The Biolite camp stove burns wood to cook your meals, but also produces electricity to power a small fan within the unit, this in turn directs more oxygen to the flame, creating more heat and power. Keep adding wood and the Biolite camp stove will not only quickly and efficiently heat your camp meals, but the electric current it produces can be used to charge electrical devices via a USB port. This makes it an excellent cooker to have not only while camping, but in case of an emergency, you are able to charge cellphones, headlamps and radios. The Biolite camp stove packs down into a cylinder the size of a large can of beans, and weighs less than one kilogram.
