BioLite Camp Stove Charges Gadgets, Defeats The Purpose of Camping

Sometimes you just need to escape into the wilderness, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. But I’m not leaving my cellphone at home…oh no…f*ck that. I’m getting a BioLite camp stove because it efficiently burns wood for cooking and it has an attached thermoelectric generator that transforms residual heat into energy.

This energy is used to power a small fan that improves combustion, but there is around 1-2 watts left over to power your gadgets through a USB port. Isn’t roughing it fun?
