Thermoelectric Camping Stove Powers USB Devices

Thermoelectric Camping Stove Powers USB Devices

A revolutionary device yields efficient cooking power, and the ability to create electricity.

Don Michael Acelar De Leon

BioLite

BioLite is a remarkable thermoelectric camping stove that converts a fraction of the thermal energy from fire into electricity, enough to power both a turbo fan and an external 1–2 watt USB device charger for mobile phones and LED lanterns.

The device yields 1400 degrees at peak, enough to boil a litre of water in approximately 4 minutes. Furthermore, the BioLite stove’s efficient process uses less than 1/2 the wood of an open fire and reduces smoke emissions by more than 95%.
