Fire gets an upgrade

The wood-burning Biolite stove has received an upgrade.

The Biolite CampStove 2 ($259.99) is claimed to be 50 per cent more powerful than the original version. It features an integrated battery and an updated dashboard for improved control.

Burning only wood, the CampStove 2’s fan creates a smokeless fire that can cook meals, boil water (4.5min for one litre) and turn the heat produced into usable electricity to charge your devices.
