After running the Biolite for 6 months now (nearly) I can say that all is still well. The firebox is double-walled with fan-forced air circulating between the walls. The thermoelectric generator probe (copper bit in the flames) has thick insulating where it exits the orange box and the air drawn in by the fan seems to circulate inside the orange part before going into the firebox. As a final precaution if you turn off the stove when it's too hot the fan will turn back on to cool the thermoelectric unit.

So as far as I can tell the battery is very safe inside its case and all care has been taken to minimise its exposure to heat. The Biolite FAQs - http://www.biolitestove.com/faq/faqs/ claim it's easily repair and to contact them for more information.

Not entirely Rick, you could use it left handed, but you'll cover up the Forward/Backward buttons on the side of the pen.

That being said, it's probably the most ambidextrous ergo mouse I've used but that's not saying much.

Any idea if the enormously wide bezel is a design offering, or is it required for the functioning of the e-ink?

Personally, I'm waiting for a cake plate with "The cake is a lie" on it.
