Portable Biomass Electricity – Biolite CampStove

This amazing camping stove will not only cook your food, but produce portable biomass electricity too, by converting the heat from the fire, into energy.

The stove is very small, and will pack into the drinks compartment of any reasonable sized backpack, which means that you can carry a stove with you while you hike.

The most impressive part about this stove though, has to be the USB charging device. They’ve managed to convert the heat produced from the fire, into usable electricity, to charge a phone, or other USB devices.

Unlike portable solar powered devices, this stove will produce portable biomass electricity at any time, because whether it works or not is not dependant on the weather. 

The stoves cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. Quick to light, fast to boil and easy to use.

By using renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum, you’re reducing your carbon footprint. You’ll also keep fuel canisters out of the landfill.

The CampStove isn’t just for camping; it’s great to have on hand when the power goes out in a storm or other natural disasters. You’ll be able to cook and keep electronics charged while power lines are down.

The company is using the same technology inside the CampStove to bring clean, safe energy access to families across the developing world.

  1. sure, heat loss is a given ..you have spoken enilerty of negatives and have overlooked the reasons why anyone would want an external boiler in the first place.Maybe a person wants to burn wood have you ever had to constantly clean up the debris that always occurs with carring wood inside the house?How about the ash that invariably floats away inside the house when you clean out the fireplace or stove?What about the labor involved in carrying the wood inside? With an outside boiler the wood can be stored right next to the boiler and who cares if ash floats away during cleaning?Another factor is that in the pictures you have posted the installer quite obviously didnt insulate the underground pipes a very amatuerish installation like that gives potential people who would consider such a heat system the wrong idea.You mentioned rust ..maybe you think that boilers inside a home last forever? todays boilers have a lifespan of about 20 years or less ..they might not be externally rusted but inside their time is up anyhow after that time.How about fire hazard? You didnt mention how much safer an external boiler is than having a coal, or wood boiler or stove inside the home. Many insurance companies also increase premiums for houses containing any wood burning devise. An external wood fired boiler does not increase insurance costs
