Well everyone covers the camping need, we know it is super lightweight. However, I had a 9 hour road trip with my wife and 5 month en route to an NFL game and using it from the trunk to warm some water for her baby formula was over the top convienient. I am assuming the next power outage this will be awesome for some hot choclate or a cup of coffee. Even a space heater in the closet. This item is must own.
