Being off the grid is fun, but unless you’re really special, you never go full-off. Most people like to bring at least a cellphone with them, be it only for emergency calls. What better way to charge these then, than with a BioLight campstove. It’s a small device in which you are meant to burn wood or other combustible biodegradables (leaves, pine cones, etc.). While you place your pot of beans atop to heat, a thermoelectric element inside provides power which outputs through a USB port.
It’s $129 and should be ready to ship for “camping season 2012”.
