BioLite brings good energy to the planet. More than a decade ago the award-winning company pioneered the high-efficiency biomass-burning expedition stove that charges electronics while you heat or cook. Now they also offer power and lighting solutions, and every item is as innovative as the first.
Their founders, Jonathan and Alec, met at Smart Design in New York City where they quickly bonded over their interest in sustainable design. Alec, frustrated that almost all efficient camping stoves required fossil fuels, had the idea of a wood-burning stove able to utilize its own thermal energy to improve combustion. Jonathan, an avid camper, quickly brought his engineering background to the table and the two began the design process. Countless nights, weekends, and prototypes later, the original BioLite CampStove was born: a portable biomass stove that leveraged thermoelectrics to create a smokeless fire all while charging personal devices.
Beyond the campsite, their unique Parallel Innovation business model pairs the needs of families living in energy poverty with the passions of outdoor enthusiasts pushing the boundaries of life outdoors and on the go.
We tried out the gift-ready Bike Commuter Kit, which includes a headlamp, an LED lantern/charger, a light-diffusing stuffsack, and a reflective leg cuff. Not just for bikers, this kit will light up and charge up many an evening in the outdoors.
