    The Backpackinglight deal: Free domestic shipping / $5 off International Shipping (note that USPS has temporarily halted First Class Mail shipping to Australia and a few other countries).  This offer will be valid until November 3oth.  Order the Ocelot Inferno HX Kit through our website and pay for shipping, the cost will be rebated when your item ships.

    Due to a lot of inquiries, we decided to launch the Ocelot Inferno HX Kit. This burner plate allows you to integrate a Sterno Inferno mug onto a Pocket Rocket stove with no modifications.  The burner plate can be mount or taken off in a matter of seconds. This allows you to use the Inferno HX mug as well as any other mug/pot that normally works with Pocket Rockets.

    In lab testing (under moderate burn rates), we consistently brought to a boil 500 ml of 20 C water using 5.7 grams of fuel.  The time to boil was around 4:00 minutes.  We were able to boil water in 2:00 minutes; fuel consumption went up to 6.6 grams.  In controlled wind tunnel testing, we boiled 500 ml of 20 C using 8 grams of fuel.  In the field we expect as good as or better results than the original Ocelot HX Kit.

    The burner plate is made of 304 stainless steel and weighs 21 grams.  The burner plate is only compatible with the Sterno Inferno mug.  The plate is compatible with both the Pocket Rocket Deluxe as well as the Pocket Rocket 2.

    To those it may concern: I have the prototype, and it’s a great piece of gear. Light, simple, foolproof to use and VERY effective. Nests nicely in the Inferno mug, alongside a small canister. Heat transfer from the PRD to the Inferno is impressive, even in light wind. If you already have both pieces that are required to use this, you’re a fool to not couple them together in this way.

    After doing a lot of research and analysis, we have concluded that we are better than a JetBoil System and in fact, we are on par with the MSR WindBurner / Reactor!  Our specification to the WindBurner are very close.  The key difference is that the WindBurner uses a 1,000ml pot and the Inferno is 600 ml.  That being said, the Ocelot Inferno weighs 8.9 oz compared to 15.3 oz for the WindBurner.  So, we are “WindBurner Light”!  Additionally we can use an auto-igniter (great in high winds), can simmer and can be converted to be used with any pot.

    We recently made a prototype to test out the Fire Maple 1L HX pot.  The results were outstanding.  We were able to bring 1 liter of 66 F water to a boil in 3:15 using 11.9 g of fuel.  That is dead even with the MSR Reactor!  More to come.

    In regards to simmering: I threw a cold can of soup – pretty sure it was minestrone from Amy’s, for those that will not be able to sleep without that detail – in the pot and dialed the PRD down so far that the reheating/simmering wasn’t actually taking place. Breezes were about 3mph at the time, and the stove kept itself happily alight with no windscreening aside from what was integral to the pot. A bit more throttle and some lackluster stirring brought everything to temp quickly. Impressive…and tasty: Amy makes good soup.

    Also, a 1L pot version? < interest intensifies >

    The Pocket Rocket Deluxe is one of the best canister topped stoves on the market.  By coupling it with the Ocelot Inferno HX plate and the Inferno mug, we are on par with the wind robustness of the MSR WindBurner/Reactor cooking systems.   A key advantage is the Ocelot Inferno HX cooking system weighs 8.9 oz compared to the MSR WindBurner at 15.3 oz.  That is a 42% weigh reduction.

    With respect to the current BPL discount, we have decided to extend the offer to include the original Ocelot HX system as well.  If you submit an order, please include the statement that you are a BPL member in the comment section.

    Sometimes, even a blind pig gets lucky!  When we manufacture production parts, we often add in a few R&D prototype parts for evaluation.  It turns out that one of the prototypes worked really well and we decided to add it into the current BPL deal.

    Introducing the Ocelot HX: Soto WindMaster (4-Flex).  This is a unique windscreen in that it surrounds the stove but maintains the use of the support arms.  This means that ANY HX pot that will fit on top of a Soto WindMaster 4 Flex will work.

    YouTube video

    The windscreen is compact and will nest over a 4 oz gas canister and weighs a scant 19 grams.  Performance in the wind is fantastic.  Using the Sterno Inferno with (with the windshield as well), we boil 500 ml of 20 C water using 6 grams of fuel.  Increasing the wind to 7 mph, the fuel consumption increases to 10 grams.

    This is being added to the current BPL deal.  Additionally, if you order the Ocelot HX: Soto WindMaster, a Sterno Inferno Windshield will be included with your order.   Be sure to mention that you are a BPL member.

    Speed isn’t important to me, but it is nice to know that you have it when you need it.  We did a boil test today using the Ocelot HX Soto WindMaster.  Boiled 1 liter of 20 C (68 F) water in 3:19 seconds and consumed 11.3 grams of fuel.

    Boiled 1 liter of 20 C (68 F) water in 3:19 seconds
    For some reason, I find this a little hard to believe.
    Minutes?

    The BPL Special Sale is almost over.  We just added a new product to the mix: the Ocelot FireMaple HX kit for the Pocket Rocket stoves.  It is the same deal, free Domestic shipping / $5 off International oreder.  Discount to be applied after shipment (note that you are a BPL reader in the commnet section).

     

    It has similar performance to the Ocelot Inferno HX kit but the Fire Maple 1 liter pot is easier to find, is cheaper and I like the 1 liter volume,

    Boiled 1000 ml of 66 F water in 2 minutes 51 seconds consuming 12 grams of fuel.

    The Sterno Inferno HX mug is getting to be more difficult to purchase (and the price in going up).  On the other hand, the 1-Liter Fire Maple (or OliCamp) heat exchange pot is plentiful and cheaper.  Plus, it comes with a relatively light lid.  I actually like the volume of the 1-liter pot as the Inferno tends to boil over pretty easily. I have some observational impressions that the Fire Maple pot has better fuel efficiency and slightly better wind resistance than the Inferno.
