If you're interested in off-the-grid, sustainable, eco-friendly cooking, lighting and charging options for your camping and outdoor adventures, you'll want to take a closer look at the BioLite products available at BestBuy.com. BioLite was launched in 2012 by two engineers who created the original BioLite CampStove. Its groundbreaking design uses renewable organic fuels such as twigs, pinecones, wood chips and brush, instead of charcoal or gas, and converts waste heat from combustion into usable electricity to power a fan. This reduces fuel requirements and cuts down on toxic smoke and carbon monoxide emissions. The latest CampStove version, called the CampStove 2, not only grills your burgers, roasts your marshmallows and cooks your soup, but it also produces enough excess electricity to charge/power your USB-enabled devices, such as phones and tablets, via a USB port.
What Separates BioLite from the Pack?
Many outdoor enthusiasts gravitate toward BioLite for their outdoor recreation and camping needs because of the environmentally friendly, energy-efficient designs. According to the company, since its inception, BioLite products have enabled thousands of households in multiple countries to start using clean, reliable cooking and lighting, leading to cleaner air, reduced carbon monoxide output, and a significant amount of electricity generated by off-the-grid households.
BioLite products not only add convenience to your camping, hiking, boating and other outdoor experiences, but they also make dependable additions to your survival gear. They fit in nicely among other emergency preparedness items, such as a hiking GPS so you don't lose your way, stored food, and emergency radios or 2-way radios to maintain communication. BioLite stoves and grills can handle cooking chores at least as well as traditional propane-fueled stoves, and you can find fuel almost anywhere. The lighting options provide diffused, bright illumination you can customize to your situation, and the charging options are powerful and reliable. Plus, you can use the stoves to generate electricity to kick-start the BioLite lighting and charging devices. All you need is a USB charger cable to recharge the lithium-ion batteries.
Other BioLite Products
BioLite cooking products include other options in the cookers category, such as the BioLite BaseCamp, which provides an elevated cooking fire and a grill surface that holds up to eight burgers, and the BioLite CookStove, which has a USB-charged electric fan with four speeds that lets you choose the intensity of the flame it emits so you can use different settings for control over your cooking. The BioLite KettlePot works with BioLite stoves, cooking like a pot, pouring like a kettle, and doubling as a carry case. The BioLite Portable Grill works with the CampStove to provide 55 square inches of cooking area. Additionally, the StickSnapper helps you break sticks and twigs to use for fuel, and all-natural BioLite BioFuel Pellets offer you a clean-burning fuel alternative.
BioLite lighting includes several groundbreaking lighting devices that are known for being powerful, while providing diffused light that's easy on the eyes. The BioLite NanoGrid offers multiroom lighting in a single hub and can be daisy-chained in any configuration to meet your needs. It emits significantly more lumens than kerosene and offers directional task lighting for studying, cooking and other activities. There are also several SiteLights, FlexLights, Lanterns and PowerLights available, all of which offer bright lighting, with energy efficiency.
BioLite charging features the BioLite SolarPanel 5 model that lets you charge your USB-compatible devices, as well as other BioLite products, miles from civilization, requiring only sunlight. As long as there is a charge remaining in the battery, the SolarPanel will continue to charge the device, even without direct sunlight.
