BioLite Camp Stove

The wife got me a biolitestove for our anniversary. Haven't had a chance to test it out yet, but it looks like it is well built, albeit HEAVY weighing in a 33oz. All in all, I think it is a great idea, and I will definately take it car camping and maybe even to to some base camp hikes.

Anyone else seen one or tried it out in the field? I plan on doing a short hike, with the kids, later this month and will post some results then.

i geeked over one this week. wife thought i'd gone crazy.

it's a brilliant idea especially as gadgetry follows us into the wild. would be best in places without tons of quality sunshine(rendering solar chargers useless), or if you want to have plenty of light from a bunch of small LEDs set up as lanterns.

there's all kinds of things you could rig it up to power while cooking... portable radios etc, that don't have battery packs and minimal electronics for light-weight use.

BioLite Stove

Has anyone used one of these: Biolite Stove?

It's big and heavy, and I think the USB port is stupid (wish they'd get rid of that). But the idea of not carrying fuel sounds like it might make it worth carrying, at least for short trips.

Anyone have experience with them?
