Anyone who owns a smartphone will agree that any new source of a charge is a welcomed one. And if you're the outdoorsy type, having a trying to keep a decent charge in your phone when out in the wilderness is a whole other issue. The folks at BioLite hear you, and would like to offer a solution:
The BioLite CampStove.
Our stoves cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. Quick to light, fast to boil and easy to use.So now you can use the same fire to cook your hot dogs and recharge your phone. Simply brilliant. And the entire thing is environmentally sound, using green energy.
...By converting heat from the fire into usable electricity, our stoves will recharge your phones, lights and other gadgets while you cook dinner. Unlike solar, BioLite CampStove is a true on-demand source.
Hell, I may buy one of these just for use at home. All I'll need is something to burn. Guess I'll start collecting the labels off my bottles of Jim Beam.
