    Pretty good

    posted by isotco on 08/10/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It works and it brings water to boiling pretty quickly. Due to its covered construction it resists wind better than regular butane stoves. The pre-heating tube makes it viable for use in cold weather conditions as well making it able to use liquid butane fu...
    Cons:
    Had to adjust the pre-heating tube and piezo igniter to get it to work properly.

    posted by isotco on 07/09/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It sometimes works. Leg construction is pretty stable and it has rubber inserts to give it more traction.
    Cons:
    Shoddy build quality, the pre-heating tube is crooked and has several plier marks and is pinched in a couple of places. The ign...

    Very sharp pair of scissors

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Cuts hair very well, no problem with failed cuts. The build quality is good and the spring loaded pivot seems to be doing its job well. Easy to disassemble and adjust.

    The thumb hole is a bit small for my size 10 hands

    Slim metal HDD case

    posted by isotco on 02/14/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Nice clean looks. Comes with standard accesories, USB cord and pouch. Completely made out of metal, makes for decent heat sinking. The finish is nice and even and seems durable enough. The whole thing is pretty small, not much larger than the 2.5" disk it h...
    Cons:
    Needs a drop or two of CA glue to stay fully closed though it does not open accidentally in its original state.

    Works well

    posted by isotco on 12/23/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Works well and has piezoelectric ignition, uses no batteries. - Lightweight and easy to set up, also very small, especially when folded and put into the storage case. - Uses regular gas canisters with resealable valve.
    Cons:
    Flame is kind of like a bunsen burner and not all that well spread out. I do not think that it will matter very much though. Th...
