The "Fire Pot" kits will be ready and they can be purchased At "High Noon" via the "gear deals" forum at backpackinglight.com

I'll have the kit contents listed here first and then BPL and a link to there also. BPL has the most Titanium oriented folks ;) So I give them a "first" shot at the good deals. I first let bplite readers know it's coming :D The link for the sale will only be visible at BPL.

I'll have 6 kits available to begin with. If they sell well, I'll start taking pre-orders.

The emphasis of the kit is on "wood" as the primary fuel. Alcohol and Esbit as secondary fuels.

Looks lit a very nice kit! What is the total weight of the kit?

7.6 ounces I like the compact-ability of it for a wood burning stove. everything you see in the one photo is packed nicely in the pot. I need to make a new video but I can't find my recorder :roll: I still got too much stuff in my garage. It must be covered up out there somewhere. :mrgreen:

Re: New Titanium Cone and New Pot Design: as cylinder

Post by bbb » Thu Aug 29, 2013 6:31 am

I wondered if a (slightly heavier) cylinder variant might be useful:

the cylinder could wrap around the (blackened) pot thus reducing contact with soot and keeping soot out of pot inner.
The disadvantage might be extra weight in the cylinder to compensate for less rigidity due to its its non-cone-ness.

I assume the fire itself wouldn't care one way or another?

That's waht I did with this titanium windscreen/pot support. I wrapped around the outside of the pot.

I did a few tests with denatured alcohol to see the difference in boil times and total burn time between the Regular StarLyte burner and the Modified one.

Here are the results using 1/2 ounce Sunnyside Denatured Alcohol per test. Fuel measured out with 1 ounce graduated medicine cup.

2 cups of water in the Fire Pot. Starting temperature of water 70 degrees. Calm conditions in my garage.

All surfaces were allowed to cool before starting next test.

Modified StarLyteBurner

1 – Boil 9:30-------------Flame out 12:00 min.

2 – Boil 9:30-------------Flame out 11:42 min.

3 – Boil 9:30--------------Flame out 10:40 min.


StarLyte burner regular

1 Boil 7:47--------------Flame out 9:30 min.

2 Boil 7:30-------------Flame out 9:38 min.

3.-Boil 7:17--------------Flame out 9:19 min.

The video shows how I determined when the flame went out. It's a photobucket video so click on the photo to view video: :roll:
