Was it Linzy that said tealite stoves were addictive?

Nice mini burner, Zelph. Super UL ! ;) Someone told me a stove is not a stove without the potstand. :P :lol: Is it hard to fill a premeasured amount of fuel? My other question is: Would this burner be considered a pressurized burner in the fact that it does not have jet ports but a fiberglass top? Would the Starlyte be considered a pressurized stove or an opened stove? I've always thought of pressurized stoves as burners that the only escape for fuel is through tiny jets. Or, is a pressurized stove a burner with any restriction of escaping fuel? :?

I've been messing around with tealites. I can't get a regular tealite to boil 2 cups of water, hot, but not boil. I cut the bottom out of one and extended the sides.about 1.5 times a regular tealite. Got 2 cups to boil with 18ml alky but it took 10 minutes. . Open stove.

I changed the title to "burner". A stove needs to have a potstand ;)

This burner has 4 jets and it gets pressurized(low). It has fiberglass on the top of it that acts as the primer wick. This burner was made long ago, I came across the photos while doing a search.

The StarLyte does not pressurize. The Supercat is pressurized with large jets. I would say yes, a a burner with any restriction of escaping fuel would be pressurised (could be high or low)

HOZ, there are lots of variables to get 1/2 ounce of fuel to boil 2 cups.

:D I limit my container size to hold 1/2 ounce of fuel. Going smaller is for gram weiners :lol:

Real gram weiners pour the alcohol in their hand, light it and hold the pot!

Whoa!!!! good one Dana :D

How would it be to pour the fuel into a mug, light it, let the pot get red hot, then pour the water in :roll: :mrgreen:
