BioLite Goes Big in 2014 with Super-sized Wood Stove

The new BaseCamp provides the perfect cooking experience for groups while generating electricity using BioLite’s patented technology

January 16, 2014, BROOKLYN, NY BioLite LLC, an innovator in energy solutions, is going big in 2014 with the launch of the BaseCamp stove. This bold addition to the BioLite family lets outdoor adventurers easily cook for big groups. Like its game-changing predecessor, the CampStove, the BaseCamp generates electricity through BioLite’s innovative technology.

Inspired by thousands of requests for the HomeStove, the BaseCamp is an evolution on the original stove designed for emerging markets. Thoughtful features like a one-touch grill-to-boil lever, which diverts the flame from the grilling surface to the main burner, and folding legs make it easy and comfortable to use in a variety of outdoor environments.

Like the BioLite CampStove, the BaseCamp is powered by wood and other biomass, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. Its side feed entry makes for easy refueling.

By converting heat from the fire into usable electricity, the BaseCamp recharges phones, tablets, lights and other gadgets while cooking up a meal. Unlike solar, BioLite’s technology is a true on-demand source. The BaseCamp features enhanced power output that generates 5 watts for charging devices – twice the power of the CampStove. An intuitive LED dashboard display lets you know heat output and when it’s ready to charge devices. In addition, the BaseCamp comes with a flexible USB light, helping you keep your site illuminated which comes particularly in handy when cooking.

“We are excited to launch a HomeStove-inspired product into the outdoor market,” said Jonathan Cedar, BioLite Co-founder and CEO. “This is the perfect embodiment of our commitment to parallel innovation. By incubating core technologies in both the emerging and recreational markets, we’re able to develop breakthrough designs that benefit everyone. We’re looking forward to bringing the next big thing in campfires – again.”
