In October of 2015, the National Preppers and Survivalist (NPS) Expo in Louisville, Kentucky, showcased some of the most useful, innovative and essential gear in the survivalist world. Designed to be a one-stop shop for the emergency preparedness industry, the traveling NPS Expo was a big hit with vendors and attendees alike. From water purifiers to personal protection equipment, here are several items that made a big impression.

    So the BioLite stove, which generates electricity, is $130. The Minuteman Rocket Stove which uses the same principles but DOES NOT generate electricity is $160.

    I think the choice is pretty straightforward. BioLite has more going for it than a souped-up ammo can.

  • Lanedog

    The Minuteman is a much larger and also insulated stove. It generates much more cooking power than the BioLite. If you want to cook for a family or more than one person the Minuteman Stove is the ticket. You can even use your Dutch oven on it. I have a Minuteman and can not say enough good about it. I’ll charge my phone with a solar panel.
