    If it weighs 5 kilos, those cups and the alcohol bottle must be huge...

    Just over 700 grams.
    In the picture it has still some bio-ethanol in the tank.

    Regarding the spec-ed output, I don't think it comes close 3kW.

    No boil test yet, but I think it could compete with a Svea 123R, Optimus 8R/99 or Primus 71.
    It has more heat output than a Trangia alcohol burner.

    After my initial posts I did some boil tests, 1 liter of tap water in a aluminum camping cooking pot showed 11-12 minutes to get the water to boil. Inside, no windshield around the pot and no lid.
    Adding a foldable windshield and a lid improved the boiltime somewhat but not spectacularly.
    I used it once in the field and did take quite some time get the water boiling.

    In a separate test I put it side by side with my Trangia 25 and this stove can’t beat the Trangia in my opinion.

    If I recollect correctly it was just over 30 Euro.

    I refuse to support Chinese world domination . Sorry but that's what it is and who I am . I have nothing against Chinese citizens but Communism / Socialists political stance. Thank you.

    Hi @Cpt.Cook , I understand your feelings, wished there were alternatives! Problem is, we don't want to pay more for locally made goods so everything that is not to expensive to transport is nowadays being made in China. I've said this before, I have bought knives via Aliexpress, some clearly stating "made in USA" but cheaply made in the PRC. Just naming a couple, I've bought Coldsteel, Buck, Winchester and other "American" made knives from them. It's economics! And, communist controlled capitalist economic system.(And, if you buy/bought solar panels, chances are they were made by Oeygoer slave labourers!)

    Welcome to CCS. An international community of stove collectors.
    Best to ignore what you don't support. We have Chinese members here, too.
