The BioLite is a modern, wood camp stove. Using a thermoelectric generator (TEG), the BioLite recycles its own thermal energy into electricity. The first thing the power is used for is the fan. Through convection, the fan increases burn efficiency. This allows you to use twigs and small sticks as the fuel source, instead of logs or large branches. The second and coolest thing the BioLite does is charge your smartphone or other gadgets via USB.
