These cubes ignite with a simple spark (nice!), burn for about 12 minutes (average), produces a very strong flame at the beginning (interesting) and leaves a lot of soot on my pot (eew!). The tablets could boil 2-3 cups of cold water depending on the cook kit (average). Because of the smoke I think I will only use this to fire up my grill or fire. It is supposed to be waterproof so a tab or two may come with me in my emergency fire kit. Only problem is the soot. I don't know what the fuel actually is, though I'm sure it's a variation on ESBIT. A complete set of images from my tests with this fuel is on my Flicker starting here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/richardmaycr/22300618722/in/album-72157651260318840/
