I got an XL for emergencies, but I pull it out occasionally in summer because it's fun to use. As promised, fuel can be twigs, dried bark, pine cones and just about anything else you can get to burn in a campfire. I've burned dried corn cobs and sawdust without problems. Once it's burning well, there's plenty of heat. It doesn't handle wet wood very well, and if you manage to choke out the fire you'll get impressive amounts of smoke instead of heat.

When you set the output to high (the fan has two speeds), you generally need to feed in more twigs as you cook, but the overall efficiency is little short of amazing. A few handfuls of twigs of thumb-thickness - or a few pieces at wrist thickness - will cook a simple meal. All that's left at the end is fine ash, and not a lot of that.

Note that it's fussier than a propane stove - you need to keep an eye on it and occasionally move the food to feed in a few more twigs, and the heat output tends to vary based on how much wood is left and what stage of burning it's at. Second, it needs batteries to run. You can buy a little solar charger from the company that sells it, to keep the batteries going, but it's a small and low quality charger. Third, getting it fired up takes practice - or a sized splash of lamp (paraffin) oil on top of the twigs, which works without fail, but brings you back to dealing with bottled flammables (since I use this outside my house, that's not a problem for me, but might irritate a backpacker). Finally, while I've yet to tip it over, I wish it had a wider base.

But it's much less fussy than cooking over a campfire, far more efficient, cleaner, and there's no fuel cost other than the occasional battery. No propane canisters to store or dispose of. It stows well and is simple and sturdy.

This Wood Gas Stove (WGS) is well worth having. If you like camping, then you should definitely consider having this. WGS burns clean, produces a lot of calories (boils 2L in less than 8 min.), and the fuel is, well, free (unless you are addicted to wood pellets). You can use from twigs to pine cones, even the BBQ charcoals.

It has a learning curve, so it takes a few attempts to run it smoothly, if you start with fire starters. If you use igniters, then it is no problem, just wait a few minutes, until the fuel catches a decent fire. Then you cook.

It can be used as the outdoor 2-person fireplace, and since it hardly produces smoke, when connected to the battery power, it is quite convenient. It transforms into a mini-BBQ, with the appropriately sized grill. If you do solo camping, LE should be good enough. XL is large, and it should serve multiple campers.

The construction is of an acceptable quality. Constructed of a thin gauge stainless steel, the stove is sufficiently strong and light. The stove is held together by aluminum rivets throughout. One problem: one of the aluminum rivets that hold the inner bowl to the outer shell could not handle the repeated heat stress. This happened after about 4-5 times of use. The rivet failure created a gap between the inner and outer shell, and the air leaked out, thus reducing the air pressure inside. I had to drill out the three aluminum rivets, and replace them with steel rivets. I doubt any of these three will ever pop again.

One thing was left with a room to be desired. The battery pack housing is of a shabby quality. For the price of the stove, the manufacturer should have invested a more quality material.

This stove works so well, it is almost too hot to fry something on top in a pan! I fill it with small chunks (cubes About 3/4" to 1") that I make out of old pallets, and this thing rocks! If you use sticks or twigs broken up they have to be DRY!!, and they don't gasify as long as my wood chunks do. We even cooked 14 ears of corn on the cob the other evening. It will boil water so easily.

I bought two of these stoves and cut the bottom out of two walmart charcoal grills. I put a 14" square griddle on one of them and even made pancakes. Works very well on wood pellets.
The stainless steel handles repetitive abuse and the stove puts out the heat advertised. Lightweight, easy to handle and easy to light with starter gel. A useful piece of information is that butane lighters don't like to light when frozen, so if you plan on using this as emergency heat, get old fashion wood matches and starter gel.
A very good, versatile product. If you use it daily, get the AC power adapter or the solar charger, as you will go through a lot of batteries.

Just got the LX unit after watching a youtube video. Didn't know what to expect but this thing is really powerful for such a small unit. I first had some trouble learning how to get the thing going because I was using tinder that was not totally dry, but after I used some crumpled up newspaper for tinder, it worked great. I decided to test the heat output by boiling some water. I put about 2 cups of water and set the fan on high and I was shocked at how fast the water started to boil (definitely faster than my home gas range). I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
