Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

Summary

Great lightweight canister stove.

Pros

  • Fast
  • Easy
  • Light
  • Compact

Cons

  • Have to use canisters
  • 2 oz more than the lightest canister stoves

Great all around stove for light backpacking. It's easy to use, fairly fast and packs nicely. The piezo lighter is very convenient and lights with the first click. It boils 1 quart of water in 3 minutes on high.  This original TechnoTrail has the 3 pot supports and folds up compactly inside my MSR alpine pot for storage (there is a 'TechnoTrail II' with a 4th support out there but was discontinued). It has a good flame disbursement (i.e. not straight up and not way out to the side, but just right).  I recommend this original to everyone.

Sweet little stove! I used it this past weekend for an overnight trip on the AT.

The piezo lighter is great and it lit on the first push every time. It boiled about 1 1/2 liters of water in about 5 minutes and that was at about 1/2-3/4 flame.

It cools down very quickly and easily packs inside my Brunton Vapor cookset.

I'm looking forward to a more intense testing of it when I get to go for extended periods of time, but overall I'm extremely pleased with it.

Great stove for backpacking. It's lightweight and it packs up really small. It's very fuel efficient. The self lighter feature is really handy. I suggest you buy the fuel canister leg stand thing cause it can be a little unstable without it.

A very compact, lightweight, reliable stove-5 yrs and counting. Fits into my titanium pot. Easy to assemble, no maintenance. Auto-ignite a great feature. Solidly constructed, no plastic parts. Aluminum/stainless.

Cool stove, works great. Really fuel efficient. I'm only about 1/2 way through my first fuel canister and I've used like 10 times. Super light and compact. A little slow at boiling water, but not too bad.
