This makes for happier eating while camping, but I don't need two of the same stoves. There was a good thread about biomass stoves a few months back, this is a bit outside the norm as you can just load kindling and somewhat larger pieces in to burn. Priced as usual to beat even Amazon.
Although this will keep your electronics going, you have my permission to leave all electronics in the vehicle, or barter the charging so the kids get to do some of the cooking. Who knows, they may enjoy it and put the phone away on their own!


BioLite BaseCamp is a complete off-grid cooking and energy solution for groups, powered by wood. Using only fallen branches or small pieces of firewood, you can make wood-fired meals and charge your devices all at the same time. It's a smart alternative to fossil-fueled stoves, creating an elevated cooking fire that burns smarter than any campfire you're used to. BaseCamp is excellent for camping, backyard or power outages. What is really special about this portable camping grill is BioLite's patented core technology which captures waste heat from the fire through a heat probe attached to the orange powerpack. This heat is converted into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator. This powers a fan sending surplus electricity to a USB charging port. Finally, the internal fan forces air back into the burn chamber, dramatically improving combustion and creating a cleaner, more efficient burn.
