For the outdoorsman in your life, the Biolite Stove is a must. The first of its kind to use wood both to power and make power, BioLite’s patented technology converts heat from the fire into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator. So when your phone, GPS, or digital camera runs out of juice, you’ll be able to power up – no outlet necessary.
The generator in the Biolite powers an internal fan for improved combustion, creating a smokeless portable campfire that you can enjoy in your backyard or out on the trail. Surplus electricity is sent to the USB port for charging devices. Setup is easy, fuel is free, and big beautiful flames are roaring in a matter of minutes.
The stove’s power pack also has a battery, so users can either charge in conjunction with cooking or at a later time without the live fire. And it doesn’t just burn like a regular wood fire either – the stove is so efficient it can boil an entire liter of water in just four minutes. With over one million dollars and counting on Kickstarter, the Biolite is one hot commodity.
