I have seen this kind of stove a couple years back in camping store. On the first sight, it is impressive although I am not too sure I am enjoying putting my smartphone near a gas stove. Not to mention, I typically don't connect well in most of my camping trip. it is my objective of camping, the wilderness life. Holding on the unit for a couple of minutes, my engineering mind kicks in. I wonder the efficiency and by conservation of energy, I can't imagine the charging power is as good as the other alternative. I'm happy to see this artcle and the analysis that you have done. It confirms my thought.

The stove charger might not be as good. The emergency radio, flashlight, USB with solar panel and handcrank are much more impressive device. I haven't tried the USB charging yet. Radio and flashlight works quite well. 20-30 turns of the crank, you get some good light. Radio works well under the sun.

Most products are a breed of combination - putting 2 products together effectively. The challenge to the makers is whether their products deliver customer expectations.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
