Created to celebrate BioLite's co-founding of climate change nonprofit Climate Neutral, the Carbon CampStove 2 includes the versatile burner and attachments to make it even more useful. Like the standard version, the smokeless stove creates up to 3 watts of continuous power from the fire's heat to charge cell phones or other devices, with a built-in battery for storing energy — this time in black — with an LED dashboard giving feedback on fire strength, power, and fan levels. Four fan speeds offer control over the flames, and it still runs on any renewable biomass, like sticks and twigs. The Carbon bundle includes a portable grill with room for up to four burgers, a stainless steel KettlePot for soups, stews, and boiling water that doubles as a carrying case for the CampStove, and a USB-powered FlexLight. In short, everything you need to cook meals out in the wilderness, keep your gadgets charged up, and make your way around a dark campsite, with 10% of all sales going towards non-profit Climate Neutral.
