That big glob of text up there is the "embedded" text conglomeration :roll: that is available in the upper right hand side of the youtube page when viewing a video. I've contacted Dlarson to see if there is a switch that needs to be turned on here at bplite in order to get the embedment feature.

I am no expert, but it appears that you must setup the blog to support this. Refer to this video:

I'm no expert but thanks to your link I was able to set the board up to do the task for me at least. Now I have to figure out how to make it easy for everyone to utilize it. Thank you DaddyMnM :D

Here's a video that shows how cold water has an affect on a White Box Stove compared to a BudLyte Super Stove. The two stoves were placed in an aluminum pan. ignited and after a short time two cups of 60 degree tap water was poured into the pan. I'll do the same type of test with a "Cobalt" stove and post.

Interesting comparison Zelph, Why does the WB react that way when I know it will burn in snowy winter conditions? Is it just because of the temperature change? The new SUPER Stove is very impressive under these testing conditions! ;)

RR, my guess is the WB is able to overcome the low air temp and bring the alcohol to its vaporization point but since the water is in direct contact with the stove it continuously cools the stove below the vaporization point.

RR.........I think RB's idea is probably the reason. I'll have to do an experiment with the two stoves placed into 1" of snow and see what happens. Another experiment will be to place them on snow and see how they light, do a comparison in cold temps.

Here is a recent test done with the "Cobalt" stove, same water test. Read the comments made to the video:

That makes sense. That particular WB is non-wickitized. I recall Bill mentioning that he was testing some using wicking material. wheather he ever made any into production or not, I don't know. Obviously, this test confirms that wicking material is a positive attribute when lighting your stove in a puddle! :lol: :lol:
