The Solo II stove is a shorter version of the extremely popular White Box “Next Generation” stove.
It holds about 45ml (1.5 oz) fuel compared to the Next Generation capacity of 75ml (2.5 oz).
Both are made from the same aluminium bottle however the Solo II is 12mm (1/2 inch) shorter.
As the stove itself supports the pan, there is no need for a pan support. However due to the diameter, always make sure you check your pan of water sits correctly on the stove before lighting it.
It has a total burn time of about 13 minutes.This stove was designed with a smaller diameter fire ring and is suitable for pots like the MSR Titan Kettle, Snow Peak Trek 900, Vargo .9L Kettle, Firelite 900, Optimus Terra Kettle, GSI Pinnacle, etc.
Both White Box Alcohol Stoves incorporate a "Cope Roll" instead of rivets. The rolled edge seals the two parts of the stove making an unbelievably strong top rim and a stove that will hold more than 300 pounds of weight. With the two walls sealed tight the flame pattern is more consistent than any other bottle stove. You will never have to worry about broken rivets, burned out tape or broken and faulty wicks with the new White Box Alcohol Stoves.
Personally I prefer lighting all alcohol stoves using a flint and steel, Much safer than matches, lighter and bits of paper and you never burn your fingers.
