User Review: Snow Peak LiteMax Titanium
Source: bought it new
Very light, very small, so far very durable. It lights reliably, even in windy conditions. I have used it up to an altitude of about 11,000 feet with no issues. On cold mornings it's a little slower to get going. In wind, you definitely have to shelter it or make a wind screen (which I have not done).
- Light weight
- Slightly susceptible to wind
I bought this about two years ago. It's my first canister stove after many years of using an MSR Whisperlite.
Set up and ignition are a breeze. Flame control is ok - I can simmer ok but it's not great. I wouldn't try to make anything touchy.
Boil time in good conditions was...I dunno...I didn't time it. i was not disappointed though. Noticeably slower in windy conditions (duh).
With a large canister I can go one night for two of us, but that's two dehydrated meals, two cups of tea, hot cereal, and four (!) cups of coffee. And there's still fuel left, probably enough for another dinner.
It's a little wobbly so you have to be careful.
Bottom line, it's the lightest, smallest canister out there (that I know of) and very reliable. Perfect for mild conditions, and good enough at high altitude. I'd use it again at high altitude.
