Overall Score: 79/100
Lightest Stove Tested
The stove was the lightest backpacking stove tested. The titanium stove is very lightweight (56 grams / 2.0 ounces) with the three-prong pot stand, boils 2-cups of water in 163 seconds, simmers well and packs up small.
Compact stove and easiest to assemble
The stove packs up small and was an easy stove to assemble.
Snow Peak LiteMax stove showed poor performance in the wind test
The Snow Peak LiteMax was the lightest stove tested and the easiest to assemble and disassemble but had long boil times compared to the other stoves tested. However, the stove performed poorly in the wind likely due to the side burning ports on the stove. The boil times in the wind were about three times longer than the boil times using the Soto Windmaster. The maximum estimated 2 cup boils per 100 gram fuel canister was only 11 boils. If you aren’t concerned about longer boil times or fuel efficiency and want to save a few grams the SnowPeak LiteMax might work for you.
