Do I have one – No… Do I want one – ABSOLUTELY!!
Before we get into the CampStove let’s take a minute to look at BioLite as a company and what they are doing.
BioLite as a company has been around for a little over ten years and they actually have a great story if you take a few minutes to read about them on their website. I would challenge you to take a few minutes out of your day and read – About BioLite, A Mission Ignited, The Road Ahead and the 2018 Impact Report. If you do you will see that they aren’t just a stove, solar or lighting company.. They are a company on fire (no pun intended) to make an impact on half the planet that lives an energy poverty life. Wait.. so this company isn’t solely looking to make products and sell them? No.. they are giving back…. and giving back in a huge way.
Yes.. we will get to the CampStove in a few minutes.. Settle down…
I know that what we do here is bring previews and reviews of products whether they be good or bad products but every once in a while we run across a company that truly stands out and BioLite just happens to be one of those companies.
Let’s take a look at BioLite… All info taken straight from BioLite’s OUR STORY page. I could try and rewrite it and make it my own but why try to change something that says exactly what you want to portray. Hopefully BioLite won’t be too upset that I am using their photos and copy from their page. So here is a sampling of what I asked you to read a few paragraphs up.
Our Story – The BioLite History
BioLite is on a mission to bring Energy Everywhere™ with revolutionary products that transform the way we Cook, Charge and Light our lives off the grid. We are a team of engineers and designers, operators and analysts, story tellers and evangelists, who believe that advanced technologies, built on sustainable business practices, have the power to change the world. Our unique Parallel Innovation business model pairs the needs of families living in energy poverty with the passions of outdoor enthusiasts pushing the boundaries of life outdoors and on the go.
Our founders, Jonathan and Alec, met at Smart Design in New York City where they quickly bonded over their interest in sustainable design. Alec, frustrated that almost all efficient camping stoves required fossil fuels, had the idea of a wood-burning stove able to utilize its own thermal energy to improve combustion. Jonathan, an avid camper, quickly brought his engineering background to the table and the two began the design process. Countless nights, weekends, and prototypes later, the BioLite CampStove was born: a portable biomass stove that leveraged thermoelectrics to create a smokeless fire all while charging personal devices.

And now we stray from the awesomeness of BioLite and what they are doing for the world and take a quick look at the CampStove 2.
First.. I have to say it is one of the coolest looking stoves. Like a fire burning spaceship! So you might ask what the heck is the yellow gadget attached to that stove? That’s the cool part about this stove and makes this thing stand out from any other stove I have seen. Being that I’m not an engineer.. Actually far from it… This is what they say on the website about the CampStove 2.. Turn fire into electricity with BioLite’s award winning stove. Ok.. Here is the fancy part……. Patented combustion technology creates a vortex of smokeless flames for a portable campfire that can cook your meals and charge your gear, all at the same time… Hold up.. cook your food and charge your gear.. Are you saying you can cook a meal and charge a cell phone, battery pack, anything?? Yes my friend that’s exactly what they are saying. Where do I sign up !! This awesome little stove doesn’t run on those gas canisters but rather wood.. Just look around and grab some sticks and twigs and start it up. Truly unbelievable.. And remember what this company is doing for others.
