Anybody had a Biolite for a few years?

    Every so often I take a look at the Biolite stove and I'm sorely tempted. I've never gone for it though, and my main concern is the short life of things with batteries. Powerbanks, phones etc all suffer from loss of charge retention over time. I would be buying the Biolite in case I need it in the future, mainly as a handy source of power for phones and torches in an emergency. There's no point getting it if it doesn't have much of a future! I have lots of other options for off-grid cooking so that's not such a big consideration.

    Can anybody who has had and used a biolite for a few years vouch for it?
