Plan on going camping or having a fire in your backyard in 2015? If so, check out the BioLite Wood Burning Campstove! BioLite’s patented technology converts heat from the fire into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator. This in turn powers an internal fan for improved combustion, creating a smokeless portable campfire. The surplus electricity is sent to the USB port for charging devices.
The BioLite Wood Burning Campstove powers most USB-chargeable devices including smartphones. Twenty minutes of charging with a strong fire gives you about 60 minutes of talk time on most smartphones. During a full burn, the stove can boil one liter of water in as little as four minutes and 30 seconds. Right now, it’s retailing on Amazon for $129.95.
