The OPTIMUS SVEA doesn't really need much introduction from us, it is a climbing society cult classic which has been tested all over the world for a century. That it is still as popular as ever is testament to the classic design and performance, particularly at altitude. Ideal when both weight and volume needs to be kept to a minimum, this stove is solid brass and runs on white gasoline.
The lid doubles as a small cooking pot so you don't always need to carry a separate one.
- Complete unit weighs 550g
- Self pressurised tank so no need to pump
- Power: 1400w
- Fuel: White Gasoline
- Burn time of 50 mins at full power output
- Boil time for 1l water in 7 mins (altitude, climate dependent)
Excellent small stove - only one moving part!
fab bit of kit
Top notch product
What a great stove
The stove is fantastic and is a like for like replacement to one purchased in 1980 that had been lost. It is a stove for climbers, compact, robust and reliable.
