    "Constructed from ultra-lightweight titanium and anodised aluminium" At that price how much of it is Titanium I wonder. Nice looking little stove and a good price.

    Kind of funny given that aluminium is lighter than titanium

    But Aluminium is weaker so you need more of it

    I bought one for a pal to use last week, the fold out arms are a bit on the loose side but apart from that it seems to be okay.

    The stove is made in China by a company called Fire Maple.

    The whole burner and pot support is TI the cannister and valve housing is Alu.

    Its very very light for a gas burner approx 50g.

    I would imagine if it was 100% alu it may melt a bit..............

    Bought one in Sports Direct in Leeds. Had no bar code on it, and nobody in the shop knew what it was or how much it should be. The manager suggested £3 and I didn't haggle... It is very light and roars nicely when turned up full. Not that convinced that the container that comes with it will last that long, but for that price I'm not overly worried!
