bioliteI am going off grid!

I have been trying to dial down my hyperbolic tendencies in recent posts, but today I must break out as I believe that my latest find is one of the greatest things I have ever come across in my life: the BioLite Camp Stove.

Seriously, the BioLite Camp Stove is a self-contained portable stove that you can use for camping that not only creates heat for you to cook, but also turns that heat into electricity so you can power things like lights or charge your phone.

About the BioLite Camp Stove: “Using BioLite’s patent-pending thermoelectric technology, BioLite Stoves convert heat to electricity that powers a fan to make the fire ultra-efficient. Extra electricity can be used to charge small electronics like mobile phones and LED lights. BioLite develops and manufactures advanced energy products that make cooking with wood as clean safe and easy as modern fuels.”

I really love the idea of this thing and I am going to put an order in for one today.  That said, I have no real need for a camp stove, but this is so cool I am going to invent a reason to have one.  If I end up spending another winter up here in the mountains, this may come in handy (along with the generator) should a storm take out electricity for a while.  I can take my BioLite Stove outside, heat me up some Dinty Moore Beer Stew and charge my iPad – what else does one need?
