Optimus Nova Plus Stove


Product Details

The Optimus Nova Plus Stove includes all the amazing high-altitude and cold-weather performance of the regular Nova stove with an additional Powerline hose for easier use. This hose includes a quick disconnect from the pump for faster brew sessions, and puts the flame control further from the burner to keep your hands singe free. The Nova Plus Stove burns on white gas, Optimus arctic fuel, kerosene, diesel, and jet fuel because you never know what type of fuel your expedition may get stuck with. This compact gas stove takes up less space than a fuel bottle when folded and weighs only 15 ounces, including the pump.

Price : $ 159.95

Camping Stoves Checklist

What Type of Stove? For general campground use, get a campground/propane stove. They are far easier to cook with, and have more options, than a backpacking stove.
Fuel Type? A dual fuel stove is always handy, especially for a backpacking stove. However, for general camping use with a campground/propane stove, it's still hard to beat propane. You can buy propane canisters nearly anywhere.
For Backpacking... My preference are liquid fuel stoves. They are more versatile and fuel costs are lower. Still, there are some advantages to canister stoves...especially if you don't mind the higher fuel cost that goes with them.
Don't Invite the Bears to Dinner! When in Montana or Yellowstone Park, the number #1 way to invite a bear to dinner is to leave your stove (and pots/pans) lying around right after cooking. So...don't be lazy. Clean-up once you're done cooking and put your stove in your vehicle.
