The device is also a safer option to an open fire, a more dangerous method which Biolite say causes 2 million premature deaths annually worldwide.

If thoughts of a gorgeous summer evening spent around a campfire are keeping you warm this winter, you’ll be glad to hear that Biolite is working to make camping a little bit greener. The company just launched an ingenious multi-tasking camp stove that converts waste heat into electricity – so you can recharge your phone while you roast your marshmallows over the fire.

Although Biolite‘s camp stove requires campers to collect wood to burn, it’s a sound alternative to stoves powered by canisters of petroleum gas. The device also offers a safer alternative to open fires, which cause Biolite says cause 2 million premature deaths annually worldwide. The electricity generated by the stove can be used to power an LED light, charge an iPhone, or power a USB radio.

    If they can produce this cheap enough, they can be provided to small communities in secluded areas that aren’t connected to the electricity grid. Great item!
