If you RTFM this unit works exactly as described, first and foremost you are advised to charge the unit for at least 6 hours before its first use (I did not do this, YMMV).

The power ouput is between 2w and 4w, so what does this mean?

It means your Smartphones which mostly required 5V @1A (5w) will NOT directly charge from this unit (However you can charge a battery pack and then use the pack to charge your phone).

Anything which consumes 0w-2w will continuously charge, anything 2w-4w will “interval charge” which means the unit will stop charging the device until sufficient internal charge is generated and then it will once again charge the device.

This is highly dependent on the amount of heat being produced, so as fuel level dwindle so will the amount of power you will receive.

Here’s the results form my test on receipt on the unit.

1.5L / 6 Cups Cold (~ 4c / 39f) into the Biolite ketlle pot, and attached 22,400 mAh EC Powerbank

As the batterypack charges the fan is slowed, so not charging the device will of course yield faster boiling.

The full kettle reached a rolling boil in 20m03s; having to add additional fuel 4 times. The fan is a good indicator of fuel level, once the fuel level drops the unit will stop charging the pack and the fan will spin faster.

Soot production is low, even lower if you do not cover the chamber until the flames have receded, nothing a little effort will not clean off.

In conclusion, so long as the heat was sufficient based on fuel the batter pack would charge continually in my albeit brief testing.

4.33v @ 0.86A (3.72W)
20m03s 1.5L / 6 cups 5C/39f to rolling boil.

Very little soot and very little ash.

Well I recieved this stove last week. After a lot of research and YouTube viewings i decided to take the plunge(its not cheap!!)!
As someone who likes gadgets and likes wild camping even more, this really appealed to me. Right off the bat the stove is well made and actually attractive. I conditioned the battery via mains as per instructions. The following day i made a fire. It smoked a fair amount while the wood was catching but once it started flaming and the fan kicks in there's very little smoke and it burns incredibly hot. Once the green LED came on i plugged my iPhone 4S into the stove and it charged no problem. I am yet to test on my ipad3 but I'm sure it'll work!

Overall i am happy with this stove, build quality and effectiveness. I will be doing a 4 day long camp trip on dartmoor over Easter so will update if anything significant happens. Happy camping!

Things to like (and this is a gadget that scores highly):
Works really well - burns wood cleanly and hot, the only smoke is when you're lighting it. That said, it needs a plentiful supply of DRY twigs and wood - I wouldn't like to have to rely on stuff scavenged from the average damp UK campsite. For easy lighting I brought a bag with wood planings from the workshop floor for kindling (although the eco-firelighters supplied with the unit are fine) and a small sack of dry sticks. By way of testing its capabilities we cooked a large (3.5l) pan of pasta for 5 people - it brought it to the boil surprisingly quickly but it was essential to keep lifting the pan every 4 minutes to check on the fire and keep feeding in wood.
It packs down into a neat package - the fan/battery/charging unit fits inside the fire chamber when not in use, and it's surprisingly light. A lot of thought has gone into it and it seems well made.
Profits from sales apparently go towards funding a larger version for the developing world - the aim is to reduce pollution and mortality associated with traditional wood-burning stoves, and provide a way of charging mobile phones for those off-grid, so morally seems to be a "good company" (Amazon take note!). If they get that to market it would be great for family campers too and I'd be first in line.
No more guilty feelings about hydrocarbon use (OK, so you're probably driving to the campsite, but hey). No more empty gas canisters to dispose of.
We got plenty of curious glances from fellow campers (always ones to ogle other people's gear!) - it's great for gadget freaks.

If you love elegant solutions you'll love the Biolite stove. A neat 1kg camp stove to carry everywhere. It lights quickly, and efficiently burns waste wood to boil water in no time at all, cook your food, or keep you warm. And to top it all, it even charges your phone, which is in many ways the universal modern survival tool if only the battery charge lasted long enough. Well, now it can. Enjoy your new wood-powered iPhone/GPS. We are!

I brought this stove, as a gift,
I run a crew of 11 men, putting stages up at festivals, one event we attended didn't have catering, so I cooked for 11 men 3 meals a day plus teas for a week on my bio light, plus chagered phones, Brilliant brilliant brilliant!!! I'm now just about to buy the kettle, which ingenuously fits the stove inside
