Try it without the tee. Then it will be in the backpacking range. Good one for the swiss volcano.

Use some aluminum conduit, or big magic markers, or anything else that comes in aluminm.

See what happens when you wickatize a container :mrgreen:

Copper is a great conductor of heat so I'm sure that plays into how the pipe is able to transfer heat to the alcohol.
But I also have to wonder how much heat is lost through radiation. As Oops showed, he had to insulate the pipe with wick to maintain a flame.
Perhaps a a different material would have better results?
