Vargo titanium alcohol stove

Sorry if this is not news to anyone else, just stumbled upon it while reading VeloOrange's blog. Apparently the stove has been around since 2005, news to me. Looking for reviews took me to Zen Alcohol Stoves, great spot for ultralighters looking for DYI spirit stoves

I've got one of those. It works.  And it's titanium.

I have a Vargo in my collection.

It is very small and light.  It can be difficult to light, and the trick is overfill it and then dribble some fuel on the top prior to lighting.

If all you want to do is boil a liter or less of water then it is a fine choice.  If you are trying to do more than that, the challenge is that you need to wait for it to cool in order to refill and relight.  You can make it work, but there are other stoves that would be less work to use in this capacity.

I am saving my Vargo for my emergency survival kit.
