Biolite CampStove

Turn fire into electricity using wood. The BioLite CampStove generates usable electricity for charging LED lights, mobile phones, and other personal devices. Burning only wood, the CampStove creates a smokeless campfire that can cook meals and boil water in minutes. Setup is easy, fuel is free, and flames are hyperefficient with performance on par with white gas stoves.

A truly ingenious idea, the CampStove brings the campfire into the 21st century. It burns twigs, bark, pinecones or any other biomass that you can muster while you're out and about. Excess heat from the fierce little flame generates electricity via a thermoelectric generator to power a fan that creates airflow for improved combustion, greater efficiency and less smoke. As well as running the fan, the generator produces enough spare electricty to send to a USB port that will charge your phone, MP3 player, LED lights or other electrical gadgets.

You can boil a litre of water in under five minutes (depending on the strength of the fire, of course) and a twenty minute burn can provide enough mobile phone charge for an hour's talk time. All this from a unit that weights only just over 2lbs .
