BioLite BaseCamp Stove: Turns Fire into Electricity


Thu, May 15th, 2014 21:00 by capnasty NEWS

Currently seeking your financial support on Kickstarter, the BioLite BaseCamp Stove functions much like the smaller BioLite CampStove, but on a far grander scale that's still easy to carry.

The BaseCamp converts heat from the fire into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator housed within the orange power pack.

This powers a fan that blows air back into the burn chamber for improved combustion. The surplus electricity is then sent to a USB port, allowing you to charge your devices.

Charging Capabilities

The BioLite Basecamp puts out 5W of usable electricity via a standard 5V USB port meaning you can charge everyday useful devices like smartphones, GPS, headlamps, your GoPro, or even tablets. We designed the powerpack to house a battery, meaning you now have the option to charge while you are cooking OR whenever is most convenient for you, without the need for a live fire
