    EDIT: Here is the whole thing transplanted from TW:

    I finally heard back from the BioLite Sales Manager & have a much better deal with far fewer hoops, immediate savings & no giving money to REI which is trying to get 4x4/OHVs banned from Federal properties.

    So here is the new & improved deal:

    Link heavy, but all the links work, send me a PM if they don't.

    I found this really neat camp stove that kills several birds with one stone. The BioLite CampStove Bundle allows you to cook w/o smoke due to forced air, fire chamber (think incinerator). Heat output is 13,000 BTU, about the same as the JetBoil. A warming open flame that is considered a campstove by the USFS & BLM during open fire bans. Uses kindling sized sticks, pinecones or even smoker woodchips or chunks (Mesquite, Hickory, fruitwood, etc.) for fuel. Most importantly to me is that there's no 1lb. propane "grenades" to carry everywhere. On top of everything else, it converts some of the waste heat using a thermo-electric generator to create 2-4w/5VDC electrical output for charging anything small via USB.

    Over the last couple of weeks I tried contacting the company via email & eventually I found their phone number. Finally, I heard back on Friday 26FEB16 from the Sales Manager at their headquarters in NYC.

    The Bundle includes:
    CampStove & stuff sack. (video)
    Grill, Grill travel covers, the large one can be used as a plate or cutting board. (video)
    KettlePot, the small bowl in the picture nests in bottom of KettlePot. (video)
    & a touch control dimmable USB LED light.
    All metal construction is laser welded stainless steel.



    Like anything I buy, I thoroughly vett it first. Rather than post all the links to the reviews, I'll just post the search I used. I've read every article on the 1st page & most of the 2nd. The majority of the complaints in the articles were that it stove & stove combo were too heavy for backpacking. At 5-7lbs, i would probably agree. The rest were mostly those who didn't read the instructions or misunderstood them. But even among these complaints, they said it either would be or is great for car camping, which basically describes what we do here on TW. (Glamping?)

    But wait there's more! The new & improved deal just got better!
    There has been enough interest in the BaseCamp Stove model that it will get a similar discount. BaseCamp Stove video

    I told him a little about TW & how the group buys I've been in before were arranged. Just like all the other Group Buys here on TW, he has a few reasonable requirements of which we're all familiar with:

    1. You need to send me a PM for the discount/pricing details. (they're both a really good deal) :yay:
    a. Shipping is free on any BioLite purchase over $75, so shipping is not a concern.
    2. Group buy minimum order is 20 CampStove Bundles. (I was expecting it to take a month to fill the minimum, not 6 days. :eek: )
    3. Pricing on this special offer remains private & is not to be advertised publicly.
    4. These are not to be resold on Amazon or eBay.
