rated 2.5 of 5 stars The top hook melted the fourth time it was used. Prior to that it was a lot of fun being able to burn wood both for cooking and having the ambience of a fire. I have only had the Biolite for a few days however it has already melted the top hook so I now can't remove the fan unit. Prior to that I used it at home and at a friend's house and cooked up some chicken on a frypan and the heat level was great once it was going well. It does burn through wood fairly quickly, however you can just build up… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars The BioLite CampStove is a very good backpacking stove with excellent charging capabilities for your electronic devices in the field. Well thought out accessories for the stove are available including, the Kettle Pot, a flexible LED light, and a very functional grill. Every time I'm in the backcountry the BioLite is my go-to stove. Not 5 stars because of the lack of more than two fan settings (easy to burn food on High setting). I first saw this stove advertised as a popup ad on a social media site… Full review

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. Given the durable design, light weight, reliability, but lower power output, this is best suited for off the grid travelers needing to charge a single device at a time.  … Full review
