Got this for three reasons. First is that it fits into my smaller stove stands. Second is the ability to adjust the flame. Third is the price.
Didn't purchase the full Core alcohol stove with the stand pieces, just the Frag burner. Would have no problems buying the full stove if I didn't already have so many ways to use the burner alone.
It will work anywhere a Trangia will, unless the base is specifically designed for that burner.
Fits easily into a Firebox Nano, but you need to have a way to raise it up an inch or so.
Sets into an Evernew DX stand, and you can fiddle with the setup for different heights.
Even though the Evernew alcohol burner is great, wish I bought eight of these instead. Every bit as useful. Even more so with the flame adjustment.
I have similar Altoids type char cloth tins that are a decade old, burnt to a crisp, and rinsed often with water; so know this will last. The flame adjustment is actually pretty good. Am ordering more to add to all my kits.
Wish I had bought a case of these 20 years ago, it would have changed everything for the better.
