The Biolite Camp Stove
January 10, 2016
Camping gear has embraced the need for a greener lifestyle and energy efficient products in the camping world have been on the rise. Campfires are an essential part of the camping experience but the materials used to build one can leave a lot to be desired. If you are looking for a cleaner way to enjoy a campfire that uses renewable resources and creates its own energy, the Biolite Camp Stove might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
First of all, this compact stove burns off of small pieces of biomass. Sticks, twigs, and pinecones can all be used as fuel to keep the stove burning. No need to bring any gas on your trip! The wood will create a smokeless fire that leaves less of an impact on the environment and also is kind on the eyes of those gathering around it.
You can use the flames to cook meals or boil water but the fire also creates 2 watts of electricity that can charge your smart phone, headlamp, camera, or LED light. You can plug right in to the USB port located in the attached powerpack and in as little as 20 minutes, have an hour’s worth of talk time on your cell phone.
Not making calls in the wild? Well don’t let the stove’s stature fool you. This little guy can boil up a liter of water as quickly as 4.5 minutes. You can cook and charge those headlamps for some nighttime exploring!
The Biolite Camp Stove uses internal fan and gas jets that circulate air into the fire to improve combustion and efficiency. Its scalloped pot stand allows you to place pots and pans on its surface without fear of the stove falling over; it also helps to divert the flames away from the powerpack.
The honeycomb heat mesh is a protective barrier that helps keep the stove cool to the touch, so this is a family friendly stove of epic energy saving proportions. The stove also features foldable aluminum legs for easy storage when not in use.
