BioLite FirePit – A New Way to Have a Fire
This fall, have gatherings around the fire anywhere you want with a portable fire pit. The BioLite FirePit is a smokeless wood burning smart device that offers the warmth of fire without the aggravation of the smoke. The reason for the smokeless design is to let you use the full power of the fire, but with modern technology that lets you control it as well. Prepare to see the reinvention of the fire pit from BioLite, a startup that focuses on off-grid energy products.
Inside the body of the FirePit are 51 air jets to inject oxygen along with a fan inside the units USB-rechargeable orange power pack. The combination of these elements creates an environment with improved combustion and plainly put, better crackling fire with less wood.
The whole build of the BioLite FirePit is done with an eye on control, as the airflow system features 4 fan speeds for adjusting the flame’s intensity. You can even control it with the free BioLite iOS and Android app. The fan features 24 hours worth of charge on “low,” 10 on “medium” and 5 hours on “high,” giving you plenty of burning for a late night bonfire or campout.
Wood Fires vs. BioLite FirePit
Traditional wood fires require gathering firewood, finding a dry place, and then lighting a match. BioLit FirePit simplifies the process. Yes, wood is required, but building a fire here is a thing of beauty. The fire pit has been designed with X-Ray Mesh to let you see the full stage of combustion from the embers to the flames instead of you just staring at a pile of logs — it’s you seeing science in action.
BioLite FirePit is also made for cooking right on an open fire and accommodates both charcoal and wood. With its folding leg design, you can take it easily to the beach or forest for meals in the great outdoors.
