Optimizing the Optimus 123R

The Optimus lives up to its reputation for ease of operation. Instead of using the aluminum cup and handle that comes with the stove, consider pairing the stove with a cooks set or metal double-walled cup that the stove fits into. Consider the Snow Peak Titanium Mini Solo Cookset which also comes with a net storage bag. Also get a fuel bottle that holds the amount of white gas you will use plus some extra for unexpected needs.

Good advice in general! Just remember that if you are using a double walled cup you cannot use it to heat water on the stove!

Cannot be stressed enough - do not put a double wall cup on a stove!
