Anyone tried this?

Looking to see if anyone of you may have tried this product for real 'does it really work' reviews.

Looks kinda kewl, I'l wait for more reviews though before I decide to purchase. Interested to see how long it actually lasts, how many times you can burn fuel in it to create charges. Looks like it's made pretty good, but I'll wait for more discussion.

Interesting you should bring this up. Was researching the product just last week. First, I'm not even sure you can purchase same at this time. Secondly, if battery life is an issue just bring another battery. Thirdly, I'd make darned sure the connector(s) are really compatable with your phone/what-ever.

Personally, I'd just run down a roll up solar cell pad if recharging is an issue.

Looks very neat. Only set back might be when raining and all wood is wet. But since it uses such a small amount it might be possible to find enough dry to fuel it.

If recharging batteries (including your cell or CB) out in the boonies is important, this is a product that you should consider: Amazon.com: Goal Zero 19010 Guide 10 Plus Small Adventure Kit: Automotive

As for the camp stove one, interesting idea, but bring your own wood. Buy a bag of smoker wood chips (hard woods) and a small packet of fire starters. Save for the electronic's bit this this is a very small Kelly Kettle in design. Those have been around since WW1.

Very neat - just read through the link. This went on my list for Santa.

I was considering the propane campfires like the Little Red Campfire or Campfire in a Can because of the Emerald Ash Borer issues for when we just want the ambiance of a fire. This seems like a better solution to use the twigs around the campsite.

I like the bonus of the USB charger as well as the ability to cook on top if needed.
