Check out this great video by TerraFirma369. He made his own StarLyte knockoff. He does great work on DIY stoves. Hats off to him also for directing his comments to bplite.com. Thank you for the kind words TerraFirma369.

Got some photos from a satisfied user of the StarLyte. Being used in the upper elevations.

Dan,

I have a few new pictures from yesterday. While the temps were in the 40s.... I did snowshoe up higher than I'd been on the south side of Mt. hood and took a picture with my GPS next to the stove, 7,075ft and it warmed my already cooked lentils and bread quite well. With the new stove I promise to do a boil test on water I'm carrying, liter and/or half liter worth.

Will send the pictures this evening or this weekend (at work now!)

Nice pic. Make me glad I'm indoors right now. Looks to be bone-chilling conditions. Is that an EZ-Fold windscreen, Zelph ? The second pic shows a lot of ridges on the top edge.

Doesn't look like an E-Z fold to me....
Really neat pictures! Bet you're glad to have them.

I just recently sent him the new stainless steel version of the StarLyte and an EZ-Fold windscreen.

It sure do look cold in them elevations. I think there must be a way to drive up most of the way :mrgreen:

“StarLyte”Instructions

Always use a windscreen for maximum efficiency of fuel

Use only pure methanol (such as “HEET” brand auto gas line freeze inhibitor (yellow bottle), or a methanol/ethanol mixture known as “Denatured Alcohol” sold in paint and hardware stores. DO NOT use “HEET” in the red bottle. No other fuels are recommended.

“Lighting Instructions”

1. Choose desired fireproof, level cooking surface. Pour desired amount of fuel into center of stove using pliable fuel cup. Stove fuel capacity is 1 ounce. ¾ ounce of fuel should boil 2 cups of water using a windscreen in an outdoor setting. Results may vary depending on weather conditions and also the design of pot being used.
2. Light the stove and immediately place pot onto stove. If small diameter pot is used you may place pot onto stove first and then light.
3. Place EZ-Fold windscreen around the pot leaving at least 2 inch space all the way around its perimeter. Large paper clip is to be used to hold windscreen closed around the pot. Always have the windscreen completely around the pot.

Good News!!!!!

I'm working on a 2 ounce fuel capacity version of the StarLyte. Some parts are cut and waiting for me to get coordinated :roll:

As of May 10, 2011 ...
You now have 5 designs along that line? (or more?):

The original 0.5 ounce StarLyte (integrated pot stand)

The custom 2.5 ounce StarLyte (no integrated pot stand)

The 3.0 ounce Companion Burner (no integrated pot stand)

The Custom 1.0 ounce for BCB Crusader (no integrated pot stand)

A new 2.0 ounce StarLyte (pot stand unknown)

That's a nice line-up!

I've been drooling over these for a while now. I'm pretty sure I will be ordering the companion burner for my woodgaz stove. I like the long burn time you can get with it.
