A great gadget that could potoentially save a lot of money with regular use.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Will save money in the long term
  • Makes use of cartridges that may not have otherwise been used.

Cons

  • Adds weight and bulk
  • The rubber ring holding the adaptor in place perished.

This is a great idea that could potentially save a lot of money. I scour car boots for unwanted gas cartridges that need to be pierced instead of screwing the stove into a thread. I can pick them up for peanuts. It adds weight and bulk, but it is worth it for the savings I make as it becomes much cheaper to run. It costs around £20 so it may be a while before you get your money back!

The only drawback is the rubber ring that holds the adaptor in place around the base of the gas cartridge. It perished within a year of purchasing the adaptor, so this is a safety hazard if the gadget is potentially able to become detached from the cartridge. I think Edelrid need to look at this part of the design.

Other than that, this is a useful way of making use of otherwise unwanted canisters or for running a cheap stove. It is simple to use and so far I have had no problems with gas flow. I use it with a gas stove supplied with a tube as the extra height added by the large screw at the top of the adaptor means an unstable set up if a stove (such as an MSR PocketRocket) is screwed directly into the top.
