This is genius. The great outdoors is noted for having plenty of fuel for fires, but not for having plenty of batteries. Modern camping being what it is, you’ll invariably need some kind of energy for your phone, flashlight, GPS, or whatever. Enter the BioLite BaseCamp Stove ($300), now on kickstarter. It burns fuel, which powers a thermoelectric generator, which gives you electricity. Cook a steak, charge your phone. It’s pretty great.
