The BioLite CampStove with FlexLight is a wood burning camp stove for backpackers and hikers. Gone are the days of buying fuel canisters, as this water bottle sized stove burns real wood, and you don't need to chop anything down to make it work. As you hike, gather fallen sticks, pinecones, ect, just like a bird would gather items to build its nest. Set 'er up and get that fire going, and you can cook a hot meal or just use the Thermoelectric Generator to charge your smartphone or headlamp via USB. Also included is the USB FlexLight, so you'll be able to see at night and re-charge by day. Thermoelectric Generator, whoa big words. It just means it converts the heat from the fire into usable electricity. So. Cool. When you're done, everything tucks inside of itself for compact travel to the next camp along the trail.
FEATURES of the BioLite CampStove with FlexLight
On-demand electricity provides an outlet to charge smart phones, head lamps, and LED lights on the trail using only a little bit of kindling
The smokeless flames allow you to cook over the campfire without stinging your eyes or harming Mother Earth
Provides a variety of fuel sources like wood so you can forget relying on fossil fuels. So great.
Patented core technology captures waste heat from the fire through a heat probe attached to the orange powerpack
Heat is converted into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator which powers a fan and sends surplus energy to a USB charging port
The heat created by the biomass-fueled fire generates electricity to power a fan that moves air back into the burn chamber, creating airflow, for improved combustion and a cleaner, more efficient burn. Like in science class, only better.
Has full cooking and boiling functionality, which prepares you for emergencies and is ideal for camping
The additional electricity generated by the Thermoelectric Generator is sent to the USB port and is what gives life to your electronics like your phone and LED lights
Includes USB FlexLight to help you see what you're doing
The portable and compact design is easy to pack and take along, without having to carry fuel
Boil times vary by the strength of the fire, but on average takes 4.5 minutes to boil 1 liter of water
The scalloped pot stand triangulates pots and pans for a stable cooking surface and moves flames away from power pack. Triangulate is such a fancy word.
The honeycomb heat mesh protective barrier is designed to keep the CampStove cool to the touch to avoid burning your fingers
The aluminum legs are lightweight and fold up and away for easy storage options
The FlexLight turns on or off with just the tap of your finger, and dims simply by holding it down. So easy.
The flexible neck of the FlexLight allows you to bend and move the light exactly where you need it, without having to move your power source
The FlexLight is also friendly with all USB ports, including the BioLite BaseCamp
As a low draw, the FlexLight does not require a lot of power, which comes in handy during power outages
The FlexLight is a great little tag along to light up your cooking area during low light situations, or simply as an extra source of light in your workspace

What are the options for recharging the internal battery besides a USB connection? Can burning wood in the stove be used to recharge the internal battery? Can the stove be operated when the internal battery is depleted? Thx!
Asked by: DSmit
Hiya, thanks for your question! The stove converts the heat from the fire into usable electricity. You don't need a charged battery to run the stove. The heat generated by the fire automatically recharges the lithium ion starter battery which, much like a car, kick starts the fan at the very beginning of your fire.
You will need to fully charge the battery with an external power source before you first use it and/or if the stove is unused for more than six months. Other than that, you won't need the USB cord unless you want to charge your devices.
Hope this helps!

What is the "fuel bottles" and "canisters" you refer to? If it burns sticks and such why do you need a fuel bottle? What in the picture isn't with the order (please identify)

Thanks for reaching out to Moosejaw! The BioLite camp stove includes a stuff sack, instructions, USB cord for internal battery charging, BioLite stove, USB flexlight and firelighter. The notation you see on the product's page regarding fuel not being included is a safety precaution with most of our stoves, but not all, including this one. I'll have my Bug Content team remove it, thanks for noticing!
