Frankenstorm Proof Your Electronic Lifestyle

We’ve all seen first hand the devastation a quick forming storm like the recently dubbed “Frankenstorm” can cause to city dwellers and suburbanites alike through the loss of electricity, communications, limited access to clean drinking water and loss of the ability to prepare a warm meal.

What if I told you there was a piece of technology that could provide you with all the above, but it only weighs around two pounds and is the same height and width as a water bottle? You’d think I was crazy, right? Well, thanks to an amazing group of innovators and entrepreneurs over at BioLite, they’ve managed to do just that.

Biolite Stove

Their new BioLite campstove has the ability to re-charge your USB compatible devices (think smartphones, LED lights, two-way radios, etc.), boil a liter of water in a couple minutes, and all with just a small handful of twigs! Oh, and don’t forget that it’s re-charging your USB compatible devices while boiling that water, or heating up that meal. It does it all by converting heat to electricity that powers a fan to make the fire ultra-efficient. Pretty sweet, eh? We thought so!

Check out this video and order yourself a few. Get one for the office, and at home and for your neighbor. You never know where you’ll be when disaster strikes, but you can be prepared to survive not only with physical basics, but with your electronic ones as well.
