Friday Gear Report: 8/19/11

BioLite HomestoveIn a Friday Gear Report from October of last year we introduced you to the BioLite Camping Stove. Seems those busy beavers at BioLite have already announced yet another creative stove design called the BioLite HomeStove. Both stoves are slated for release April 2012. Typically startups try to get their first product off the line and making money before starting on the second, but hats off to them for throwing caution to the wind.

There’s not a whole lot of literature about the stove, but here’s what we have so far.

  • 50% Less Wood Consumed
  • Time and Cash Savings
  • 95% Smoke Reduction
  • Improved Health
  • Nearly Eliminates Black Carbon
  • Protects Climate
  • Generates Electricity
  • Charges Phones & LED Lights
  • Microenterprise Opportunity

    Is this ever going to come out? I’ve been waiting patiently for so long and now their website is down. What’s going on with these guys? Is this going to turn out to be a sham?

      There website is working for me and says shipping in July 2012. I can’t speak to whether or not this turns out to be a sham, but I can say manufacturing–in general–is wrought with setbacks.
