Survivalist Christmas Gift #9 for under $200: BioLite Stove

What is it?

This is the coolest camping stove in the universe.

Why is it such a great gift?

Because its the only lightweight compact camping stove that generates electricity. How cool is that!?

Here’s how it works. You put twigs and small pieces of wood into the bottom chamber of the stove. The orange thing mounted on the side, takes the heat that’s generated and turns it into electricity. It also has a USB plug, so you can charge your iPhone from your camping stove.

What are the alternatives?

Sterno…… and a dead cell phone.

What will Santa do if I don’t give this as a gift?

He’s going to make sure that your tinder is wet.
