The best festival gadget yet?

I was reading the Guardian’s Festival Guide a couple of weekends ago and saw their festival tech you must have page and stumbed across what I would consider to be the best new invention for the modern festival age!

Allow me to introduce the BioLite Campstove which turns a campstove into a USB charger for your smartphone! UH-MAZE-ING!

Basically all you need to do is find some twigs, set them on fire and the stove converts to heat into electricity (via a fan). Now at £140 it ain’t cheap but to be fair this is obviously fairly new tech from a small company, but I can’t see it taking too long before this sort of thing becomes commonplace at festivals (and other types of camping).

The video above is the companies promo and the one below is a fairly thorough review.
