    Just a heads up for anybody who may be interested in this but after seeing one a mate had a few years ago i bought one as i do feel the cold........ these were about£32 a while back in my local camping supplies shop , a family run business but they are now £14.95

    it says the rrp is £39.99.... not always true i know but they are only 88grams

    you could remove the hanging cable to remove 4.1 grams

    anyway.... not sure if anyone on here would be interested but just thought i would put it out there.

    heres the link...........

    Thanks, bought one for the house, always having several power cuts over the winter so it will come in very handy. Price has put me off buying before.

    A slippery slope indeed but for the colder darker months maybe an option ? #glamp :)

    Yes there's not much in a 100g/110g gas can hey...

    It would be 83.9grams if you remove the cable:whistling:

    Not sure what use you're thinking of but IMO the BRS 'candle' would be pretty useless at lighting up a bothy & for a tent I'd much rather have the convenience/ safety/ weight of LED lighting.

    I haven't really thought it through, just a kit junkie :)

    I was thinking more along the lines of moderate heating and keeping condensation at bay?

    Adding water vapour (from combustion) to warmer air hitting a cold flysheet? Would it reduce condensation?

    Not sure but might CO be a concern here. Particularly with a small tent.

    Condensation is the change of water from its gaseous form (water vapor) into liquid water. Condensationgenerally occurs in the atmosphere when warm air rises, cools and looses its capacity to hold water vapor.

    So if the inner tempreture is kept warn, the Vapour as it hits the shelter sides, shouldn't turn to condensation?

    When we exhale, our breathe cools quickly as it rises, hits the shelter when it's cool and condensates... Same with the transportation from the grass, Heather etc.
    Or that's how I see it. Wouldn't be the 1st time I'm wrong lol

    Not really an issue with single skin vented shelters... Even in an open tarp it would raise the tempreture...
    I'd like to think that as TrekLites were quite savvy to dangers...?

    My limited experience of burning a tea light in a Cone or letting a starlight with simmer ring burn out after cooking is that it removes condensation. Surprising how much heat and light it gives out as well, a better option for me if i was inclined.

    I spent a week lusting after a ti woodstove and big mid with stove Jack. Turns out a couple hundred grams of down makes more sense!
