The BioLite Wood Burning Campstove is a lightweight wood burning backpacking stove. As far as wood burning stoves go, the BioLite Wood Burning Campstove is on par with other stoves and there is nothing spectacular about its size or cooking ability.
The BioLite Campstove boils a liter of water in about 4 to 14 minutes depending on ambient conditions and the quality of the wood being used as fuel. Size-wise, it is roughly about the size of a 1 liter Nalgene water bottle and weighs about 2 lbs.
What makes the BioLite Wood Burning Campstove stand out from other stoves is that it can recharge your mobile devices or power a USB device while you cook. The stove has a built-in battery that is used to power a fan for stoking the fire. Heat from the fire is converted into electricity and is used to recharge the battery. After burning about 5 minutes, the battery has enough charge to start charging your device. 30 minutes of charging yields about 10% of battery increase on an iPhone.
Besides backpacking, the BioLite Campstove is ideal for emergency purposes as well.
