The BioLite FirePit is now available to purchase

BioLite, the company behind one of my favorite wood stoves, successfully funded another Kickstarter project last year, the FirePit.

Built on the same technology as its existing camp stoves, the FirePit can burn either wood or charcoal and has 51 air jets to inject the fire with oxygen. This not only makes the temperature throughout the burn chamber more uniform, it helps reduce smoke. It has a built-in 10,400 mAh battery that will last up to 24 hours and can be recharged via USB or a solar cover that is sold separately ($60).
