Home Lightweight Cook Stoves Jetboil Flash Lite

Jetboil Flash Lite


Solo cook systems are all about fast and light really. And the Flash Lite is just that. It hits the scales at just over 300g – making it just over 500g with a 100g canister. Yet the cup-size is a decent 0.8L and tall and slim, so will just about cope with a boil-in-the-bag type meal. This extra capacity over other solo systems makes it easier to get a reasonable volume when melting snow too. It’s fast – under 3 minutes for 500ml in my less than scientific comparison test. And while the piezo ignition proved reliable and kicked it into life every time, I still carry a back-up so see this is a convenience rather than essential. I love the way the whole kit fits together: the small tripod – which adds stacks to the stability – fits together with the burner inside the cup, and a gas canister slides easily in on top. The heat diffuser cover doubles as a cup or measuring jug.
