The 2nd image of this product with the guy and his kid clearly shows an adapter to use the "bug spray" type canisters INSTEAD of the regular B188 / EN417 screw type lindal valve canister shown from the first image. Additionally, does the listed weight include that adapater?
Thanks for pointing that out to us, mate. Embarrassingly enough, that photo isn't even of the Gasmate Backpacker Stove but a different stove altogether. We've taken that photo off now. Sorry for any confusion!
Or do I have to buy a gasmate cartridge?
The Gasmate Backpacker Stove uses a different type of connection, pressure and gas to your 9kg bottle.
For this stove, you'll need to buy the canisters.
For the gas mate backpacker stove
Most reputable camping stores along with well-stocked petrol stations/roadhouses should carry the screw threaded gas canisters. This style of canister is the most common as is the required canister for the Gasmate Backpacker Stove along with many other hiking stoves on the market and the canisters can often be purchased in a range of sizes.
Can you suggest a cooker that would be suitable for use with a wok?
Unfortunatley I think you'll find many portable stoves are to small to successfully use a wok without having to pay really close attention to keep it upright.
Just purchased campfire Pioneer Wok
I wouldn't recommend it as the Gasmate Backpacker Stove is very unlikely to provide the required stabilisation without very precise attention to keep it balanced as you cook.
Hi I am just looking at other options to use under my trangia for faster boil and was wondering with this on top of the small gas mate cartridge would it fit to work with the small trangia? Thank you Laura.
Hi Laura, good question! I've never been asked this before, so I've given it a go. The Gasmate stove will work, but the smallest Gasmate Cartridge (230gm) is too big. It does however work using the stove with a 100gm Cartridge. It's just fits, with the top of the stove sitting just below the top of the windshield.
