Even surrounded by sticks and brush, many campers still pack fuel for camp stoves into the wilderness. BioLite's CampStove saves weight and protects the environment by removing the need for petroleum fuel, and it has a USB port to charge your gadgets!
This stove has design, function and engineering packed into a small package. Roughly the size of a large plastic water bottle, it works by harvesting the heat energy from burning wood to create electricity to power a small fan; the fan increases the efficiency of the wood combustion generating even more heat and energy. The extra heat increases the boiling/cooking potential on top of the stove, while the extra electrical energy can be used to power an LED light or charge a USB device.
The CampStove isn't just for camping. It's also ideal for emergency situations. The manufacturers claim that the stove's efficiency fan makes it much safer to use than conventional wood burning stoves used indoors.
Aside from the CampStove, BioLite also produces a HomeStove to be used in countries that still primarily cook over open fires. They've won numerous design awards and are passionate about making cooking safer while giving families without reliable electical grids access to power.
