i present: "twinkle"

Image

it is smaller than a starlyte, but bigger than a penny:

Image

Image

it holds about 12ml of fuel. maybe 10. i tried to put in 12 and you can see the result.

Image

worked fine until it really got cooking - then the fuel wanted out - any place it could go!
i need to wrap the lower container with some plumbers tape to tighten up the seal.

i have not tried to boil anything with this yet.
just playing around with some goodies i got in the mail.
not sure how long it will burn on a full charge. maybe enough to boil 1 cup.
this might be a perfect 'tea stove'.

It looks cool on overload. Don't light it until you have a cup of water over it. It will probably boil 1 1/2 cups.

I/2 ounce will boil 2 cups of water. Stick with containers that will hold that amount and work from there.

I made a little one that sat on my thumbnail. I'll see if I can find that photo.

It's fun to vary stove sizes and shapes.

I like the name, a little Twinkle off the StarLyte :mrgreen:

Hey Mike, use one of your creations to heat a hip flask of your favorite beverage while forging a new trail with your dog in the 18 inch snowfall you just had. Fill a burner up at home and put it in a small snack size ziploc. Put it onit's side next to the flask like in the photo.
