I'm a self described backpacking stove NUT. I buy more camp kitchen gear than I can handle. (((Maybe I'll start a new thread for outdoor gear))) Anyway, I've considered buying the BioLite many times. I stare at it every time I go to this one outdoor store, but I can't bring myself to make the purchase. It's so cool and has a ton of accessories, but at just a hair above 2lbs, it's not practical for me to take into the backcountry.

They are very cool, but probably better served for car camping type trips than backpacking or minimalist type camping. Still, since you don't have to carry fuel, it might be a nice addition to a BOB if you have extra room. If you want something like this simply to charge electronics, I would suggest a good solar charger instead. You can get a 14W Anker solar charger for about half the price of the BioLite stove.
