Product Description

The BioLite Wood Burning CampStove combines the benefits of a lightweight backpacking stove and an off-grid power charger so you can cook a meal while charging your gadgets. The Campstove is the perfect solution for both the backcountry campsite and also Emergency Preparedness Kits.
  • No Fuel to Buy or Carry: Our stoves cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey or in your backyard, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. Quick to light, fast to boil and easy to use.
  • Charge your Gadgets: By converting heat from the fire into usable electricity, our stoves will recharge your phones, lights and other gadgets while you cook dinner. Unlike solar, BioLite CampStove is a true on-demand source.
  • Stay Green: By using renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum, you're reducing your carbon footprint. You'll also keep fuel canisters out of the landfill.
  • Be Prepared: The CampStove isn't just for camping; it's great to have when the power goes out in a storm or other natural disaster. You'll be able to cook and keep electronics charged while power lines are down. No need to worry about your local store being sold out of propane, the CampStove is designed to run on any biomass.
  • Support a Better World: We're using the same technology inside the CampStove to bring clean, safe energy to families across the developing world.
  • Have Fun: Like a campfire, you can sit around the CampStove and watch the flames dance as you roast marshmallows and tell stories with friends.
  • How it Works: Using BioLite's patented thermoelectric technology, the BioLite CampStove converts heat to electricity that powers a fan to make the fire ultra-efficient. Extra electricity can be used to charge small electronics like mobile phones and LED lights.

Not only is the Biolite campstove good for camping, it's also a great product to have around your house in case of emergencies.

It burns with very little fuel, twigs essentially, and it can charge a phone through a USB port.

I have owned this for several months. Just used it as my only stove on a 13-day canoe trip. It has to keep having fuel added frequently, but especially for long trips in the back country it is great to not have to carry fuel. I found that bringing a tiny saw helped because I could quickly saw thumb-size sticks for longer burning once a fire was started. It is great to know it is available for emergencies. It is not lightweight, but it seems very sturdy and that is important to me. It can be used to boil water for water treatment if my water filter failed for any reason. Boils water very quickly.

I bought this campstove a few weeks back for a late season camping trip I was going on up in Tahoe. I saw it at REI and it just looked so cool and I really liked the idea that it runs on wood! It was a bit tricky to light at first but I think I just jammed too many sticks in. After watching the tutorial video on their website and using the fire starter sticks that come in the box, i had much better success! The video is here: [...] I really like this stove and i love that it also charges my phone! 20 min. of charging for 60 min. of talk time ain't bad!

Here's the deal: grab a bunch of sticks and pinecones and you can cook your meal AND charge your phone or headlamp? I brought it with me up to Taconic State Park and within ten minutes I had nearby campers stopping by our site asking about our cool stove. We gathered a EnviroSac full of twigs and we didn't even go through half the bag our entire stay. I was able to charge my phone about 15% each time I made a meal, which was plenty considering my original intent was to just heat up dinner. The coolest part is when the fan kicks on and the flame starts to twirl. It didn't charge my friend's iPhone 3GS but when I talked to BioLite customer service they were super nice and they said that the 3Gs is notorious for not liking 3rd party chargers (sure enough it charged my 4 and now my 5c). I've had three friends give this as a wedding gift and all get credit for being the best gift-giver!

I added the BioLite stove to my Christmas wishlist this year, not really thinking anyone would get it for me. Well, my 76 year-old mom did (go Mom!), and I was very surprised and excited to open the stove on Christmas morning. Not wasting any time, I took it with us for a family trip to the Washington coast on Christmas Day and tested it out several times on the patio of our friends' beach house. After collecting a variety of twigs and sticks from the yard and forest that seemed sufficiently dry (amazingly, it hadn't rained in a few days), I lit a fire using some dry grass and a firestarter stick that came with the stove. The initial results were *very* smoky. But the instructions specifically mentioned that damp wood produces a lot of smoke. So, the next time around, I created my own dry wood by microwaving the sticks I'd collected. Yep, microwaving. But it worked splendidly. Obviously, I wouldn’t be microwaving wood on a camping trip or during a power outage, but I was eager to see how dry wood would work in the stove. With the dried wood, I was able to produce a fire with much less smoke and boil about 2 cups of water in about 10 mins. But I was using farily small twigs, with no larger chunks of wood, and I had to constantly feed them into stove to keep the flames going.

Back at home a few days later, I decided to start anew and try working with larger pieces of wood that were dry from the get-go. I took a 3/4” x 3/4” x 2 ft. long piece of an old cedar trellis and chiseled it into pieces of various sizes–from about 1/4" x 1" long to 1/2" x 3" long. I mixed the cedar pieces with some leftover twigs I'd collected from the coast. In total, I probably had about 1/2 lb. of material.

I always beat up and fully field test any product before writing a review, so when I give something 5 stars, you know it's legit. Here's what I think of the Biolite stove. The TL;DR version of this review can be found at the bottom:

After having more than a handful of mishaps using numerous brands of white gas stoves (gas leaks, accidental spillage, part failures), I bought the Biolite camp stove. The fact that it can run off of nearly any organic combustible is of a huge benefit. There are few environments where you can't find something to burn. The beauty of this camp stove is that it take so LITTLE fuel to do it's job. Two handfuls of small sticks is enough to boil water and cook up a dinner for 2. You can find that even in the most desolate of places.

Edited to add: When you buy a Biolite Camp Stove, you are not only getting an awesome product but also supporting a great cause. Biolite uses the proceeds from it's Camp Stoves to fund a non-profit project that builds and donates fuel efficient and clean homestoves based off of the Biolite technology to developing countries like Uganda, India, and Ghana. Every year hundreds of people in these countries die or experience life threatening health problems from using primitive camp fires to cook their food - often indoors. The smoke from these stoves cause incredible harm to the women who mostly cook the meals and the children they have next to them. The Homestove's that Biolite donates produce 90% less carbon monoxide and soot, thus contributing to a much healthier life for these people. The stoves also provides access to electricity where there is none or where it's simply too expensive for the poor to have.
