Kovea Titanium Ultralite review

This is the ultralite camping stove I ended up buying after doing the research for this page.  I paid $69 AUD delivered in Brisbane.  There are some stoves that are a bit lighter and the Kovea Supalite is a little lighter again - but without the piezo ignition.  I think 28 grams for a lighter is worth it.  I use this stove on the smallest size resealable Coleman gas cylinder and it was very stable with a small kettle or 3 litre sauce pan on top.  Boiled water very quickly, easy to set up, folds away nicely into a soft drawstring bag to go back inside the kettle for safe keeping.  A great buy.
