BioLite Stoves make cooking on wood as clean, safe, and easy as modern fuels, while generating electricity to charge phones, lights and other electronics off-grid.

With only a handful of twigs, trash, leaves, or pinecones, it can charge an iPhone 4S in as little as 20 minutes of burn time, while boiling a liter of water in under five minutes!

Using BioLite’s patent-pending thermoelectric technology, BioLite Stoves convert heat to electricity, which in turn, powers a fan to make the fire ultra-efficient. Excess electricity is then used to power low voltage electronics, such as LED lighting, cellphones, and radios. By having a device that can serve multiple purposes, you can reduce your payload weight and save space.

BioLite recently added two great additions to their line-up, the grill and kettle attachments. With the KettlePot, you need only bring a single piece of cookware that can satisfy a variety of situations and needs. Whether you are making a pot of coffee to start your day or cooking a meal for four at the end of a long hike, the BioLite KettlePot is a true grab-and-go system, conveniently housing the actual stove within itself when on the move. As an added benefit, it is BPA-free!

BioLite has an eventual goal of bringing safer methods of cooking to the developing world with larger versions, such as the nearly-released BaseCamp Stove and the still-in-development HomeStove. Each Camp Stove you buy subsidizes more research and development on a tougher, lower-emission version of their stoves for 3rd world nations and cultures, which suffer immeasurably from cooking with dirty and inefficient fuels indoors.

Whether you are a camping enthusiast, hiker, survivalist, prepper, bugging out, or simply living off-grid, the BioLite series offer an intriguing solution to storing bulky and dangerous fuels or creating large camp fires, when all you need is a meal for two, as well as powering small LED lighting or charging radios and cell phones. This stove and kettle combo, paired with the grill top, are the perfect answer to heat, cooking, and power in a bug out or disaster situation.
