BioLite offers an environmentally friendly source of electricity

    For a long time, mankind has been interested in the issue of environmental pollution and the search for alternative sources of nutrition. BioLite has managed to combine these two aspects in one device - BioLite Campstove.



    BioLite company develops and manufactures advanced energy-efficient products that will allow you to combine two of the most necessary things on a trip - cooking and charging your mobile device. Behind this device is a 50-year history of development and more than 30 unique patents. The products of this company are used in many countries of the world, including those supplied as humanitarian aid for people affected by natural disasters. The products of this company can save up to $ 47 million for the whole world - this is how much the amount of fuel consumed for generators and light sources in places without access to electricity.



    The principle of operation is the conversion of thermal energy into electricity, but what is most interesting, these devices do not work on liquid fuel or gas, but on wood and organic biomass (foliage, cones, etc.). You can forget about generators and additional fuel, you no longer need to carry explosive camping gas cylinders and bulky gas furnaces. Fuel for your camping stove can be found under your feet. And you will never be left without a connection due to a discharged mobile battery.
    I think that everyone can find a use for these devices. You can take them with you on a camping trip, fishing and just to a country house (after all, often there is no electricity in country houses).



    Let's look at the device in more detail.

    You and I examined the entire BioLite product line, to be honest, as a fishing enthusiast, it would be very convenient for me to take the portable version with me, since with the right body kit it removes the need to carry a bunch of unnecessary things. But BaseCamp for hiking is not suitable, even in a convenient case, since +8 kilograms of weight seems to be tolerable only the first kilometer of the road. But still, the ability to conveniently arrange parking, charge the phone, install lighting, cook with one device, while not carrying gas or gasoline (carbon monoxide from which is far from safe) is very useful.
