BioLite CampStove and USB Charger

The BioLite CampStove is a clever new camp stove that uses wood, pinecones and twigs as fuel and delivers a high temperature heat output to cook, along with the ability to charge or power 5V devices like mobile phones, GPS, LED lights etc… from the USB output.

The main body of the BioLite CampStove is stainless steel with foldable anodised aluminium legs. The yellow power module houses BioLite's patent-pending thermoelectric generator, converting heat to electricity which powers a fan to make the fire ultra-efficient. It also contains a small microprocessor which manages the flow of power between the fan and USB port.

When not in use the yellow power module stores neatly inside the main body of the BioLite CampStove offering a compact pack size and weighing under a kilo.

Where can I get them from?
