Camplux Dual Fuel Camping Stove
Agenda Free Link : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CMQ9PMX/ Colors : Blue and Black
Price : Blue is $35 and Black is $37 at the time of filming
Weight in Case : Right at 5lbs
Stove alone is around 3.5lbs
BTU’s : 7,200BTU
Measurement : 13 x 11.2x 3.14 inch Fuels : 8 oz and 16 oz propane or 8.8oz butane cans. Who Makes These : My suspicions is that there is one company who makes this stove for everyone else as there are countless companies who make models which look exactly the same.
Review Pros :
Runs on two types of fuel.
Does exactly what I have wanted it to do; turn on when I want it to and turn off when I want it to while being able to heat, boil and cook.
Price isn’t bad -but there are less expensive versions of this stove available; I can’t comment on the quality of those models but I may check one out in the future.
Easy to use
Small form factor
Great for camping, overlanding and even emergency use.
Very efficient – one can of butane lasted me almost 2 hours with a variety of cooking and boiling projects.
Good size burner allows for virtually any size pot or pan to be used.
Excellent output; I’ve never had an issue with boiling water for coffee quickly or with cooking a full fledged meal.
Ignition has always worked.
Flimsy feelings and that goes for the stove and the carry case.
Gas connection area features a door which feels very cheap and never is fully latched shut.
While you can adjust the intensity of the burner, there is a rather large zone where you should be able to simmer but rather, the burner simply goes out.
The company claims that this stove has excellent wind resistance; that isn’t accurate in my opinion. If it is a windy day, I would suggest setting up some sort of wind block.
This product like many products on Amazon features a lot of fake reviews; according to review analytic sites, roughly 60% of the reviews are fake for this product which is obvious when reading them.
Ultimately if you purchase this stove, this is what you are getting;
- a dual fuel stove for a low price
- a cheap flimsy build
- functional stove.
For the $35 that I spent, I consider it an excellent buy...if I paid any more the fit and finish of this stove would justify a refund but for $35, it’s just good enough. I purchased this in January and have used it dozens of times in all sorts of conditions; in the rain, in the snow and in very hot conditions. Never had a problem.
It should be known that there are more powerful versions of this stove out there; for an example, Gas One has a 15,000 BTU version of this stove which costs $60.
