An intelligent touring accessory
So what makes this recently launched, compact, portable gas stove stand out from the crowd? And how can it improve your al fresco dining?
For a start, it is one of the success stories from TV show Dragons' Den and is a product backed by Peter Jones – and now available at many outdoor specialist retailers.
It is a stove that harnesses the heat it generates to power a battery, which means you can charge your portable electronic devices while you cook.
So this intelligent stove is handy if you enjoy time away from your van, for example hiking or on the beach, as it can help keep you fed and fully charged.
All you need to add is the butane gas cylinder!
And it can charge any device, so long as it can connect to a standard USB port, making it very versatile.
The Tegstove tech
The 1.4kg compact unit, with clever adjustable legs to make it stable across 300mm of ground, has been carefully designed to make the best use of the energy produced to charge the battery. And the heat is spread over a wide area, meaning your food should be cooked evenly, too.
This two-in-one device means you're ready for long days out on your caravan holidays, without gobbling up your payload with lots of portable devices, or needlessly filling your backpack when you head out on foot or on a bike.
And why is it called the Tegstove? Because it makes use of a powerful Thermoelectric Generator (TEG) to produce energy, which is stored in an internal battery and harnesses the power of butane gas.
So if this intelligent portable gas stove sounds like the perfect piece of touring tech for you, this is the competition for you! Just fill in the short form below and you will be entered into our prize draw.
