I'm sorry if I'm posting this in a wrong thread.

First of all I would like to know when this stove will be available again for international orders.
I read that thread on BPL and wanted to try it with my Caldera Ti-Tri Sidewinder system. I saw two designs appropriate for the task here: http://www.woodgaz-stove.com/starlyte-b ... th-lid.php
I'm not quite sure why the "caldera special" edition has smaller area of alcohol evaporation? How this compares to the wider "hole" of a regular Starlyte stove in terms of fuel consumption and boiling times?
As I understood from folks on BPL, the pot height (measured from ground) should be 2", right?

Thanks,

Kindest regards, Greg.
Hello Greg, thanks for stopping by and joining in on a conversation. Welcome to bplite. The Stove Guys/Girls Channel :mrgreen:

The Modified StarLyte with smaller opening burns slower in an enclosed environment such as the Caldera Cone. I have not used the StarlYte burner in a Caldera Cone. Dan Durston over at backpackinglight.com is the expert at the Cone system. I have used it in my own clone of the cone that just surrounds my 4 cup aluminum pot but does not support it. My results with that is 2 cups boiled with 1/2 ounce of denatured alcohol.

Over at BPL I posted the burn tests between the modified and regular StarLyte burners to show the difference in length of burn. The slower burn rate is known to be more efficient. Those results should be available here also in the StarLyte thread.

Yes, the pot height should be 2", ground to pot bottom. You could stretch it a little and go 2.250"-2.500"

I'll have the burners available on Monday afternoon for International Orders.

Thanks for your interest in the StarLyte Burners.

What country are you backpacking in?

Hi Zelph!

Great news! I'm waiting to grab one.
The StarLyte with wide opening (the original one) is just looks nicer :mrgreen:
But if the caldera oriented burner is more efficient, I'l take it :) I believe you make smaller opening because in enclosed systems the supply of oxygen is not that big when using the burner in open setup. Am I right?

I'm backpacking in Israel.

All the best!

Greg
