BioLite CampStove Review

    I saw this article and I thought I should share it here. This looks like a pretty nifty new product, its a regular wood burning camp stove which uses the heat from the fire to generate electricity which can be used to charge gadgets.

    The only thing is, I don't know if the power and current generated from the fire would be stable enough to be suitable for doing more than charging batteries.

    That's pretty cool. These days having one more way to charge your cell phone or radio is a good idea. I would not want just one way though so I'd also add a small solar charger.

    Yeah, a solar charger is what I currently use. I just thought it was neat the way it converted the heat from the fire into electricity.

    BioLite CampStove: Charges Your Phone and Warms Your Tush, By Burning Twigs



    What do you think?

    Personally, I feel like if I'm going camping, I really need to shut my phone off instead of using it. Most often, I don't have reception out in the woods anyway.

    But I guess for someone who can't go without, this is a good splurge.

    You have a good point my friend. Other than taking a cell phone for emergencies I think most of us would benefit from a technology "fast."

    The reason I thought of it that way is that our church is promoting a 21 day fast and one thing the pastor mentioned was technology. THAT would be harder for me than less food!

    I live in the Pacific Northwest and if you go into the remote areas for camping you ain't gonna get a reception with your phone. Your better off with a Satellite phone in which you can rent them for camping. As for the biolite campstove it is a great device for recharging your electronics.
