“Clean energy is all around,” begins the product launch video from Bio Lite. They’ve introduced a camping stove that can create electricity simply by burning wood. Pretty ingenious, if you ask me.
BioLite stoves make cooking on wood as clean, safe and easy as modern fuels while generating electricity to charge phones, lights and other electronics off-grid.
The company offers two products – the Camp Stove and the Home Stove. The Camp Stove is for campers who need a way to power the gadgets, like a cell phone or GPS. It’s also a great way to promote clean, renewable energy by not using petroleum gas powered stoves. It’s all great for emergency preparedness in your own home, in case the power ever goes out for an extended period of time. Its price tag is only $129.
The Home Stove, on the other hand, is more meant for people in 3rd world countries. According to Bio Lite, more than 3 billion people around the world cook on fire burning stoves. The Home Stove reduces the amount of necessary wood by half, and reduces harmful smoke emissions by 90%. It also provides a way for these homes to have a source of electricity.
