Your saying the basic canister such as (Coleman etc.) don't work well with the Pocket Rocket Stove? Am I reading that correct? Is it the heating factor, the screwing on of the stove?
Yep, that's basically it, except it's not a matter of "well", it's a matter of not at all. The two are completely incompatible. It's not that it wouldn't burn straight propane, it's that the threads on a Coleman canister won't work. The Pocket Rocket uses a much smaller Lindal Valve (EN 417 with a valve that's 7/16" diameter).
