There’s nothing like going outside and grilling a nice, warm meal on top of a hearty fire while surrounded by family and friends, especially now, during the Autumn season. Obviously, almost everyone out there loves to grill, some of us more than others. Nevertheless, whenever you’re cooking outside, whether you’re looking to throw a backyard party at home with a nice cozy fire or you’re simply looking to go camping outdoors and kick back, relax next to a fire pit and enjoy Mother Nature, there’s one major thing that you should consider. You should always decide to go with a reliable fire pit brand, and secondly, you should obviously place your fire pit unit at a safe distance from your house or camping site. This brings us to the BioLite FirePit.
The BioLite FirePit is a high-quality portable outdoors smokeless wood-fed fire pit that allows both barbecue and outdoors enthusiasts to easily enjoy the warmth, smell, crackle, and feel of a wood campfire, all without ever having to deal with any smoke whatsoever. Not only can you use this portable fire pit unit to warm yourself up at the end of each day of this Autumn season, but you can also even cook hibachi-style meals on it by using its Removeable Grill Grate.
Not only that, but the unit also comes equipped with a USB rechargeable 10,400 mAh powerpack that can either power your fire for up to 24 hours, or ultimately, be used to recharge your USB-enabled devices.
Now, let’s have a more detailed look at it and see everything that this portable smokeless wood fire pit has to offer.
DESIGN & SPECS
Starting with the fire pit’s size, the entire unit measures exactly 27 inches long by 13 inches wide by 10.5 inches high (26.7 cm) while having its legs folded, or ultimately, 27 inches long by 13 inches wide by 15.8 inches high (68.6 x 33 x 40.1 cm) when having its legs fully unfolded.
Yup, you’ve heard it right. One of the best features that makes the BioLite FirePit an awesome outdoors fire pit is its built-in folding legs, which makes the entire unit extremely portable.
Not only that, but while the unit weighs a somewhat bulky 19.8 lbs (8.98 kg), its high-quality built-in carrying handles ultimately allow you to transport the BioLite FirePit back and forth with ease.
Additionally, the fire pit’s main body frame is composed by a X-Ray Mesh that brings users a 360° viewing angle that ultimately lets you see everything that’s happening inside the fire pit’s roaring fire, including teh glowing embers at the bottom, your choice of fire-pit wood slowly gasifying in the middle, and heart-warming, yet smokeless flames coming out at the very top.
As mentioned earlier, this fire pit also comes equipped with a Removeable Grill Grate that can be used to cook hibachi-style meals. The fire pit’s total grill surface measures exactly 18 inches long by 7.25 inches wide, thus giving you exactly 130 in² (square inches) of cooking area to cook on.
Moreover, the fire pit’s fuel rack can also be fully adjusted to accommodate one of two different types of fuel. As such, you can choose to start its fire with either wood or charcoal as your choice of fuel.
When choosing to go with wood as your fuel source, the fire pit features a maximum capacity of up to 4 standard firewood logs.
On the other hand, you could choose to go as small chunks of charcoal as an alternative for your source of fuel to get the BioLite FirePit’s fiery flames going strong, yet, with zero smoke at all.
In case you’re wondering exactly how that works, the BioLite FirePit can achieve hyper-efficient flames thanks to its patented airflow technology while simultaneously giving its users a front-row seat to the magic thanks to its X-Ray mesh body, which as mentioned earlier, will provide you with a 360 degree view of its hearty flames at any time you decide to light it up.
Basically, this outdoors smokeless wood-fed fire pit uses 51 air jets to pump its fiery flames with oxygen along special key locations to ultimately create a more uniform temperature and mixing of gases inside its fire, which can dramatically improve combustion so that users can get a more efficient burn with way less smoke than many other conventional fire pits that are currently available on the market.
BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE
As mentioned earlier, the BioLite FirePit also comes equipped with a detachable and rechargeable 10,400 mAh battery powerpack that can not only be used to power up its fire for up to 24 hours, but also could be used to recharge any of your USB-enabled devices whenever you’re not using the unit as your dedicated fire pit.
To recharge your USB-enabled devices with the unit’s detachable battery pack, literally all you have to do is detach the 10,400 mAh powerpack, connect your Smartphone, tablet, etc. to the battery pack via a USB-C Charging Cable, and let your device recharging for a few hours.
Lastly, since the 10,400 mAh powerpack itself is a rechargeable battery pack, recharging the battery pack is also quite easy, as all you have to do is connect it to a USB-C Power Plug and wait a few hours to have it back to a full charge.
