BioLite adds Bluetooth to camping lantern

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, May 26, 2016

BioLite adds Bluetooth to a camping lantern.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    BioLite is a company that has been bringing innovation to the great outdoors with products like its CookStove and CampStove which generate electricity while letting you cook with a clean wood burning fire.   Now BioLite is expanding its line up of off grid lighting products with the Base Lantern.    Marketing Director Erica Rosen…

“It’s the world’s first flat pack lantern that actually transforms your light into a miniature smart grid.  We’ve been able to shrink the size of a lantern down to a quarter of its original size while still providing a lot of very powerful light.  But it’s also Bluetooth connected, which means you can run the lantern from your phone.”

The bad news is…the Base Lantern…which will sell for about a hundred dollars…doesn’t arrive until the fall.   You can find more info at BioLiteEnergy.com.   You can find us at BootCamp..com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
