Customer opinions: this is how the CampStove performs with users

I only ever introduce you to products that I either found very good in the test myself, or for which I was able to research very good customer opinions. This is also the case with BioLite Camp Stove arrived: here the users seem to be quite satisfied:

"I didn't really believe the statement "It only takes 4,5 minutes to boil 1 liter of water", but I ordered the stove and the Biolite jug anyway because I thought 10 minutes would still be a good value. First test with a handful of spruce wood: I was really surprised - after just five minutes the water (1 liter!) started to boil. [...] The power generator actually delivered electricity after just a few minutes. This stove fascinates me, it is not cheap, but worth the money!“(5 star rating on Amazon)
