Charging an iPhone using the Biolite

Hi
There is a nifty new gadget that is a portable wood fired oven that produces electrical energy to charge things via a USB. The product is called Biolite.

Their claim is that it can produced about 5V/2-4W. And that a 20 minute charge is enough for a 60 minute phone call.

Any ideas what % of battery life that equates to if charged from say 1%.

Interesting gadget. Seems to meet typical usb port specs. A good guess is about 1% per minute charge rate.

To speed it up just throw some more wood on the fire.....
