  7. How Does The HomeStove Work?
    The user feeds local fuels – e.g. wood, cow dung, or crop residue – through the side of the stove. Then, they light the fuel much as they did their open fire. The heat from the flame is converted into electricity through a thermoelectric generator. This electricity powers an internal fan, which force-feeds oxygen into the flame, eliminating the smoke, and leading to the near complete combustion of the fuel. The stove also generates surplus electricity to charge mobile phones and LED lights.

FAQs

  1. What kind of fuel can you use with the HomeStove?
    The primary fuel that the HomeStove uses is wood, but it can also burn other forms of biomass, such as crop waste, and dung. However, please do not burn charcoal in the HomeStove.

  2. How do you light the HomeStove?
    Use small twigs, wood shavings and paper as fire starters and light them using matches. Once the fire starts, gradually add larger pieces of wood in a crisscross pattern. 3-4 pieces of wood should suffice, do not overstuff the stove as doing so makes the fire weaker.

    The HomeStove produces 2W @ 5V, enough to charge a mobile phone or power the LED light (which is included).

  4. How bright is the included FlexLight?
    The FlexLight provides 100 lumens of light.

  5. What type of cookware can you use on top?
    The HomeStove is consistent with traditional cooking practices and any type of pots or pans can be used to cook on it.
