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!
