The BioLite Nano Grid is another very smart invention from the BioLite company. It is a combination of power sharing, flashlight and general light and a charging station.
BioLite Nano Grid Explained
They designed it for camping, but of course it is very handy on board as well! Check out this short explanation video from BioLite. A picture says more than a thousands words, so imagine a picture with words too. It shows the versatility of the BioLite Nano Grid as well as its ease of use.
Smart Camping Solution
One of the things I remember camping was that you always run out of power when you need to make a run to the bathroom (or a tree) in the middle of the night. It is hard to keep all those lights and stuff charged, but with this solution, it gets automatically charged every day. That is what I call a great solution!
The BioLite Nano Grid best function is that it has multiple functions. Charging, light, power storage. BioLite does a great job in inventing multi-purpose tools aimed at camping. But with latest addition, they can go way beyond camping. This would work great onboard too. In stead of a tree, you can hang the lights in the mast or from the beam and you have perfect natural lighting. Imagine sailing around the world, lighting your nights with solar power, I can think of some people who could use this straight away.
As we keep writing here, the BioLite products have shown up on the GreenBoating.eu website a couple times. Not because we have a stake in the BioLite company, but because we think these products are s great they deserve all the attention they can get. We will need a lot of inventions to be totally green, and many little inventions like the guys at BioLite started with the campstove make bring is a little closer everyday!
