You can now charge your iOS device from the campfire with Biolite CampStove for $129 [Video]
The BioLite CampStove is now available for $129.
This green energy product is perfect for anyone who is half-geek and half-outdoorsman (or outdoorswoman), and it works just as one would think—burn stuff, charge iDevice. The stove converts the fire’s heat into electricity for a USB charge. Now folks can go camping and be in tune with nature while checking their e-mail at the same time. Heaven.
It apparently takes 4.5-minutes to boil 1 liter of water, features a fire power output between 3.4 kw and 5.5 kw, powers pretty much all USB-chargeable devices, and most effectively burns “sticks, pine cones, pellets and other biomass.” It weighs just 2 lbs., at just 8.25-inches tall and 5 inches wide, and it is made of stainless steel, aluminum, and plastic. The box comes with “BioLite Stove, Firelighter, Stuff Sack, Instructions, and a USB cord.”
Cherry-picked testimonials with the CampStove are on the BioLite website (here).
The Biolite CampStove is available now and ships in mid-July.
