    Default BioLite Camp Stove. I want one.

    Some of you guys might know that I'm a Prepper. I was browsing a thread on stoves and came across this one. I already asked the wife to get this for me for my Birthday. It's 129 bucks. You use Pine cones, twigs, etc as fuel for cooking and it charges a smartphone while your out in the mountains.

    Wow! looks very handy only thing i would be kinda leery about is having heat that close to my phone. I might be over reacting a little bit but i wouldnt like my 200+ dollar phone that close to a flame!

    I have a extended cord for my Iphone. I wouldn't be worried. Check out their website. They have the Home stove too that they have tested in third world countries...Less wood...less smoke.... I was impressed.

    I like it, I think it would not only be good for camping, but a great emergency tool as well. A packable source of safe contained heat with electronic capability could be life saving if one became stranded.

    Too big, heavy and bulky for me to carry on 'pack-it-in' hunt trips.
    And not alot of heat generated for the amount of fuel - plus if your out in the rain or snow - it's gonna be really hard to get it going.
    Great idea they have for sure.!!!

    I built one of these and it works really well and weighs almost nothing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93Gq_nxZmXw
    Soon as I empty out my next can of nasty AXE I'm going to make a second one...

    And I pack either just a cheap AA battery powered cell phone quick charger, that you can pick up anywhere, or one of these

    that I use on extended trips.

    (after watching the video I find it really odd that these people living out in the African bush country have to cook over open fires but
    own iphones...)
