Earlier this month, a group of British enthusiasts posted on the website IndieGoGo project original tourist burner under the trade name Tegstove. A key feature of the new development is that Tegstove in its modern design combines the functionality of a full-fledged gas burner, thermoelectric generator, and a portable charger, and the whole system is compact enough sum.
Burner Tegstove manufactured using a durable and heat-resistant polymer, which is complemented by the metal. The design of the burner nozzle includes a gas burner with piezo, sliding metal supports under the cooking container, heat spreader, thermoelectric generator, as well as plastic sliding bearings, one of which is located the battery and USB-port, you can charge virtually any mobile device.
The burner is directly by liquid butane gas that comes through cylinders type P220. As the developer says, it is liquefied butane cylinders P220 was the most effective as a stoker at cost and at work. Faster cooling of the gas, as compared with propane gas mixtures is used for cooling the thermoelectric generator, which in turn leads to an increased release more energy and stable supply of the gas.
To begin production of the first batch of gas burners, Tegstove developer must collect at least $ 50,000, currently collected about $ 3,500. The minimum cost of processing the pre-order, taking into account the international shipping is almost $ 130.
