After I gave a rundown of this ultralight, and ultra-cheap, canister camp stove, I received a message from a reader about how I should have focused more on the ultra-cheap part. My understanding now is that it is a knockoff of this Pocket Rocket stove. Honestly, I don’t know much about either stove’s value, stamina, or functionality, but I do know that the Pocket Rocket definitely has the better name. If I got one, I would have 2 rockets in my pocket. Sturdy, precise, and ready to fire.
MSR’s backpacking stove is the definition of efficiency. At 4″ x 2″ x 2″ and just 3 ounces, it fits unnoticeably inside packs or pants, and then attaches to a propane tank to boil a liter of water in under 3-1/2 minutes. Pocket Rockets need no priming, pressurizing, or maintenance. Additional features include a glove-friendly control for flame adjustment and a tri-sectional wind shield to protect the flame in breezy conditions. When used with an 8-ounce canister of MSR IsoPro fuel the Pocket Rocket can burn for around 60 minutes, or 16 liters’ worth of boiled water.
