Optimus Nova+

This stove weighs 302g burner, 216g fuel bottle, 38g windshield (+ fuel); 3 min 22 sec boil time; ingenious flame control at fuel bottle end; 16cm diameter pan supports; low profile for stability; burns refined and unleaded petrol, paraffin, diesel. But high price tag; more care required; foil base reflector would perhaps improve performance.Verdict
Excellent if pricy multi-fuel stove with good flame control.
