Starlyte XL3

Postby zelph » Fri Jan 20, 2017 6:46 pm

This is new design that will come with a lid:

Weighs 1 ounce. 3" in diameter and 1" in height
lid weighs .10 ounce
Has 3 ounce fuel capacity in suspension.......won't spill out.
Lid will prevent vaporization of unused fuel.
Works well inside larger Caldera Cones.

Is it the tool or the hand that malfunctioned :lol:
It looked like another winner. A piece of stainless shim might make a good simmer plate ;)

I think it was both. It's a commercial tool but I think it needs improvement :o I have a unit at home that will work much better. This week I'll ask if the faulty tool can be returned. My left hand might be a little weak and was part of the problem :mrgreen:

The hand tool does not allow for a complete seal of the top portion of the burner and so the lid won't fit properly. The lid is an important feature.

Determination and perseverance made this project materialize to a point of making them available to happy backpackers :D

Dimensions:

3" Diameter at the lid

1-3/8" in height

Weight including lid: 0.9 ounce (25/26 grams)

Fuel holding capacity is 3 fluid ounces in suspension. Will not spill out if accidentally knocked over. Very favorable feature in areas of "fire bans"

Body is made of food grade aluminum and has stainless steel mesh screen over the ceramic absorbing material. Has copper wick in center for easy ignition in extreme cold weather.

Works well in conjunction with Trail Designs Caldera cones of 900ml and larger.

Comes with tight fitting plastic lid that prevents vaporization of left over fuel. No need to empty unused fuel after boiling your water, just blow out the burner, let cool and then cover with lid. Lid should NOT be used to snuff out burner. Caution, Burner gets HOT

Cost: $23.00 + $4.00 shipping
