Biolite Rechargeable Wood Burning Stove - Review

Today Luke is reviewing the Biolite Rechargeable Wood Burning Stove.  Kick back folks, this will take a while.


Link :

MSRP $99.95 -

Four fan speeds to control the flame size, from rapid boil to campfire feel

In 2012 a company called Biolite launched a product called the camp stove which was a wood burning stove each produced electricity so you could essentially charge your phone through the burning of wood.

This isn’t a replacement for the original stove as it doesn’t generation electricity.  What this stove allows you to do is control the amount of heat that the stove produces and it does this through the fan which you can control the speed of.

Likes :
Burns wood fuel completely to ash.
Good built Quality.
Easy to Clean.

Dislikes :
Burns wood very quickly requiring constant wood replenishment
Not very good for cooking, boiling water, etc.
Not good for backpacking.
Not very good for car camping either.
Can create a lot of smoke.
Chore to continue to feed fuel to.
Large size.

There are other stoves out there that work better for less.
