    One last time…

    7.5 fl oz soda can, Ti stand, aluminum windscreen, aluminum Esbit tray, silicon lip guard, aluminum foil “lid”.

    0.69 oz

    The Dr Pepper can kit is .07 oz lighter than the Sam’s can setup, but does the narrower Dr Pepper can heat as efficiently as the wider Sam’s can? I’m betting not. I’m requesting a 3.5 gram Esbit test (with temperature reading) using the Dr Pepper can. I know you used 8 oz water with your earlier Sam’s can test, but since Dr Pepper is only a 7.5 oz can you can’t do that of course. Maybe a 6 oz water test on both cans just to compare. I suppose you could do a 7.5 oz water test with each of them instead.

    So only slightly better performance with the Sam’s can, however, it would be more stable as it’s wider and shorter with a lower center of gravity. I didn’t use aluminum lids in my tests, but obviously that helps heat more efficiently, Thanks David.

    Monte, here are the photos from this mornings playtime :)

     

    Fish eyes with 3.5 esbit after 5:30

     

     

    8oz water to level seen.

     

     

    Fishe Eyes equates to pasturization of water and great temp for coffee and hot chocolate.

     

    The large ridge on top of pot allows me to pick up the hot water pot without aide of glove

    How about 6 oz of 10.6*C water and 3.5 grams Esbit so as to do a direct comparison with David’s Sam’s cup kit? He got a boil in 4:35 with that volume and water temp. Just curious if you’d get a boil any quicker than that. Then with your total kit weight being ,07 oz lighter than David’s Sam’s can setup, you’d take the lead as “absolute lightest.”

    I’ll mail you a couple of Esbit cubes if you need them for testing Dan.

    I’ll do 2 more tests on Monday. I have enough esbit. It will be easy to boil 6oz water. Because of the large ridge on the pot, I should be able to sip without a lip guard. Every time I mess with stove stuff I learn something new 

    The cup I’ve created far exceeds the durability of the soda cans used in the test so far, that’s worth an extra point
