Hi BrotherJames,

I enjoyed reading your posts on how my area of Similkameen has no/little gold! 

Anyway, I looked this device up and found the kickstarter page.  It looks like they are fully funded. 

It costs $180USD+shipping.

Spec shows the battery on the generator will store about 6 Amp hours so would be good for about an hour with a Johnson 1250 GPH pump.   You'll also need an adapter to go from USB to 12V.

Takes 4.5 hours to fully charge.
