Taking a trip into the wilds? Hitting up some must-see South Florida campgrounds?
You will almost certainly need to heat or cook something, whether that be food, water, or whatever. Usually, you’d bring along matches or flint. You can carry fuel. If you want to be all-natural, you can do it the old-fashioned way with sticks.
Or, you can be smart and bring the BioLite CampStove 2. As you’d expect, it is an aluminum, portable stove for cooking. It produces smokeless flames and burns clean, and you can use natural resources to keep your fire going. Just find some sticks, twigs, pinecones, or use the included pellets and you’re good to go.
Of course, this wouldn’t be an impressive gadget without some other features to phone home about. The CampStove also has an integrated 2600 mAh battery that you can use to charge your mobile devices, with or without a live fire. Just plug what you need to charge into the USB outlet, and the energy is generated via thermoelectrics – the electricity comes from the burning fire. Pretty awesome, huh?
An LED dashboard on the front of the BioLite CampStove will give you readouts, like fire temperature, power output, and fan speed – yes there’s a fan. A FlexLight is attached, and it can be positioned to give you just the right amount of light. When you’re in the dark, that’s going to come in handy for sure.
Everything folds up, and the stove is easy to stow away for travel. Hikers and backpackers can toss it into their packs, or you could even carry it. Optional accessories are available too, if you want to do more with it. You can set it up as a KettlePot, portable grill, and even a CoffeePress in the morning when you need an energy boost yourself. Though, you will need to buy the appropriate attachments separately.
