Three years ago BioLite very successfully took its CampStove with device charger to market as a compact, clean energy approach to outdoor cooking. They followed up with the larger, equally popular BaseCamp Stove. Today the company continues its quest to become the world's greenest provider of camping and outdoor tech with the NanoGrid, a slight deviation from their previous releases that won't cook your s'mores for you, but will illuminate your roasting rods so you won't lose your marshmallow to the fire's flames. I mean, unless you suck at roasting marshmallows.

BioLite describes its NanoGrid as a "lighting and energy hub that fits in the palm of your hand." In full, the system consists of two separate elements: a PowerLight 3-in-1 lantern; and the SiteLight, a pair of stranded overhead lights. Alone the PowerLight can serve as a 200 lumen lantern, a 250 lumen torch, or a 4400mAh USB powerbank. As a charger, it will fill up to 3 smartphones and 3.5 GoPros. As a pure light source it can run continuously at the campsite for up to 72 hours. The PowerLight has dimmable power modes as well as an emergency strobe setting. It has a light range of 33' as a lantern and 328' as a guiding torch.

The attachable SiteLight set is fueled by the PowerLight, with each fixture is capable of outputting 150 lumens. String the lights around up to 20' of your site's area for more complete and evenly distributed illumination during the Dan Fogelberg singalong. As a system, the Power/SiteLight can run for up to 22 hours.
