Charging your phone with a stove

Folks who venture hiking for significant periods will know this. That out there in the middle nowhere, your digital devices may not last long. And thus one needs to be sparing in their use. But what if you’re told that you will have a source of power to charge your phone out in the wilderness?

If this product truly works as the article suggests, then one would be truly shooting two birds with one stone – we mean with the stove in more than one way.

For imagine using this stove and plugging it into your phone (and/or camera) to charge, even while it is used to cook your food or boil water. Such a luxury isn’t it? Yes it will require you to chop some wood and fire it up. Some might balk at the idea of potentially damaging the environment that way. Perhaps the use of solid fuels might work too?

Point is – would you go to this length to put some juice into your digital devices when you are out in the wild? Some people go into the woods to get off the grid so to speak. Others simply want to be disconnected because they are so wired into the digital lifestyle when at home or at work. But does the idea of being able to capture beautiful vistas out there and being able to send them out to the world excite you? Think about it for a moment before you respond.

For the hikers and trekkers amongst readers out there, would this be something you’d consider?

    1. Good for you! But we were more like thinking in the middle of being ‘out there’ it might be useful to keep the phone charged up in case. For us we would probably turn off mobile data anyway when you there! lol

  1. I think rather have a camera that uses battery and have spare batteries. Will there be internet connectivity in a remote place? Probably not. And nothing wrong with sharing the pics later when back in civilization. Enjoy nature… property.

  2. I am not really a hiker, so I can’t respond to that. But if I was, I would think this was a fabulous advantage, however, one always have to have a balance, otherwise one’s imagination is captured by technology rather than nature!

    1. That is true. The first and foremost use of the stove… well is to cook. and if there is an opportunity that it would juice up the phone and tablet as well… that’s a nice bonus.
