Camp Stove USB Charger
The Biolite Camp Stove USB Charger is a pimped out camping stove. Actually… it’s a carefully designed, high-performance camping cooking stove… and a biomass-fueled USB power outlet! Read on…
The stove uses natural fuel, such as sticks, twigs, leaves, pinecones… or any other biomass you can stumble upon, to create a small fire. Extra heat from this fire is channeled into a side compartment, and converted into electricity. The electricity powers a fan, which in turn blows more air directly into the heart of the fire – it fans the flames to burn much hotter, and also cleaner.
This all means that this stove, even though it uses natural fuels, burns smoke-free and is also highly efficient!
The electricity generated by the burning process is also made available for you to use, through a USB outlet at the base of the orange generator section. This outlet provides the standard USB 5 volts, at 2 watts. For comparison, a PC USB outlet provides 2.5 watts – so its safe to say that you won’t be getting any super fast charging done with this.
However, if you are in an emergency situation, you need a charge top up, or you have a couple hours to spend charging, this will do you just fine. After all, it doesn’t rely on temperamental sun or wind energy to power it!
