Weekend campers and weekday engineers Alec Drummond and Jonathan Cedar were annoyed by the inefficiencies of portable stoves. They required batteries, a charge, or fuel, all of which had to be rationed and could run out in the middle of an excursion. Between 2006 and 2008, they designed a prototype for a replacement: a stove that generates electricity from its own flame. They call it BioLite, and it has since inspired something a lot more significant than better camping.
