Here is where the BioLite Camp Stove becomes handy. Using whatever you can find in the woods to burn, leafs, sticks, pine cones, the Stove converts the burning of it into electricity and using a USB port on the stove, you can be updating your Facebook status in no time. And because this is a working stove, you can boil water (in case someone is giving birth in the wilderness) or cook up some grub at the same time. The beauty of it is that you need no fuel, you are not polluting the environment (except with your conversations and tweets) and it costs $129.
recovery following a hurricane know how hard it can be to live without electricity, and while a generator will provide more electricity, it requires gas and if you don't have enough air coming into the area, you could end up at the morgue. With the BioLite Camp Stove, all you need to find is some debris that can be burned, and you can cook some hot food and power up your handset. (Of course, that's a moot point if your carrier is down).
If you're planning a camping trip this year, or live in an area threatened often by hurricanes, you might find this a useful product. If you are interested in ordering one, check out the sourcelink.
