Fiddy, you need one of these...
Saw this I think in a recent wire magazine I think. Way cool.
That's awesome. I wonder how long the twigs burn in this stove.
Because it's not convenient to have to fill it again and again.
I dunno. I'm sure a good hand crank dynamo would be faster, but still pretty neat.
that very one is on my list for "preperation" items
what are you prepping for mr chainblade
I do a bit of prepping myself, and it's basically for the unknown. And not "zombies!" unknown, but shit that could actually happen. Weather emergency, depression, break down of civil society, redneck rampage, etc.
Is that power button from the Xbox 360?
Ah shit, "iPhone is not included."
I'm not a big camper, but why do you need to carry around a device to put the kindling in before you light said kindling to cook something? Can't you just build a fire with the kindling you had to gather up anyway and just cook with that?
Well, some parks (particularly out West) forbid open fires.
Especially during the extreem fire danger conditions we've been in lately. I believe I'd rather have a propane one or one like we used to make in scouts out of coffee (#3 tins) and tuna cans with newsppaper/paraphin wax fuel.
Gosh. I guess I can understand it with forest fire conditions, but whole parks that allow camping but no fire? Gosh.
Only during "extreem fire conditions". For the most part you can have fires in approved fire pits at improoved campgrounds during the other categories of fire conditions. (low, moderate and high).
It's so powder dry in the forests right now that only a fool would want to be camping anyhow.
Well, a few twigs in a campfire won't burn for long. I guess that one feature of the stove is slower burning. Because as I said, if you need to constantly refuel it, it's a retarded piece of equipment.
It's rather neat though. It uses temperature differences (ambient air temp/combustion chamber temp) in conjunction with a peltier junction to produce
electricity for the fan and exess electricity generated goes to power/charge a USB device. I'd be curious as to just how much biomass it'd take to actually cook food though.
Just to be prepared for anything from camping to the power going out, to economic collapse, etc etc.
Fuck cooking--just use your iPhone to order PIZZA!!
Mmmmmm................pizza. Campfire pizza!
