      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

BioLite Stove w/ USB Charger

Recommended Posts

Just got mine today, gonna fire it up tomorrow and see what it can do.


First impressions are that its moderately durable, time will tell, comes with starter sticks (wax and sawdust) only 6 included so might be for "adverse" situations.

That is awesome, but 2 pounds! Yikes!

I think the idea is one of the coolest things I have ever seen though.

I agree with tyson. I think if I was going to do a month hike with no source of power, I may consider it. I am not sure I would need my phone charged if I was in the woods for 30 days since I would be away from a cell tower surely. But, it does open up options regarding my delorme gps... Great idea. Why can't I get one for my house?

I believe that the sale of the camping stoves is helping fund the home version designed optimally for 3rd world communities. (Somalia, Uganda, Chad, and Detroit).

I would drop them an email perhaps and see what they say.

Been messing with mine, nothing scientific but it will boil a small pot of water (pint+) in about 4 minutes and that was with poor fuel (green twigs and less than they recommend).

Green/wet fuel makes an awesome wall of smoke though :)

A small fan, powered by the battery helps the fire get going and adjusts its intensity as needed during the cooking process.

More data as I get it, but as it stands, I love the stove.

A definite step in the correct direction.
