Yet again, I open my email to find one from Mark linking to something amazing.This time it’s the BioLite CampStove site. Considering his love for fishing, camping and hunting, it’s no surprise this stove caught his eye.
The BioLite CampStove does not operate on fuel. Instead, once the stove is set up by setting the aluminum legs and filling the unit with biomass (twigs, kindling, etc.), the stove uses an innovative process to produce flame and heat.
What I love about this product is that it enables one to enjoy the great outdoors without leaving an environmental footprint. It’s not necessary to take the risk of transporting fuel and results in less waste, a greener experience when enjoying the outdoors, and converts heat to electricity to charge electronic devices such as iPhones, USB devices, and lights.
This stove would appear to be a better solution than solar powered because it can be used readily at night and in low light situations.
This would also be great to have in the event of power outages, natural weather events, etc. Wouldn’t this device be wonderful for those dealing with Superstorm Sandy in New York and New Jersey, providing the ability to cook, heat small spaces, and charge necessary electronics?
This company is using the same technology in their BioLite HomeStove, a unit that will bring clean, safe energy access to those in need in the world. The company claims this stove consumes 50% less wood, produces 95% less smoke (wonderful for us allergy sufferers), protects the climate and environment, and generates electricity.
