The BioLite BaseCamp is a wood burning cook stove for large groups. Whether you're camping with the family or just spending a day at the beach, the Base Camp steps in to boil a pot of water, grill up some burgers and dogs, and even charge up your sister's smartphone so she can continue playing DJ into the night. Gather your biomass (twigs, firewood, other similar solids) and fire it up and the heat will get the grill going while also converting the heat into electricity, powering an internal fan that sends it straight to a USB port. The little dashboard lets you know how strong your fire is and the amount of power generated. Grilling at night? No problem, with the included FlexLight you can watch your late-night cravings bring on a nice char.
FEATURES of the BioLite BaseCamp
Comes with a flexible USB light so you can keep an eye on your cooking while charging your phone
Powered by wood, which is an awesome alternative to charcoal or propane
The BioLite core technology takes waste heat from the fire via the heat probe attached to the orange power pack and converts it into usable electricity with the thermoelectric generator. So smart.
The air is then forced back into the burn chamber by an internal fan that considerably improves combustion while making the burn cleaner and more efficient
Bucket-style handle for easy grab and go carry options
Grill size is designed to hold up to 8 burgers, ideal for group campouts
The powerpack provides 5 watts of output to charge your electronics
The fuel rack keeps fuel stable up to 20"
Comes with a grill lever which allows you to choose the size of the flames you need, dependent on what you're making
The legs fold, great for adjusting the cooking height dependent on your needs, as well as folding when around sensitive surfaces. I don't know what that means.
Ability to watch your fire and power thanks to the smart LED dashboard
The burn chamber gives powerful combustion and super simple refueling with the side entry
The ash tray helps you keep the cooking site clean
Please note that stoves DO NOT include any fuel bottles or canisters pictured. Sorry about everything and please don't hate us.

Yummy and Easy, does it get any better?I like the product and think it works well. The only bad thing I have to say is they could have completed the tack welding a little better. No worries other than that.
