Remember the good old days when going camping meant "roughing it?"
Well, if this is "roughing it," sign me up!
A new Kickstarter project, called the BioLite BaseCamp Stove, is a portable wood stove for your camping trips that turns the fire and heat used to cook your food into electricity.
So while you're grilling up a good burger, you can charge up your phone, tablet, GPS unit, flashlight, headlamp, or anything else you might need to charge with a USB cable.
There's no need for charcoal or propane - just twigs, sticks and small logs will suffice.
But how does it work?
The BaseCamp converts heat from the fire into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator housed within the orange power pack. This powers a fan that blows air back into the burn chamber for improved combustion. The surplus electricity is then sent to a USB port, allowing you to charge your devices.
