Biolite Stove is portable camping stove which converts boiling water into energy to charge your portable devices.Â I like the symmetry already!
The Biolite Stove is no bigger then a large jug of water.Â It can hold up to 1 liter of water and can boil that same amount of water in [about] 4.5 minutes.
The fire power, as they say, ranges between 3.4kw and 5.5kw and will charge at a continuous flow 2W @ 5volts or peak of 4W @ 5volts.Â Peak power flow depends on the BTUs of the fire while it’s going…you know, the hottest the fire will get, the most energy it will create as the water is boiling at the highest rate.
The Biolite Stove will charge anything via USB.Â As to the efficiency of that charging process, nothing to say it’s fast or slow, but conceptually a great idea for those portable devices.
Cost.Â Only $150.
The Biolite stove is portable and is green, but you need to get past the idea of breathing in the smoke of a wood fire.Â Some believe it’s worse then smoking 1,000 packs of cigarettes.
