Today I did a quick boil test with my BioLite camp stove. I also weighed it because a lot of people think this thing weighs a ton for some reason, when it is actually comparable to some lighter stoves when you add the weight of the fuel that you will have to carry along with them. The BioLite weighs in at just over 2 pounds.
One small drawback to this stove is you can’t boil water with it in a small cup as you can see using a small cup will only snuff out the fire.
So for this test I am going to use the GSI Ketalist with 32 ounces of water and I will be running the fan on high and it’s about 65 degrees out today.
This stove on high really consumes some fuel and burns pretty hot.
I had a rolling boil in just under 5 minutes at 4 minutes and 55 seconds, not too bad for 32 ounces of water.
