    Interesting. If it works so well I wonder why they didn't talk about how fast it will boil water and do some comparisons to their competition? I also wonder how you light it. If the wood is wet and there is no special lighting method then we are taking a jump back in time and are going to be carrying a bunch of lighting paraphernalia just to get the thing going.

    Neat concept I guess, I just got real tired of reading all of the green weenie environmental propaganda on every page of their site. And unfortunately the government endorsed their company so in no time they will be front page news, talking about the millions in tax payer dollars they received while still going bankrupt! :D

    I'm with Scot. Interesting product. Too much mush brained propoganda.

    I had a funny conversation with a scientist recently. I'm still chuckling over one of his comments, "Turns out the sun's in charge of the temperature of the earth, not your tailpipe".....

    I'm gonna bite.

    For my needs the USB charger carries more value than cooking.

    It'll be jetboil for serious stuff.
