rated 3.5 of 5 stars A kettle with a built-in thermoelectric generator that can charge USB-powered devices off-grid. Heat water, get a charge. A superb option for emergency use during power outages and something to consider for multi-day basecamp expeditions, but likely too much weight to justify its presence on most backpacking trips.

rated 0.5 of 5 stars BioLite base camp: Made in China, has a poor chimney for burning, needs more mass in the top plate for heat retention, grille basically melted because it is made out of stainless and is way too light. Probably could have been a better alloy of stainless. After reading the website I was kind of excited.

rated 2 of 5 stars Nice, neat, but... BioLite stoves: Here's my take after camping with one. They're kewl, really kewl. I like the concept, but... here's the problem.

rated 5 of 5 stars The heat from the fire generates electricity via a thermoelectric generator to power a fan creating airflow for improved combustion. Surplus electricity is sent to the USB port for charging devices. If you are a prepper/camper/hunter this stove is for you. This stove works as advertised. Grill, boil, cook, and charge with this fully integrated system. The CampStove nests within the KettlePot and the Grill folds down to 3.5 inches, making this a compact way to meet all your outdoor and off-grid needs. Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars BioLite stoves make cooking on wood as clean, safe, and easy as modern fuels while generating electricity to charge phones, lights, and other electronics off-grid. The¬†BioLite CampStove¬†cooks your meals and boils water using nothing but twigs, pinecones, and other solid biomass you collect around camp, eliminating the need to carry fuel along with you. The camping stove unit is made up of a high-temp steel fuel chamber with lightweight protection screen and anodized aluminum legs, power module,… Full review
