The Vargo Triad XE is a jetted and pressurised alcohol stove that looks superficially a bit like its sibling, the Triad, but there are a number of significant differences. It is promoted as being 'dual-fuel': you can use the assembly to burn solid fuel tablets as well by removing the alcohol tank. This review will focus on using the Triad XE with alcohol, and a small modification that can be made to the stove that helps it light more easily.
