BioLite Wood Burning Campstove With USB Charger
The BioLite Campstove is a cool multifunctional device designed to help campers cook a quick meal and … charge their iPhone or Android smartphones!
The devices works on renewable biomass (twigs, pinecones, wood pellets, you know, the regular stuff you find on the ground in the woods!!!) and has an output of 2W @5V (max continuous), up to 4W @5V on it’s peak. In plain English an output power of 2W @ 5V means close to the same power as a PC USB plug (a 20 minutes charge will allow an iPhone up to 45-60 minutes of talk time). It’s not the fastest charge in the world, but still, I’d be glad to have it with me when outdooring for a couple of days, away of regular electric power sources.
