CampStove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Easy to light. Never have to carry fuel. Works as a very small campfire to leave no trace. Charge feature takes a long time to get much of charge. My son gave me this stove for Mother's Day. It was new on the market. We had been watching the development for quite a while and I was very interested to test it out. Wish there was a way to test the products before buying. I have a garage full of backpacking gear because I enjoy trying out new gear. The stove works like many other rocket stoves. You… Full review

SolarPanel 5+

rated 4 of 5 stars The SolarPanel 5+ is a sleek and cleverly designed solar panel/ small storage unit that works. Compared to other solar panels’ specifications this unit seemingly isn’t the best value in terms of cost and weight to power output, but having tested hands-on I can say that this device is as reliable as the available sunlight.

CookStove

rated 3 of 5 stars Outside of those who share BioLite's concern about using biomass fuels cleanly, the BioLite CookStove is best suited for gadget lovers who like to play with fire. Being a wood-burning stove that requires electricity, this is an odd bird; This stove will keep you busy. I would not recommend it for most recreational backpackers due to the listed cons, but for car camping, bug out / emergency use, or simply as backcountry entertainment, this stove could fit the bill. Overview: The BioLite CookStove… Full review

PowerLight Mini

rated 4 of 5 stars Just picked this up and love the flexibility of the product. I don't see this as a replacement for a good headlamp when trekking in darkness and more focussed light is required. However, for a great tent light or travel light, this is fantastic. Adding the capability of a supplementary power source makes it even more versatile. Full review

PowerLight Mini

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Conclusions: The BioLite Powerlight Mini provides reasonable light for use around camp, with the additional benefit of recharge capacity for a cell phone, inReach, handheld GPSR, or small camera, and at a reasonable price. It is readily recharged with a small solar panel, making a total of just over a pound, which is reasonable for a backpacking trip. Heavy use as a night or hiking light or as a recharging source for frequent cell phone or inReach tracking use may require extra backup battery storage. Full review
