Product details
Official manufacturer description

The Optimus Crux Lite is an ultralight camp stove for cooking in the backcountry. When you're counting pack weight and it comes down to grams or ounces, the 72g (2.54 ounces) fits the bill. Not only will it help keep pack weight to a minimum, but it also packs down nice and small, folding away into its included stuff sack, which you can then stuff inside your cooking pot. All you have to do is grab a fuel canister (sorry, these are sold separately) and head out into the wilderness.

  • One of the world's lightest stoves - only 72 grams
  • Similar to best selling crux but does not fold as flat
  • Powerful and stable 3000 W burner (precise simmering and fast boiling)
  • The lightweight that boils water fast, but won't spot burn while simmering
