Yesterday I purchased a new stove kit for my wife. Inexpensive, $26.99 with free shipping on Amazon. Name brand Lixada. Has any anyone had any experience with this set-up?
Look forward to having her test it in our back yard camp :-)
This is what it looks like with all the parts that come with it:

Kit arrived today. Clipped it onto a BRS3000t just for the fun of it.Jun 28, 2020 at 7:50 pm #3655218Ken ThompsonBPL Member
@hereLocale: Right there
The windshield reminds me of this Optimus offeringJun 28, 2020 at 8:28 pm #3655225
Hi Ken, last week JEFF MCWILLIAMS mentioned that one in a thread. Got me interested in it to see the clip-on mechanism. 1st impression is it can be easily modified to fit other stoves. Has no heat transfer to canister. Jeff was spot on when he said less finicky than the …….
This coming week I’ll be asking my wife to boil water for some ramen and eggs inside easy. It’s a new found morning breakfast :-)
The kit only costs 26.99. look at all the stuff you get with it:
For upright canister stove users looking for a wind screen solution, there is one other option on the market, and that’s the Optimus clip-on windscreen.
At 87g, it’s gonna be heavier than the Ocelot, but it may be less finicky.Jun 28, 2020 at 8:33 pm #3655227Jun 29, 2020 at 8:08 am #3655273
That looks like a connector to one of those cheap butane cartridges
and what’s the other one? maybe to transfer fuel to a canister???Jun 29, 2020 at 9:54 am #3655293Adrian GriffinBPL Member
The silver piece with the valve is a lindal-to-lindal valve that you would use to top up a canister from another canister. The orange and black piece is a a notch-collar-to-lindal adapter that you would use with the silver piece to top up a canister from the cheap tall canisters filled with n-butane.Jun 29, 2020 at 11:12 am #3655307
then you could screw them together and go cheap cartridge to canister : )Jun 29, 2020 at 1:25 pm #3655326
Thank you Adrian for that excelent explanation.

Adrian, will I be able to refill light weight Coleman Powermax gas canisters with this refill valve assembly?

Reasearch says the that type of adapter will not fit the Powermax canister….bummer.
I want to partially fill the PowerMax with Propane for cold weather use. Want to lay it on it’s side. Word has it that the canister has internal means of operating on it’s side.
I have access to 10 fluid oz. canisters of propane. Want to transfer to container that will lay flat. Cans of propane have lindal valve. Want to use with modified Kovia Spyder stove. What is best way to do the transfer?Jun 30, 2020 at 7:37 am #3655440

that goes cheap butane cartridge to canister
it may also go cheap butane cartridge to powermaxJun 30, 2020 at 7:52 pm #3655585
Thank you for your help Jerry. I’m going to get one of those adaptors and another one I saw while there looking at various kinds.
I’m going to experiment with small 100% propane canisters. A friend likes to be out in the woods at all temperatures, pushes himself to the limits. Last year -31 degrees Northern Minnesota. I’m putting together a kit for him. Toaks 1100ml pot, titanium pot support/windscreen and the Kovia Spyder.Jun 30, 2020 at 8:50 pm #3655592
I’m sure you’re aware that putting propane in a butane canister can cause excessive pressure and cause it to burst
Especially if it gets warmJun 30, 2020 at 9:16 pm #3655596

- <li style=”text-align: left;”>Yes, my research of Rogers’ papers has been very informative. Thanks for the heads-up.
Just in case anyone else is reading this :)Jul 1, 2020 at 8:31 am #3655642
I was thinking of putting the propane into the PowerMax canister because it can be laid on it’s side due to it’s construction. Not sure yet what pressures the PowerMax container is rated at.Jul 1, 2020 at 11:11 pm #3655826Roger CaffinModerator
@rcaffinLocale: Wollemi & Kosciusko NPs, Europe
It will be rated at the same pressures as any 30/70 screw-thread canister, by DoT regs.
Which means that I would NOT do it in summer time! But I (personally) might consider doing it in sub-zero weather, as the propane pressure is then low enough. But I am emphatically NOT making any recommendations or giving any advice to anyone.
You could re-read our article on exploding canisters, at
It has graphs covering the fuels and the full temperature range. (That is a recommendation!)
