I have an original BioLite stove and I really feel the need to caution people in regards to it. My experience is that it is exceptionally loud, provides very little electrical power output, utilizes an exceptionally large amount of fuel, has short burn times on a loading and is not pack friendly. To be clear, I purchased mine with the intent to replace my MSR DragonFly for motorcycle camping trips on my R1200GS. The DragonFly is a phenomenal stove with a wide range of fuels it can effectively burn. However it is incredibly loud when in operation. The Biolite is nearly as loud with very little benefit on any other front. Overall I regard it as one of my worst purchases in terms of functional equipment. I am sad to say that as I truly like the idea of what the company is trying to do for others in the world. Even having bought it on sale my money would have been better spent elsewhere.
