Inside our Technology

  • +


    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.

Technology Saving Lives: CampStove Parallel Innovation

Parallel Innovation

The same core thermoelectric technology used in the campstove is also used in the BioLite HomeStove - a low-cost biomass cookstove that, reduces smoke emissions by up to 95% while simultaneously providing users with the capability to charge mobile phones and LED lights.

By incubating core energy technologies that can serve users in both developed and developing markets, BioLite is able to solve long-term, high-impact problems. We call it Parallel Innovation. Your purchase of the BioLite CampStove helps us fund the initial costs to build and support the HomeStove market abroad.

I used the stove and grill to fix lunch at home to try it out and I love it. It performed great and cooked everything (chicken quarter, sausage, and 2 T-bones) quickly. Even with rotating items on and off the grill, it took no longer than using a larger BBQ pit with expensive charcoal and I used Oak wood found on the ground around our home (in the woods.) I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
