One for the gadgetheads

A backpacking cookstove that runs a tiny generator so you can charge your USB devices in the wild. Because what's the point of eating, of continuing to live, if your phone and GoPro are dead, right?

Actually, the idea of a simple, compact, fire-to-electricity generator is pretty cool and it probably has more uses out there that are less hip and more fundamental, like powering lights or well pumps in third world countries.

  1. With the number of lost or hurt hikers you hear about these days who use their cell phones to get rescued, maybe being able to stay charged up has a greater purpose. But, as always, I appreciate your humor. LOL
