Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid! I received the stove for Christmas. Having seen it in a store I knew what to expect but was still pleasantly surprised by the build quality and robustness if the beastie. I immediately took it outside to break it in. The battery was 1/2 charged when I started and during my testing it charged up to 100% in about an hour. The stove works exactly as advertised. Is well designed and well built. Once you figure out how much fuel to put in and the best sizes for a hot flame it keeps the flame strength at maximum with fan setting on one or two. The led’s on the battery showing flame strength and battery level are extremely handy. Would definitely recommend this stove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The stove is very easy to use. I love it! I got some pellets from the hardware store and they work great! I'm a car camper (so weight isn't an issue) and wanted something small and quick to heat water for tea/coffee and dehydrated meals. The light is useful and the power port is nice to have. I also have the kettle pot and coffee press though i haven't used the press (instant coffee is easier :) I'm really happy I got this stove!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery not holding charge I do not recommend this product. Limited life expectancy (a few years only) cause once the battery does not hold charge anymore the product becomes useless. There is no way to change the battery. Really disapointed in this product. What a waste to just throw the product after a few years just because the battery can not be changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Cool! I purchased the Biolite Campstove 2 both as a functional cook stove and secondarily as an emergency power source while leading guided trips both by canoe and by snowmobile in the Maine North Woods. Because I primarily use these modes of transportation—rather than backpacking, for instance—weight is not a factor for me, and I can afford to carry something that may be slightly heavier. As a professional guide, this mode of cooking also has a visual “coolness” factor that a more traditional propane (or white gas) stove does not have: cooking over an open flame with wood fuel is kind of like having a tiny bonfire inside of a metal can—another method of cooking that I’ve used in the past—with the added benefit of maintaining a power bank. Coolness IS a part of the job. The Campstove 2 works as promised. It burns fuel at a hot enough temperature to adequately cook food. It also uses that heat to produce electricity that is stored in its own power bank. It does have some limitations—it has only one burner, and the generating power is weaker than I would prefer, but who carries a 50-mile extension cord wherever they go? These were known issues before purchase, and it would be unfair of me to complain about limitations that I understood beforehand. All in all, this is a good product that works as described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Campstove Original I got this stove after the first batch came out. So mine is the second run. Been using this for light use. Original Campstove gets charged by usb twice now; has worked flawlessly. I may have smelled some dielectric material when I used it for two hours as a heat source but still ticking and charging my devices. It's not a fast charger but the new stove is suppose to be better with the current pushing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, hungry little beast So this is gonna be my first impression review of the BioLite Campstove II. Being it's a first impression review, is not gonna be all inclusive, and my test was under best conditions, not average. I'll do more tests later on, in the field. So, upon opening, it was stored with the orange piece inside the burn canister. It comes with a stuff bag, an Android style usb cable, and a light. The light I consider to be useless. When I first put it together, the battery was sitting at 50%. The manual tells you to fully charge before use so that you can immediately be able to charge whatever device. For my testing, I was curious to see how long it took to charge, so I didn't. Getting it started was easy, and within a few moments of getting fire, the fan automatically turned on. You have 4 can speeds to adjust as necessary. Initially, it does smoke, and bad. But once the fire is going, no more smoke! You do have to babysit it and keep feeding it. I found having pieces a little longer sticking out the top resting on the probe that sticks inside the burn canister helps the probe be hot enough to create the most power. It immediately began charging the onboard battery. So while the battery was charging, I did test number 2, the water boil. It is advertised as being able to boil a liter in 4 ½ minutes. It took 8 minutes to boil almost 750ml. It could have taken less, but I had to keep pulling the water off to add wood. For the battery to get fully charged from right at 50% took right at an hour, which is impressive. Allot of the complaints I read was it took forever to charge the onboard battery. However, at taking an hour to go from 50% to 100% I consider to be pretty good, considering if you plug your phone up at 50% it takes about the same amount of time to charge. How many times can I charge my phone off this battery, that is yet to be determined. My thoughts on this, I bought it so I could indefinitely keep my VHF radio charged in the field with no access to power. Well this do it? I do believe so. More testing is necessary. Can you boil water or cook on it? Yes, but with it's challenges. At a little over 2 pounds, is it worth it to carry in your bag? That's entirely up to you. I think so as at first impression it seems much more efficient than solar as solar takes much more time to charge and is dependent on good weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I really like the CS2. Most of my backpacking trips are a 8 to 10 days longs. When I took my white gas stove and pot the starting weight was about 3.8lbs and by the end the 2.8lbs. The nice thing about the CB2 is it is always about 3lbs. The CB is the primary stove so one of the other members brings their jetboil and two small cans of fuel. as we use it if it has rained or for a quick cup of tea. But there is a few things to consider. The CB2 is very needy when all you have is pine for fuel. It burns up quick compared to hard wood. This means that CB2 fills up with ash much quicker. The other issue is the weight, I wish that Biolite would provide an optional titanium version for the kettle and the burn chamber. Also wish they create an adaptor for the burn chamber so you can use a pot or create an their own pot for the CB2. And make it all out of titanium. My primary way to start the CB2 is by putting an inch squeeze of fire paste in a pine cone. I do care fire sticks but reserve then for damp wood. I also found that a cheap cigar lighter works great as it is like a small blow torch to get the wood going. I would have given 5 stars but for the weight as an all titanium version would be nice. The compact design is very nice. Important note: make sure you bring multiple different charging cables. Your friends will like you for it.
