X-boil Standard burner (no windscreen)
X-Boil Standard is a small alcohol burner that can be used with many types of pot holders and windscreens. The burner diameter is 55 mm.
- You can use the burner with a graphite mat if you want safety, but you can also use the burner without it.
- The burner lights up with the graphite mat much better in cold temperatures than without it. Because of this, you can use X-boil even in cold weather. This makes it a very nice stove for small winter use when you don’t have to melt large amounts of snow. In the winter, using a small plywood board under the stove prevents it from sinking in the snow.
- You can use a ferrocerium rod to light the burner. Another trick is to dip a small stick in the fuel, light the stick and bring the flame in to the burner.
- The X-Boil burner works well as a backup for wood stove and as a booster for Trangia in the winter. You can also burn Esbit cubes inside it (remove the graphite mat first).
Weight: 12g, of which 5 g is removable graphite mat.
