Improvements and bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
I’ve contacted Biolite about their app showing only 18-36 mins remaining while the actual lantern shows it’s fully charged. They said they are aware of it and hope to fix it on their next app update. well it’s been 11 months since their last update. Also they said to trust the unit leds to show how much power is left. well I drained and fully charged it 3 times so far and the unit only gives me only 4 hours on high and nowhere near 7.5 hours as advertised on their website and or packaging. They also removed the bpm feature that used to sync with your music. btw I’ve tested two new units so far. the first one only gave me 3 hours of light on high. tech support answers once a week if you’re lucky. so not much help there. It’s a nicely put together lamp with nice features. just wished the co spent a little more time fixing the bugs. almost a year later and no updates to their app? ridiculous.
Battery Indicator Does Not Work
I’ve had the Base Camp Lantern XL for 5 years and use it sparingly. The lamp works ok, but the app is supposed to tell you how much life is left on the battery charge and it does not even come close to how much the lantern says it does. This wasn’t always the case… when it was brand new it worked. It’d be nice if BioLite would update the app or offer a fix but it looks like they have a habit of abandoning their products and discontinuing support for them.
Works perfectly with FirePit
Not sure why there are so many negative reviews, as this worked perfectly for me with the FirePit and iPhone 11 Pro. One time setup for Bluetooth connectivity and it’s worked flawlessly ever since. Connects right away!
One suggestion for the developers if they read reviews: please make the UI for the fan speed slider a bit more user friendly. It’s sometimes hard to “grab” the slider, so perhaps you can just expand the touch zone? Something to think about!
