The Adventurer Portable Microwave is on the way to revolutionise outdoor cooking. OK, so part of the fun of camping and being outdoors is cooking over a fire. However, there are times when you could really do with bringing some tech with you. The blurb on wayvtech website says:
Heat Food, Anywhere…
Introducing The Adventurer, The World’s First Portable Solid-State RF Food Heater ‘Microwave’. Groundbreaking Technology Has Evolved The Microwave Oven In To A Hand Held Device Designed To Heat Food And Beverages, Anywhere
Their website is actually hard to navigate so we have found as much information for you as we can – we actually think its a great product. The Adventurer uses a rechargeable lithium battery, so it’s ideal for camping, car trips, or your desk lunch, and has all kinds of snazzy features: a digital display, a lock/unlock button so your leftovers won’t spill over your bag, and a little handle. As all things run on batteries it has limited battery life of around 30 mins which is more than enough to warm up your outdoor meal.
