BioLite’s patented core technology captures waste heat from the fire through a heat probe attached to the orange powerpack.
Heat is converted into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator. This powers a fan and sends surplus electricity to a USB charging port.
The internal fan forces air back into the burn chamber dramatically improving combustion and creating a cleaner, more efficient burn.
The BaseCamp uses the same core thermoelectric technology used in the BioLite HomeStove, a durable biomass cookstove that reduces smoke by up to 95% while simultaneously providing users with the capability to charge mobile phones and other devices.
Originally launched on Kickstarter, the BioLite BaseCamp was born out of thousands of domestic requests for the HomeStove. Using the same geometric body, the BaseCamp is optimized for outdoor recreation while the HomeStove is optimized for daily family cooking in developing rural and peri-urban off-grid communities.
Your purchase of a BioLite BaseCamp helps us fund the initial costs to build and support a self-sustaining HomeStove market abroad. We call it Parallel Innovation.
