The BioLite Wood Burning Phone Charger is a camp-stove that combines a lightweight backpacking stove with an USB charger so you can cook a meal while charging your phone.
How effing awesome is that?!?!?! This thing is the ultimate camping gadget and would also be nice to keep in your emergency preparedness kit for when the lights go out.
The BioLite uses patented thermoelectric technology to convert heat (from burning sticks – no expensive pre-packaged fuel) into enough electricity to charge up your phone or USB flashlight anywhere/anytime. In addition, it’s also a functional camp-stove, so you can cook your meals while you wait on your phone to charge up.
It’s light (about 2 pounds) and small (about the size of a 1-liter Nalgene water bottle). As a result, it’s easy to stow or pack for when you need it.
Basically, this is the most awesome camping/emergency gadget EVER and you need to get one, right now!
