It’s impossible to describe the BioLite CampStove without sounding like a lunatic, but you can actually find some sticks just laying on the ground, toss them into the stove and light them on fire at the push of a button, and then charge your phone with a USB port that’s powered by the heat of the flame. It’s completely insane, and yet it works.
Of course, this also works as a regular old camp stove, and at full power it can boil a liter of water in under five minutes. It also weighs two pounds, and is about the size of a large water bottle, so it won’t take up too much space in your camping bag. Get it for an all-time low $79 with promo code GOODFIRE, for a limited time.
Shane looked at the CampStove 2 for Gear, and while that model includes a built-in battery pack, a camp light, and a few other enhancements, I don’t think any of them are worth the price premium during this promotion.
