    The BioLite Wood Burning CampStove™ combines the benefits of a backpacking stove and an off-grid power charger so you can cook a meal while charging your gadgets at a backcountry campsite.

    • There's no need to buy or carry heavy fuel canisters with this stove—simply collect twigs during your journey and burn them when you get to camp
    • Using patent-pending thermoelectric technology, the stove converts heat to electricity that charges an internal battery and powers a fan to increase the efficiency of the fire
    • Extra electricity can be used to charge small electronics like cell phones, headlamps and rechargeable batteries via the USB port; devices and charging cables sold separately
    • For an Apple iPhone® 4S, 20 min. of charging with a strong fire gives you about 60 min. of talk time; charging times vary by device as well as by the strength of the fire
    • During a full burn, the CampStove can boil 1 liter of water in as little as 4 min. 30 sec.; place your pot or pan on the built-in pot support
    • Like a campfire, you can sit around the CampStove and watch the flames dance while you roast marshmallows and spend time with friends
    • Twigs from hardwood trees, like oak, maple and hickory, will burn hottest and cleanest; choose wood that's dry, and avoid burning leaves, as they can be smoky
    • CampStove can also burn wood pellets (available at many home and garden stores) if you're camping in a spot where you're not allowed to collect twigs or trees aren't present
    • BioLite CampStove weighs about 2 lbs.and is about the same size as a 1-liter Nalgene water bottle; power module stows inside the fuel chamber when the stove is not in use
    • Anodized-aluminum legs create a stable platform for cooking; legs fold in for compact storage when you're done making dinner
    • CampStove's starter battery helps kick-start the fire before the stove begins generating its own power so it's best to charge the battery for 2 - 4 hrs. before leaving home
    • BioLite CampStove comes with firestarter, stuff sack, USB cord for charging the internal battery and instructions for use; does not include a cable for charging devices

    BioLite Wood Burning CampStoveis rated4.1597out of5by119.
    Rated5out of5byfromIt's GREATAdd a fire starter and some sticks and in a few minutes you will be ready to boil water or have a hot meal. Sticks do burn hot and fast so have a small pile ready to go. I have not used the charger, but the charge light does come on quickly and is ready to do its job. It does cool down fast after use, and will be ready to pack and go. At a little more than two pounds, its not an ultralite.

    Rated3out of5byfromNice try but really just at toy!Look, if want to show your friends something really cool and talk about how neat it is go for it. It gets 3-stars for innovation. However, when you take it backpacking you'll be highly disappointed. Its heavy/bulky and requires you to locate dry-fuel that may be difficult in certain conditions. I'll be drinking hot tea using my Jetboil in 2 minutes and having diner before you get the fire going. And the charger is useless.

    Rated1out of5byfromPoorly Designed for Adding FuelI was very excited to use the BioLite Wood Burning CampStove. I was hoping this would become my new favorite camping toy. I'll cut right to the chase and address the main issue I have with this product: the inconvenience of adding fuel/wood once I am cooking. In order to add wood, the cup, pot, etc. must be removed. To maintain the heat, the cooking appliance must be repeatedly removed and put back on to accommodate adding wood. I even purchased the BioLite pot/mug that sits snugly on top and has cut outs for air-flow. The air-flow holes seemed like a good place to add the wood, but even when the wood is cut into the smallest of pieces that was an annoyingly cumbersome process. Another idea is to get a very large amount of coals formed to supply the heat, but I tried that and still needed to add wood. Altogether I am very disappointed in this product. BioLite has a much larger rocket stove that they furnish to third world countries. Perhaps a miniature version of that might work very well. In addition, I was unsatisfied with the charging capability. It started to charge my cell phone, but then stopped and would not resume (I followed the directions). I hope this review helps.

    Rated1out of5byfromA Toy. Novelty. Dont bring itJust returned from a long weekend in the Olympic Natl Park @ 3500 ft level. Snow on the ground and the 4.7m hike in was mostly trail breaking through wet snowpack. I was itchin' to try out my new BioLite! stoked! Here is my initial reaction; It's heavy, It requires an INFERNO for 20 minutes before it will charge anything electrically (One of my buddies pulled out his compact solar charger and charged his ipod to full in about 15 minutes... the BioLite had yet to start charging anything). The bottom line is I'll never take this unit on another backpack trip. The only thing I was able to get it to do quickly was boil a pot of water. It will boil a pot of water faster than an MSR if you've got some good dry, prestaged, chopped up wood to constantly feed it. I am super surprised to read all of the positive comments about the BioLite. I will give it another shot in the deep summer just to see if it performs better when there are a thousand pieces of dry sticks and I dont have to saw a round off a dead tree, quarter it, then halve the quarters then short chop kindling just to get some dry wood for this thing... It looks cool though....

    Rated2out of5byfromCool looking- useless utility wiseThe Biolite is heavy and doesn't really charge my phone that fast. Biolite is a cool looking stove and makes a great flame with sticks but its not totally useful in the backcountry

    Rated5out of5byfromBioLite worth the moneyCooks really well but used more fuel than we anticipated. Once we adapted to how to use it, that wasn't an issue. Truly love it. Compact and easy to carry. We have all the accessories and are glad we purchased them as well.

    Rated4out of5byfromBioLite StoveReally great to not need a bunch of gas canisters on multi day trips. Really easy to use and clean, cooks a bit slower than a JetBoil but should have you boiling water in at most 10 minutes from the second you set it up. Seems that its better for the environment because it uses dead organic matter and doesn't use any disposable gas cans.

    Rated5out of5byfromThis stove is amazingI was able to barbecue with this stove in 10 degree weather like a champ. I used some random twigs and then adding some of my hickory smoking pellets for flavor. I must say this thing did an amazing job. The food tasted great and smokey. I have used many other types of grills from the standard disposable charcoal to expensive webers, pellet barbecues, propane, gas, etc. I must say for the diversity and ability to throw this thing in a backpack i must say i was impressed. I had charged my friends LG android phone and for almost 2 hours of being in below freezing temperatures it charged 50%, not bad for considering i was going to be out there cooking anyway. This stove is such a great product with a great company who is doing great work at helping reduce CO deaths around the world. Cannot stop complimenting this product enough i am completely satisfied and beyond my expectations.
