The Worlds Lightest Alcohol Stove!


Ion Stove with TiPod

The Ion stove is the culmination of years of testing and design of various ideas that were driven by the desire to produce the lightest, most fuel efficient stove possible while still providing the consistent performance desired by an ultralight backpacker.  

This stove is not designed for groups or heavy cooking, its intended use is for a solo ultralight hiker that only needs to boil water and do some simple cooking. Of course the Ion is so light, that a group of hikers could each carry their own stove…
