SiteLight XL

rated 5 of 5 stars Great globe light for basecamp. I pair mine with an Anker PowerCore 26800 and Anker PowerPort Solar for a total solution. For a bonus, add BioLite SiteLight Mini.  Full review


rated 1 of 5 stars Terrible customer service As much as I want to love Biolite, and I have several products, there is something that you really need to know before you buy their products. Once you buy, you have no support whatsoever, other than a form you fill out on their web site. Then you are at their mercy to answer when they want to, if they want to.

CampStove 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Forests are full of fuel; why carry petroleum? Charge your phone, your camera... as long as you can find bits of wood. Disaster? You can still cook and charge. Car camping?

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
