When thinking of gadgetry, one might not normally give much thought to camp stoves. Used in situations when a wilderness cookout is necessarily and campfire just won’t do, camp stoves may not have seemed primed for an eco-upgrade, but as the Guardian reports, upgraded it has been.
The Biolite campstove is an eco-friendly camp stove that can cook meals, boil water, and charge electronics “all on a handful of kindling.” Traditional camp stoves, with their butane or other non-renewable fuel, are damaging to the environment. Biolite looks to address those issues by way of thermoelectricity. Once started, the heat from the burning kindling generates electricity, which in turn powers a fan that keeps the fire going. The electricity generated is enough to also charge phones and tablets.
