The stove generates 2700W which corresponds to about 9200 BTU/hr. So regardless of its small size the stove should be pretty powerful.
From our experience the little BRS stove brings 2 cups (~0.5 L) of water from a natural source (~15C/52F) in about 2'30" to 2'50" depending on air temperature, water temperature, wind, etc. I mostly use an 1 L wide aluminum pot with a lid and use a small wind screen to reflect some heat.
Super easy. Just flip those pot support legs out and twist the stove on your canister. Tip: make sure the control valve is fully turned off before twisting the stove on.
Because the stove is so compact the pot support legs are shorter than the larger stove's but they are long enough to support both the compact "tall" pots and the wider pots. With the wider pots the trick is to orient the pot so the handle is against one of the legs then it will be stable.
The BRS stove is very secure on a canister and the pot support legs will not move anywhere. If a canister itself sits on the surface secure there should be no problems. I've had an 1 L wide pot hard boiling for a minute before I attended to it and it did not move anywhere, so I conclude that the little "teeth" on the pot support legs have enough traction with a pot bottom.
This is not an exact science because how much fuel is required depends on many different factors, but from my statistics during an average overnight trip I boil roughly 2 liters of water for 3 meals and drinks for 2 people and this stove burns about 30 g of butane in 11 minutes for this task, which would estimate roughly 36 minutes of burning time for a small 100g canister and 1 hour and 15 minutes of burning time for a large 220g canister.
This stove is often discussed as a very lightweight alternative for Ultra Light Backpacking and is often compared to the Jetboil.
Very disappointed in this camping stove. We tried it once at home and it worked. We then took it with us backpacking in the back country at Rocky Mountain National Park. It wouldn't work at all. Luckily we planned for this type of scenario and had a back-up Pocket Rocket stove that is old but still worked great.
I've been using the "etekcity" style burner with piezo for years. I originally got it off deal extreme before it became popular probably 7 years ago. It served me well through week long elk hunts and camping excursions. I got this one to save a little room and weight. It actually boils water much faster than the etekcity stove, which just makes it all that much better. It also seals to the can without any leakage while putting it on. The etekcity always let's out a "hiss" of cold gas.
I just received it and tried it out. I super like it for its near zero volume and weight. Easily screwed onto an 8 Oz can of "4 Season Mix Power Gas". Valve and flame control worked flawlessly. I am a multi-day back packer who must limit weight and space in my bag. I am using this ONLY to bring 16oz water to a boil.
I have recently returned from a 2200+ mile, 10 week bike packing/touring trip from Lands End to the north of the Shetland Islands. I used the RSB BRS Ultralight Titanium Alloy Camping Gas Stove to boil water on many days when camping. It did exactly what it was designed to do. It allows fine tuning of the heat level produced down to the lowest level to the highest. I had no problems using it with a titanium mug/pot.
Well made, ridiculously small, light as a feather, works well. The only thing that may be an issue is that the support footprint is small. So not for frying pans (I use my excellent Pocket Rocket for that) but ideal for a 650/750 titanium pot in an ultralight cook set. I would buy again if ever I lost it (which is distinctly possible as it’s so tiny).
Loved the weight, this thing is tiny
I haven't had extensive use of it yet but for the price it seems like a great little stove. It boils water pretty fast and it's super light.
Lightweight, easy to use and reasonably priced. It comes with a small bag. Great equipment for a simple kitchen setup. I haven’t used it extensively so I cannot say anything about its durability. It’s tiny so it’s probably not suitable with big pans and pots.
This is a great little cooker. Very light and small. I got the cooker, a 650ml titanium cup and a gas canister stand, which has made a great ultralight solo person cook set.
Weighs nothing and works like a dream. Not sure how good it would be on strong windy conditions
Brilliant, awesome boiling water, quite powerfull considering how tiny it is !!
Tiny and light a feather, excellent for the price. Don't forget a lighter as there is no sparker.
Pot support melted on first use, no surprise pot fell to floor.
Quality little stove. Well worth the money
Great lightweight and small
Der aktuell vermutlich beliebteste Gaskocher auf allen "long distance trails".
Habe für eine viertägige Wandertour meinen alten Campingkocher gegen den BRS-3000t ausgetauscht und bin positiv überrascht. Ich hatte anfänglich Zweifel bezüglich der Haltbarkeit und Fähigkeit des Brenners. Aber nach der Wandertour und fünf warmen Malzeiten und vier heißen Kaffees muss ich sagen, dass sich der Kauf gelohnt hat. In Kombination mit einer kleinen Gaskartusche spart man sich einiges an Gewicht. Zusammen mit einem 600ml Bechers war das System sehr stabil. Einzig bei kalten Temperaturen und Wind war die Flamme natürlich nicht zentriert unter dem Becher und hat nicht die volle Leistung gebracht. Aber wenn man sich auf die Seite des Kochers gesetzt hat, aus der der Wind kam war das kein Problem. Alles in allem bin ich sehr zufrieden mit dem Brenner. Hoffe er wird auf lange Sicht auch so stabil bleiben.
The three foldable supports that hold your pot are made with very weak material. The first time I tried the stove I was warming up 0.5 liters of soup while camping. There was a slight breeze, but not a strong wind, which was blowing the flame of the stove slightly off centre. The flame was hitting the support and heating it up quickly to where it would glow red hot and then the heater metal would bend under the weight of the pot. I tried rotating the pot and covering the slight breeze and this helped a little bit but then then the other support failed quickly. I ended up having to cook the entire pot of soup holding it over the flame because the stove was not robust enough to stand up to the heat. Judging from all the other positive reviews here, either the quality has gone down hill, or they had some quality control issues because my stove was completely useless. I decided to spend 3 times the price to get a similar stove made by a reputable outdoor company.
