OT: I saw a WAPI for sale online at a small price that had "washers" and "string" on each end, for dangling off the edge of the hot water pot. That idea is nifty.
except I believe optimum flame pattern for the cooking pot, stove-to-pot height, and a conical windscreen is ideal: the goal of optimum efficiency to heat to desired temperature, to use the least fuel to heat to the temperature and to have a stove design that does not have stove flareups.

A Water Pasteurization Indicator (WAPI) is a simple thermometer that indicates when water has reached pasteurization temperature and is safe to drink.

Thanks for contacting North Star Devices Inc for WAPIs..
We are a manufacturer and not set up for individual sales. We sell only in lots of 100 to distributors with open accounts.
We suggest that you contact http://www.solarcookers.org in Sacramento, CA, which is much closer and does handle smaller sales of WAPIs
An alternative is http://www.solarovens.org, but it is located here in Minnesota.
However, Solar Ovens is introducing a new WAPI with a tiny stainless steel cable designed especially for campers using campfires. Open campfires might destroy the plastic nylon line on the ordinary WAPI as it is draped over the edge of the pot unless the camper is very careful. The original WAPI was designed for solar ovens which seldom get so hot as to damage the plastic line.
Enjoy your camping
