. also it collapses for travel
Open wood fires are inefficient, wasting potential energy and creating toxic smoke due to incomplete combustion. Carefully designed stoves that use
fans to blow air into the fire can dramatically improve combustion. However, such stoves require small amounts of electricity to power their fans and
most people who cook on wood are without grid or battery access. BioLite stoves solve this problem by converting a fraction of the fire’s thermal
energy into electricity to power our combustion improvement system. Excess electricity is made available to users for charging small electronic
devices such as Cell phones and LED lights.
so far so good.........
From through hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail to hunters in West Virginia, the BioLite stove suits many needs. Take it to tailgating events or just
roast marshmallows in the backyard. Unlike petroleum stoves, you can travel with the BioLite stove on airplanes and not worry about finding the right
fuel when you get to your destination. With the ability to burn almost any solid fuel and no batteries to lose their charge, the BioLite stove is a
great emergency preparedness tool.
ok im starting to like this ...........
now i want one of those , my concern is how long would the power generator last and is it any good in the wet and wind.......................
