New Camp Stove Goes Off the Grid

One of the most clever camping gadgets we’ve seen since the Noah Tarp by Kelty is this awesome little camping stove from BioLite.

The stove burns wood but uses a thermoelectric generator to run a fan that makes the fire ultra efficient. Think of it like a miniature blast furnace. The electrical energy can also be used to charge small electrical appliances- like a phone or MP3 player.

Weighing only 33 ounces the makers claim a liter of water can be brought to a boil in only 4 1/2 minutes using less than 2 ounces of wood. A home version is also in the works.
