Solo Stove Lite Camp Stove
Discover the Revolutionary Solo Stove Lite Camp Stove
This Solo Stove is the perfect addition to any backpacker’s bag as a lightweight cooking stove for one to two people. And perhaps the best part about the Solo Stove Lite is there’s no need to carry fuel with you!
Cooking your food shouldn’t depend on you needing to carry fuel, or finding a place that sells gas or propane. Since nature provides the perfect tinder and wood all year ’round, you can minimize your pack weight and your footprint with this ultra-efficient stove.
The Solo Stove operates on small twigs and sticks, or an alcohol burner, to fuel the fire. The air intake holes at the bottom of the stove send an air flow to the bottom of the fire, which of course feeds the fire and allows it to burn.
At the same time, the bottom holes allow air to flow up, between the walls of the stove. This now-heated air feeds back into the firebox through smaller holes at the top of the stove. This inflow of warm oxygen causes a secondary combustion, which allows the fire to burn more completely.
The result is a hotter, more efficient fire that produces very little smoke. This means you’ll use less wood than you would for an open camp fire.
The Solo Stove also features a heat shield between the ash pan and the bottom of the stove. This protects the ground under the stove from scorching or catching fire.
The cooking ring has an angled lip, which increases efficiency by directing the heat of the fire toward your pot. And the cooking ring also acts as a wind screen.

Are Solo Stoves Airplane Friendly?
Yes! Solo Stoves, unlike most canister fuel burning stoves, can be carried on or checked in at the airport. We do not, however, recommend lighting the stove while you’re on the plane.
