It is too heavy and confusing than I was thinking.
Got mine and it is a beast. Incredible design. Must have for all kinds of reasons. Fires up extremely easy. Had a rolling boil in about ten minutes. Very nice and tiny. Definitely buying one or two more to go in truck and bag. This is for the backcountry
I got mine today, as predicted. The stove is smaller than I expected but that is my fault. I have been looking for something like this since I used something similar in Canada years ago on a canoe adventure. This packs so small.
Titanium sold out. Excuse me, did I miss an indication that quantities are limited?
heads up, gram weenies: this stove is continually advertised to be lighter than actual. they claim the 2.8 oz was of a flimsy ti that they no longer make due to durability issues, but seem to refuse to re-list the actual weight. mine came in at 4.5 oz so i sent it back for refund.
te-wa
I thought mine felt heavy. I was worried the packaging got mixed up, and I got a stainless steel stove instead of Ti. But what you‘re saying kinda clears that up. Thanks
I wish someone invent a folding titanium pot...
Just going to selflessly plug the bush buddy https://bushbuddystove.com/ here. It burns wood fuel much more efficiently and creates no (black) smoke (unless you feed it nothing but fresh pine-cones, that sap is tricky)!
Interesting option. Soot on your stove and pot to get on your tent and liners for camp pads. Then, onto the backpack and have to store carefully in gear storage. Not all trails have sticks when there are a lot of rocks. May be hard to start in wet weather. Definitely also bring a lighter with you. Maybe solid fuel tabs. Not sure when no "open fires" rules might cause a ranger to come by when they see the smoke. Not sure I want to smell up the air with smoke. Definitely not as quick as the other stoves. Maybe just not for me.
This is a fantastic little stove. Super light and very compact. I've used mine extensively. Backpacking, car camping or BOB this is a great solution for reliable, inexpensive and fast meal prepping or water boiling. I'd buy another, but the one I have appears to be indestructible.
Verified. I just order the titanium stove and fire ant pouch with shipping directly from thier website for $61.19 with the code EMB25. ( thanks Dtotheatothevtothee) ......... and it get here in just a week!

Yeah, I know because I could not get their 10% Facebook code to work. They sent me "EMB20" for 20% off. So I ordered one, shared that on Reddit and then someone else replied with "EMB25" and I was like, "CRAP!!!"
Dtotheatothevtothee
Well maybe.... (scratching head) I could of tried 30 or 35 first... mhmmm.... Thanks again Dave , the code was the tie breaker in my books. I could make my mind up between the fireant vs vargo
Great stove, but this cheaper going to the Emberlit site, using coupon code "EMB25" making it $52.49 and paying $4.95 shipping.

Thanks for following up. In the greater scheme of things an extra ounce is not a big deal, but I would have felt better if they portrayed a weight range (i.e. 80-120 grams) rather than a specific weight of 79 grams. I bought it (and a 750 ml Ti mug to go with it) specifically to save 4 ounces over my other wood burning setup. I'm just saving fewer ounces now.
It's a great piece of kit, I've used mine a lot. And bought add-ons for various configurations. IMHO it burns as good (and clean) as a Toaks, is very stable and at least as easy to feed as an Emberlit. Yes, I own too many stoves. 🙄
It's kinda fun to tinker with it and test out what works best, but the setup I use most is: CORE 4 with three afterburners, TLUD plate and optional rocketport, depending on available fuel. For a large group I prefer CORE 5 with two fuel ports and three afterburners - you get a nice campfire with ~no smoke from handfulls of sticks or one "processed" log.

Thanks for putting us onto the Core 4 @YogaBear, @raptelan I'm now super excited to try one!
Glad to hear it! 😊 I agree with all your observations.
The Core 5 with two feed ports means that you can "crossfeed" long pieces, and that gives you a very low-maintenance fire. Great for cooking or a "campfire".
I agree that the Toaks is extremely well designed, setting it up is like a magic trick 😊 And it's definitely the best stove I've found for using wood pellets (top-down burn). My main annoyance is that it's tall and skinny, requiring a very flat and stable surface, especially for cooking.

