There are always a few things that stand out at the Outdoor Retailer show. One of my favorites this summer was the BioLite CampStove. While I like the possibilities for backpackers and other outdoors users to charge electronics, I'm more excited about the possibilities the company is exploring in using similar technologies in Third World countries to help people produce electricity while cooking their meals with the BioLite HomeStove. Awesome stuff. The BioLite CampStove goes for $130 and is now available. Visit the BioLite website for more info.
Here's a write up from the company.
Converting heat from the fire into usable electricity, BioLite CampStove will recharge your phone and LED lights while you cook. Unlike solar, the wood burning BioLite CampStove is an on-demand source plus it is the eco-friendly choice - utilizing renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum to keep canisters out of landfills.
