged in to recharge. Industrial Revolution will give away a myFC PowerTrekk unit at each demo (entrants must be present to win). The myFC PowerTrekk has an MSRP of $229.99.

On each day of the show, attendees can participate in Esbit’s In-The-Bag Gear Grab benefit event and score a bag of Esbit camp gear for a suggested donation of either $10, $20 or $30 to the Pacific Crest Trail Association. The grab bags could contain products such as Esbit’s portable barbeque grill, Titanium Stove, CS985H-EX Alcohol Stove & Cook Set with Heat Exchanger, Food Jug, or other great Esbit products. To add in an element of chance and fun, each bag contains different products. Industrial Revolution will also be offering Spork Original (fork-spoon-knife combination utensils) by Light My Fire for just $1 throughout the show while supplies last. All proceeds from the Spork Original sale go to Big City Mountaineers, a non-profit that pairs urban youth with experiential educators for transformative outdoor experiences.
