A conversation with Jonathan Cedar, co-founder and CEO.

WHAT IS BIOLITE CAMPSTOVE, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

BioLite CampStove is a wood-burning stove that generates electricity from the heat of its own fire. Its patented thermoelectric design dramatically improves combustion, reducing up to 90% of the toxic emissions and cutting fuel consumption in half. So using only sticks and twigs, you can create a smokeless portable campfire and generate power to charge your phone.

Light a fire and within minutes it’s generating electricity.

WHY CREATE CAMPSTOVE?

My co-founder, Alec Drummond, and I have always been avid campers and we grew increasingly frustrated by the need for petroleum fuel canisters to cook in the backcountry. After three years of tinkering on the weekends, we took a fully functioning prototype to a clean cookstove conference. That’s where we realized how much our technology could have a greater impact globally. Half of the planet still cooks indoors on smoky open fires.

It’s not every day that you can power your phone with a pinecone.

It’s physics, but it feels like magic.

WHAT MAKES CAMPSTOVE SO COOL?

We’re turning wood into electricity; that’s pretty dang cool. We’re also reinventing the grid on a personal scale. Whether it’s connecting with friends around a fire after a long hike, or providing a safe way to cook and light your home in India. We’re empowering people to power themselves.


Where do we go from here?

We’re on a mission to bring energy everywhere. We want to give you a complete energy ecosystem that can power your life totally off the grid: Cook, Charge, Light—those are our areas of innovation.
