Wet/Dry/On-Fire Vac

camping accessory
  [vote for,

As well as removing beach sand from unwelcoming crevasses in the tent, and pumping/filtering local water sources, the vac also adds forced-air to a camp/bonfire, can remove smoke from an enclosed area, and is ready to store or extinguish leftover embers/coals.

It's built mostly like a regular shop-vac, with stainless steel in heat-sensitive places. The removable bin/tank is double-walled, acting as a Thermos/Dewar to keep ingested embers toasty for the next day. Variable fan/pump speed allows various uses.

       That's great, just as long as you've arranged for power distribution infrastructure in every place you might ever go camping ...

       [8th] Such a small detail scarcely needs mentioning, surely?

       The vac can be plugged into a vehicle power port or solar panel for recharging of the battery.

       This is a great idea although, oddly, it still sucks. As for the power source, you've got fire and water, so steam power seems pretty obvious.

       It seems like you should be able to power this with a crank. Crank it up to vacuum, suck, crank some more.
