BioLite CampStove Could Make You A Happy Camper

If you're going camping any time soon, you may want to look into the BioLite CampStove. The portable, lightweight BioLite CampStove makes it easy for campers to enjoy hot meals while charging their personal tech devices.

Weighing in at only 33oz and about the size of a Nalgene water bottle, the CampStove can put out 5.5kW of heat. It takes about 4.5 minutes to boil a liter of water on the stove, and about 20 minutes to charge a smartphone for 60 minutes of talk time. BioLite works by converting heat to electricity. That electricity powers a fan that makes the stove super efficient, and the leftover power is used by the USB port to charge your devices.

You can get a CampStove through the BioLite website or on Amazon. With accessories like the Portable Grill and KettlePot, also available through Amazon, you can grill burgers or brew coffee. The KettlePot also serves as a handy carrying case for the CampStove.

While the benefits of a portable stove that charges your devices are pretty cut and dry, there are some not-so-obvious benefits as well. First, since the CampStove burns wood, there is no need for carrying extra fuel like kerosene or propane. Burning wood also reduces your carbon footprint. And you don't need to be a camper to take advantage of the BioLite CampStove. If you've ever been unfortunate enough to lose power in a storm, you know how something like the CampStove could be of use. You can find more information on the BioLite CampStove on their site and read reviews on Amazon here. This could be one product that makes you a happy camper.
