Jet Boil Cup

Post by zelph » Tue Sep 25, 2007 10:15 pm

The design of the Jet Boil Cup is interesting. It's their claim to fame in the performance of their system.

Those of you that have the cup are willing to make a series of tests, right?

Use your best alcohol stove and pot(same diameter bottom as Jet boil) to boil 2 cups of water. Do it under optimum conditions that are repeatable. Test it 3 times. Record your findings.

Next, use the same stove but use the Jet Boil cup as your pot. Use the same conditions as the first three tests.

What are your results?

What is every ones guess as to the results. Will the J B Pot have much faster boil times or just so so? Or the same?

My guess is so so!!!

These photos were taken this year in Maryland when I was on vacation. I needed to see what the cup base was made of. Take a look.

Alright!!!!! You're awake by now. Yor head is clear and ready for anew day :)

Use the military trangia and cross pot support that you show in this photo::
Image

Take the bottom part of your Jet Boil pot off and set it directly on the cross pot support of the trangia.

Now use the same trangia and pot suport with a different pot of the same diameter of the Jet Boil or close to it.

Use 1 ounce of fuel in the trangia for each test. After a test empty what's remaining in the burner and refill with 1 ounce.

We're only interested in the pots and how they compare. Wanting to know if the fins on the Jet Boil help a whole lot.

That's a hot avatar oops!!! Is that Tom Hanks makin fire?

Wow!!! first try says Jet Boil fins make no difference. I did'nt expect that!!!

I test stoves before I wash dishes, save the hot water for the dishes :D (pre soak)

Making fire with a hand drill was the highlight of the movie. Made my hands hurt looking at Hanks all bandaged and bleeding. good Movie!!!!

This is the last test i am not sure if i coming or going at this point.
Both have same o. d. the pot alum. is thicker then the jet boil keep that in mind.
Both stoves same make and model .The right had to make taller to work on the fins.

Left pot 3-1/2 min.burn water 170F at 5 min. flame out at 5 min. 192F
Jet boil 3-1/2 min. burn 155F at 5 min. boil flame out at5-1/2 min.

Yes, we have to keep that in mind.

Let's take this testing one step further if you don't mind, Stovie ;)

Remove the jet boil pot from its holding ring. Put the ring on the jet boil stove and then attach the stove to canister. Now put your aluminum pot of water on the jet boil stove and fire it up.(use the pot on the left hand side in the photo) See what happens.
