Stop packing heavy fuel and use what is around you. The Solo Stove burns wood, or any combustible material that you find while on your hike such as sticks, twigs, pine cones and other biomass. The Solo Stove doesn't just burn wood. It actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once, but twice!
The Solo Stove Lite is the smallest and lightest stove offered by Solo Stove making this the perfect individual or small group hiking stove. For additional backpack saving space the Solo Stove Lite nests perfectly within the Pot 900 (sold separately).
The cooking ring's angled lip also increases efficiency by directing heat towards your pot minimizing heat loss. It also acts as a windshield while still allowing oxygen to flow inward providing enough heat to boil 32 fluid ounces of water in about 8-10 minutes. The Solo Stove is indeed one of the most efficient wood burning stoves you'll ever own.
How it Works
The Solo Stove is a natural convection inverted downgas gasifer stove.
Designed with a double wall, The air intake holes on the bottom of the stove channel air to the bottom of the fire while at the same time, channels warm air up between the walls of the stove. This burst of preheated oxygen feeding back into the firebox through the smaller holes at the top of the stove causes a secondary combustion. This allows the fire to burn more complete which is why there is very little smoke during full burn.
A more efficient burn also means you'll use much less wood compared to an open camp fire.
