Last week we showed you the new Jetgauge fuel gauge from Jetboil that will save you wasting so much fuel. Joining that useful accessory are two new stoves from Jetboil for 2018 — an updated Flash and the new Millijoule.
For those cold weather and high altitude adventures, burning liquid fuel is the key to consistent performance but liquid fuel stoves can sometimes be a pain in the backside to use. By inverting the canister, the Millijoule delivers pressurized liquid fuel straight to the 10,000 BTU burner where it is then vaporized before burning, giving you improved cold weather performance.
The addition of the regulator not only ensures consistent heat output down to 10 degree F, but for those summertime backpacking trips, go ahead and flip over the canister for unparalleled simmer control.
The Millijoule comes with a more-vertical-than-wide 1.5 liter FluxRing pot with insulated folding handle and strainer lid, including an extra windscreen that fits inside. The whole system weighs just 19.3 ounces. Jetboil claims the Millijoule will boil a liter of water in 2 minutes and 40 seconds on average over the life of a JetPower canister — you should be able to get around 24 liters boiled out of one of the big 230-gram canisters.
The updated Flash is the fastest water boiler that Jetboil has created yet — it can boil a ½ liter of water in 100 seconds flat. This is thanks to a larger, 9,000 BTU burner and wider air intake openings to create a more intense flame.
To shave weight off the Flash, Jetboil employed lighter materials such as an aluminum heat shield — the stove now comes in at 13.1 ounces compared to 15.25 ounces for the current Flash models.
The Flash comes with a 1 liter FluxRing cup and insulated cozy with color changing heat indicator. You’ll get to choose from a few different cozy designs including an awesome camo version. The bottom cover doubles as a bowl or measuring cup while protecting the base of your stove in transport.
The Millijoule will retail for $180 and the new Flash for $99.95 — both shipping February 1st.
