Using only twigs, you can cook your food with this quick-lighting little camp stove. The CampStove from BioLite is only 8.25″ x 5″, weighs 2 pounds, and folds up for easy packing. When you get to the campsite, it burns twigs, pine cones, pellets, and other biomass, so you don’t have to carry heavy fuel cylinders. The CampStove can also convert some of the heat from your fires into energy to charge your USB-chargeable phone, LED flashlight, or GPS. It’s also useful to have at home in case of power loss or other emergency conditions. BioLite is also using this technology to provide safe fires in developing countries. The CampStove will ship in time for the camping season this year. The cost is $129; you can reserve yours now, but you won’t be charged until the CampStove ships.