This stove was a conversation piece on my recent section hike of the AT. It is lighter and far more compact than its cousins.
I would not burn wood in it again. It was a sooty mess afterwards. With no where in the woods to really wash your hands, I wasn't impressed. First place with running water, I took it in and cleaned it up.
Moved onto the Esbit tabs. It took one full size, 14 gram tab, the entire burn time to bring 22 ounces of freshly filtered stream water to a boilaveraging, 1,000-2,000 feet of altitude. If you're not in a hurry, this is fine, just do some other things. But you will be envious of the Jetboil folks who are cleaning up when your water starts boiling.
Keep it as an emergency stove I'd say. Great price!

What's wrong with soot? They are pretty normal with open fires... just scrape em off with some foliage... you're not glamping are you ? =)
My understanding is that the weight discrepancy is because the specified a thicker gauge from the manufacturer. Apparently, due to manufacturer tolerances, some of the old units were almost too thin. The new weight is 6.5oz or 184g.
I purchased mine a couple of weeks ago and brought it out on two backpacking trips. It's definitely not as light as I expected, but works pretty well. A bit awkward to set up at first, but you get used to it. Kind of a pain to light - either twigs or solid fuel cubes. Apparently, you can light the solid fuel in your hand and place it in. Dunno if I'm brave enough for that. ;)
Also good to note that Esbit solid fuel is NOT light nor does it bring water to a boil with just one brick when it's about 40 degrees @ 9000'. That was an eye opener.
Other than that, it's a good unit. I mostly used it as a backup for a jetboil system. It's nice to not have to rely on gas-fuel systems.

The 184g is the stainless steel version, not titanium. Best way to light this baby up is to use cotton balls coated in vaseline. You can pack a bunch in a small zip lock. Set 2 long twigs like chopsticks on the feeder mouth and place cotton ball at the top, light it and then tip it in - have some twigs in there first so the cotton ball fire can feed on them once it is in. I use a firesteel, don't even need lighters as the vaseline on the cotton ball catches the spark and lights easily.
arislan
Ah yes, 3.5oz. Their website is terrible. They talk all about the specs of the "ultra light" (steel) version right on the page for the titanium version.
Thanks for the cotton ball tip!
I have one of these from an earlier drop, and highly recommend it.
Hmmm.. just measured mine from this recent drop, with 5 pieces (excluding the insert for alcohol burners - i.e. in wood stove mode, it weighs in at 101 grams. With all six pieces, it weighs in at 111 grams. Definitely wrong advertising at 79 grams. Although I'll be keeping mine, would be good to get the official statement from emberlit.
Also, future buyers beware!
I just received my FireAnt stove and was surprised that the weight was well over the 79 grams (2.8 ounces) advertised. With all six pieces in the case the weight is 129 grams (4.5 ounces). I thought I might have misread the specs but even just the four sides (without the esbit or bottom burner plates) it weighs 87 grams (3.1 ounces). Did I just get a "heavy" unit? Where did the weight on the website come from?

Hey guys, sorry for the delayed response. I did ask Emberlit about this and their answer seems legitimate. I mean, they're a small company and variances are probably greater there than a big brand like Snow Peak or Kovea. Anyways, here is their response, which is now stated in slightly more detail on their website too: "Due to metal industry standards, the raw materials can come to us in a thickness plus or minus 3/1000 inch. This gives the stove a know average weight of 2.8 oz, it can vary up to 25 percent. We are working to get this information updated on our website. Please have your customers contact us if they are dissatisfied with their purchase and we will do everything we can to make it right with them.

Would this serve as an effective wind screen for an alcohol stove (no need to carry a wind screen) ?
I very happily own this as well. I found this stove during the original Kickstater campain. It goes everywere with my hiking equipment cook kit. It places a trangia burner the perfect distance from the pot/kettle, which in turn boils water faster than some other alcohol burners/methods(tested). I have not used this particular model for buring wood, but see no reason for it not to be awesome at that as well, as that's its primary intended use. It weighs very little and packs away flat. I now need one for my day pack. I like this guy's creations - I already have my very own pair of "sprongs" as well!
