Function well but build quality reflect cost – Ultra Mini Portable Outdoor Metal Butane Stove (2*AG3) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Build quality is reasonable considering the low price. The igniter is effective and convenient. I found the rubber seal where butane container is connected damaged causing some leakage. However I was able to replace it and dis-assemble the unit for leakage testing of the valve.
Cons:
The valve needs to be very tight else it will leak. A check with a magnifier confirm the valve surface is not well machined hence the leak if not tighten well. With the butane container attached the stove will tilt unless it is counter-weighed with a pot/kettle.
Other:
Never leave the butane attached when not in use. A concern cross my mind whether on extended use the heat reflected will cause problem on the butane container.
Bottomline:
Recommended buy.
