Optimus Crux LPG Stove



Show Description

A powerful high-altitude performer, the light, efficient Crux offers the ease of an LPG stove but is compact enough to fit inside your coffee mug. Delivers consistent heat, even at high altitudes. The oversized burner head distributes heat evenly and good-sized pot supports make balancing large pots a little less perilous.

  • Adjustable flame control.
  • Improved extended pot supports are more stable.
  • Comes with a neoprene carry case, small enough to tuck into the hollow of the canister.
