When a pot of water was placed on the stove, it started boiling. Those who were present at the public show were stunned. It also works with electricity.

Explaining how the stove could be of help to homes in the absence of electricity, the man said it even uses old batteries.

According to him, the batteries could last as long as two weeks before completely going weak.

How the stove works with fan

Legit.ng spoke with Ndubuisi and he said the stove comes with an inbuilt fan. According to him, it actually needs charcoal for it to work. However, the innovation is that the inbuilt fan helps the fire burn well and the stove cooks faster.

His words:

"You put small charcoal in it. I put a fan in it, and if there is no light, you can use the battery. The fan makes the fire grow faster."
