i’m surprised there were no comments on this.
It appeals to me too in a ‘don’t know how or when I’d use it’ sort of way. I like the idea of setting fire to things and being green at the same time though.
On a serious note, if one can generate sufficient electricity from this small camping stove to charge a phone, GPS, etc could the same not be achieved using similar technology attached to a domestic solid fuel stove or room heater? Just curious.Posted 5 years ago
I’ve got one and only had a couple of test fires with it in the garden and it seems pretty good. Probably better as a fan assisted stove rather than a charger but it did put some juice into my ipod.
The only initial problem I had with it is it does go through fuel when the fan is on high. I am going to experiment with differing types of sticks etc to see what works best. It’s certainly well made and pretty sturdy though. Quite a nice bit of kit. Packs down well and has a handy little bag to carry it in.Posted 5 years ago
quite possibly… I bought it because a) I like what the company stand for in terms of what they are trying to do with their large stoves in poorer countries and b) I thought it handy to put some juice into phone etc whilst camping overnight.
I have yet to try it out on an overnight camp though so can’t really comment on how good it is/isn’t.Posted 5 years agotheblackmountMember
Certainly not for biking.
Looks to be around 5 times the size of my bivvying solution and that includes cookware:
So, bulky, heavy, expensive, needs a fuel source (Finding dry sticks in the middle of a Scottish winter? In fact just finding any sticks could be an issue:-)
And charging phones etc is of no interest so that trump card is of no use to me personally.Posted 5 years agowillardMember
Carrying on with the “good things” part of their ethos…
Yes it’s promotional for them, but given that a lot of people were without power…Posted 5 years agoAngus WellsSubscriber
Agreed its too big for a bivi stove but I suspect it’s aimed more at those using a base camp. In fact, it is probably more of a technology demonstrator for their home stoves that seem to have an application in the developing world – that may be where the real market is.
I like the idea.Posted 5 years ago
