The best camping innovation since the tent.
The best idea to hit camping in a long time just got even better. An upgrade over the original CampStove, the BioLite CampStove2 boasts 50% more power, an integrated battery, and an updated LED dashboard for improved control and feedback. The CampStove 2 is a wood-powered stove that not only cooks food and boils water using sticks and twigs foraged from the forest floor, but it also turns the heat into usable electricity that powers your smartphone, headlamp, and other portable devices while you cook. Plus, BioLite threw in an adjustable FlexLight so you can see what you're cooking after sundown.
Internal fan jets improve combustion and efficiency, and four settings allow you to control the flames. If you're not sure how hot your fire is, LED readouts show you fire strength, power output, and fan speed settings. Like the original, it sports a USB output that can be used to charge devices while the fire is burning. The CampStove 2 is also equipped with a built-in battery that allows you to store electricity and charge devices later when the fire isn't going.
Like the original, the CampStove 2 accommodates the BioLite KettlePot or Grill so you can cook everything from pasta to pork chops while juicing up your phone and jamming out to tunes all at the same time. And when it's time to pack up camp, the nesting design and lightweight construction make it easy to haul down the trail.

Great Alternative Cooking Option
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Tested this out once on a picnic. Easy to set up and light, this thing can charge your electronics and cook your food at the same time. I charged it a few weeks before using it and it still put out plenty of power.
You can cook it all
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
very versatile and well made. Will last many more trips to come.
A lot of Fun
This stove has exceeded expectations for me and has so much going for it. It's a little heavy for backpacking, but you can make it work. The power output is better than I had hoped. I brought 1L of water to a boil in less than 5min on my first use. Highly recommended.
Bringing the 21st century to camping
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of a camp stove meant to charge electronics, aren't we camping to escape electronics?! I have been pleasantly surprised by this little stove and the convenience it provides. I have your typical two burner propane stove that I use regularly and I have way too many half empty green propane tanks floating around. The Camp Stove 2 is a great way to rid yourself of the waste associated with propane stoves. I use the small branches and wood chips found around camp site to fuel the Biolite stove because they fit inside well and there's a never ending supply of them around most fire pits. The fan feature takes some figuring out but after one or two uses you will have it dialed. The display lights on the stove give clear feedback on stove temp, battery and fan strength while the single button controls keep things user friendly. I recently cooked bacon for BLTs at camp and a small skillet fits right on top of the stove no problem, just be sure you have it balanced well. The included LED light allows the user to see what's going on and it's never going to run out of battery while the stove is in use. The stove packs down relatively small but because there is a rechargeable battery built in, it is not meant to be an ultra light option. Sometimes I don't need the bulky two burner for quick trips and this will be my go-to stove for one pot/pan cooking and charging around camp.

Wood Fuel is Better Fuel
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Hi Guys - I'm Jonathan from BioLite. Five years of user feedback taught us a few things about our CampStove 1, and we upgraded the CampStove 2 with you in mind. The new CampStove has 4 main upgraded features:
1. An onboard, 2600 mAh battery. Now, the fire charges a battery, and you can use the power pack to charge up your phones, camera, or GPS even when you're not cooking. This also allows for a more efficient charge, so you're not relying on flame temperature to dictate how fast your phone charges.
2. 4 fan speeds so you have more control of your fire - Simmer on Low, Boil on High, and a couple "MED" settings for an overall better cooking experience
3. More outbound power - Now 3 watts of outbound power for faster charging.
3. Real Time LED Feedback so you can monitor flame temperature, fan speed, and battery life.
Even with all these upgrades, we kept the weight the same (2.06 lbs), and made sure that the CampStove 2 is backwards compatible, so it still fits with our accessories, the Portable Grill and KettlePot.
Don't worry about running out of Gas again, and shed weight/space as hike - as long as their is dry wood, you've got fuel to cook and power your phone.
Please give us your feedback and let us know how we did!
