There are many ways you can get heat when camping, whether it’s by starting a campfire, using propane canisters, or in a more modern touch, by packing the BioLite CookStove. It uses a battery and a fan to essentially turbocharge the combustion process, allowing you to throw in almost any combustible element you find in your surroundings: twigs, leaves, pinecones, dry grass, etc. The fan provides four speeds, which adjust the flame’s intensity and make it dead simple to cook your meals, boil your water, and bring a little bit of civilization with you while away from the city bustle. It’s not a completely off-grid solution since the battery will eventually run out, but you do get a good 30 hours of cooking time, which should get you through a few days outdoors. At $100, it’s a must-have for outdoors enthusiasts.
