Doesn’t it blow when you’re out camping and your iPhone battery dies on you?

With BioLite, charging is just a few twigs away. The Nalgene-sized camp stove converts heat into electricity, allowing people to charge up phones, lights and other USB devices in the great outdoors. This is a much more immediate energy source than say solar power, working even in cloudy days or at night.

 

BioLite can boil a liter of water in four and a half minutes by burning biomass, such as sticks, pine cones and pellets. The 2-pound stove is available for $129.

If you’re out camping, you really should be using this opportunity to unplug. Forget about your phone, and go make some s’mores instead.
