You set it in the forest and it has cameras that can see little things run by it and then, when they get close enough, bam! A claw comes out and grabs the little animal and carries it into a cage. Inside the cage, the animal is burned and fuels the recharging of batteries.

Batteries are harvested on a periodic basis, depending on the amount of fuel.

Lil' Bodysnachers are not inhumane. They are only used in areas where there is irrefutable abundance of little critters.

       I was thinking of a similar ad campaign to the ipod nano-chromatics.

       That's a good question, but I think the answer might be 'maybe'. I set a bag of cheetos on fire and that worked, anyways.

       I think energy is only generated if the body is dried; otherwise evaporating water uses all the energy.

       But...what if they decide that We are irrefutably overabundant little critters?

       To get energy, you'll have to squish out the water, let it dry a bit, and burn the resulting paste.

       Why do I always feel slightly unnerved whenever I see "Lil'"?

       It's all those gangsters.

       well it would at least provide more calories to not have to evaporate the water as well. Anyway, I don't think the critters would burn.

Because the apostrophe is in the wrong place perhaps?

Hmm, crematoria steam-engines...
