A friend of mine bought a bio lite, I have used it a few times and the charging feature works well. For a while, I noticed after a while the ash starts to clog the vents that are used to feed the fire. Boiling water on it wasn't the easiest thing to do I had to lift the pot off a few times to add more fuel, which increased the boil time significantly. Also all the fuel you use has to be a certain size other wise you can't place anything on the cooking surface.

The one real benefit I can think of is since it is a contained fire on an elevated surface, i beleive you could use it during a fire ban.
