    Smaller than other stoves but works harder when it comes to heat output.

    Snowpeak GigaPower Stove with auto ignition is an incredibly small, lightweight, and convenient canister stove. Its 3.75 oz weight and nifty push button ignition helped the Snowpeak GigaPower with auto ignition win the Editor's Choice Award from Backpacker Magazine. This powerful little stove produces 10,000 BTUs (most camping stoves are 8-9,000 BTUs). Use this backpacking stove with Snow Peak fuel in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10° C). The Snow Peak Giga Power Stove is designed to stow with a fuel canister in a Snowpeak Solo Combo Cook Set. The Giga Power backpacking stove burns 45 minutes at maximum gas output (10,000 BTUs) with the GP-110 fuel canister. This lightweight, compact camping/backpacking stove comes in a high-quality plastic carrying case. Also available in a titanium version (our item no. SNO0004). **DOES NOT INCLUDE FUEL CANISTER.

    Always lights great

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Great for backpacking, I took mine out backpacking for 2 months straight used it everyday for every meal. Worked amazing every time, even when it was windy I never had a issue with lighting up, a wind cover is key for those windy days.

    Auto ignition is great!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is a really nice stove: its elegance and great performance bring a smile to my face every time I use it.



    I've had good experiences with this stove (using regular MSR canisters) from sea level up to about 3000m (10K feet) and in a range of temperatures down to about -5C -- definitely boils a lot faster at lower elevations, but that shouldn't come as a surprise.



    So yeah: all in all, this is one of my all-time favorite pieces of gear. Packs small, igniter lasts a long time, and works great. Highly recommended!

    Solidly built and always lights up

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I used to have the MSR Pocket Rocket but I didn't like it's bulky dimensions. I then happened upon this stove at an REI Garage Sale and i haven't turned back.

    Great craftsmanship, doesn't guzzle gas, and nests very well with a few different cooksets that I use.

    It's always lit up for me and I've never wanted anything about this to change. I really do *love* this stove.

    Very basic... But good.

      I find it is basically On or it is Off. The flame intensity is very consistent.. Consistent in the fact that it doesn't give you much of a simmering option when it is almost shut off or a real blast furnace when it is on full either.



      The little white plastic box that you store it in is a cool feature and the auto igniter is super useful. Works every time with mine. I was also pleasantly surprised how compact it folds up and yet how stable it is when opened up, screwed down on a fuel canister and has a pot on it.



      I have to admit I got mine used because yet another REI member decided to use it and return it. How do you go wrong at $4.97..? You can't. This thing will be used as my teapot stove at the job site this winter.

      The stove to get.

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      All through high school while backpacking with my dad, we used this stove. Always worked, always lit easily, and boiled water quickly and efficiently. It NEVER once let us down. Now, 8 years later, I'm finally backpacking again, and I've bought my own. It's the same stove, same design, same miniscule package and ease of use, and same dependability. It just works, and it works well. I'll be using it for a long time to come. I prefer it to analogous MSR stoves for reasons of stability of the pot, simplicity, and build quality. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.



      However, only runs on isobutane canisters, so if you need another type of fuel, it's not the most versatile.

      Everything a canister stove should be

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      This is the light stove I never worry about (the heavy one is a whisperlite international by MSR). If I'm just heading out overnight or car camping, I'll throw in a large partially used MSR canister, a small gigapower fuel canister, and a pot or two. Hasn't rusted in the NW or NE or Europe or parts of Asia with questionable fuel. Lighter always works, even in the cold. A couple years ago on a three week trip to the Tetons with 5 others, I failed to pack the big gas two burner, and we cooked on this. A big fry pan is tricky to balance, but almost everything else can be cooked on the the giga power.

      Awesome

        I am not able to compare this stove to any others as I have not owned any others but this one is very nice. The pot sits firmly on the four arms and the ignite is nice so I don't have to worry about using a lighter or matches (even though I carry them just in case). I have not 'needed' to use the windscreen yet but still use it to focus the heat, works very nicely. Boiled my two cups of water quickly. I have a GSI dualist set and the stove and fuel fix nicely inside.

        Great stove

          This stove is the epitome of lightweight and packable. Super hot yet easy to control the flame. The Auto ignition could be a little more reliable. after a few trips it became a test of perseverance to get it ignite :) However, before my next trip I cleaned the igniter and did some "service burns" and this helped out tremendously. If you dont use it you lose it :) Anyway. This is much better than having to use a separate refillable fuel bottle. Great product! Oh yeh......get the windscreen!

          Great stove, particularly with the windscreen disc

            I’ll preface this review with my cut and paste statement that I work as a backcountry backpacking guide in Yosemite National Park. Nearly all of the products I take the time to review have seen at least a half a season, if not more, of use... and I’m committed to not bothering to write a review until I feel like I’ve really gotten to know a product. I never thought I’d bother to write reviews, but I’ve recently decided that since I’ve spent so much time over these last many years reading reviews, and finding a tremendous amount of value in articulate and well-informed opinions, that I wanted to give back to the community. So, with that being said, here we go...

            I still own this stove, and the disc windscreen that goes with it, but I've retired it for the most part, and have turned to the Snow Peak LiteMax. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, but they are similar enough that either one is a great choice. My preference is with the LiteMax, only because I'm a gram weenie.

            This stove is bit better at getting to a boil more quickly, and using fuel more efficiently, mainly because of the available windscreen. I wouldn't bother going with this stove if you're not going to buy (or make) a windscreen. But, for God's sake, if you're going to make one, please know what you're doing. Isolating heat from the fuel can is key. Just buy the Snow Peak screen for this and you're good to go.

            The auto ignition is convenient, but shouldn't be an excuse to not pack a lighter or matches. I've never had an issue with it, but I've never had it down to anything below the low 20s or high teens.

            Another advantage of this stove, aside from its efficiency with the windscreen, is its stability with slightly larger pots and pans. The LiteMax uses three very small folding arms. With anything other than a smallish mug you have to really watch it. This stove, having four arms that are slightly larger, means it accommodates larger pots and pans. I wouldn't plan on throwing a full size pot with a gallon of water on this, but you could conceivably cook for two on this stove. The LiteMax can't handle that.

            In short, if you're just boiling water for you for some oatmeal or dehydrated meals, and are like me and count ounces, grab the LiteMax. If you want a little more stability and efficiency, and the capability to use *slightly* larger cookware... pick this up. You won't lose either way.

            Best Stove I Know

              I just bought a second one of these (first one remains with my equipment in the US, this one with my equipment in Russia). I just don't think there is a better stove out there. I have had problems in extremely cold weather (below -20C) getting the auto igniter to work. Obviously spark gap is affected by temperature and I couldn't keep my hands warm outside of gloves to adjust it properly. But I always carry matches and that solves the problem of extreme cold.

                  Best stove I have ever used.

                    I took my Snow Peak GigaPower Stove Auto Ignition
                    on a Search and Rescue mission in the Rocky Mts.
                    and it performed fantastic we were out for four nights and five days only used 1 canister of fuel.
                    The Auto Ignition worked everytime no need to
                    worry with wet matches or lighters, cooks really fast
                    and takes the chill out of the tent at the same time.

                    neat lil stove

                      This lil snow peak stove fits well in my gsi halulite minimalist pot with a small fuel canister, and still more room. I love the igniter and flame pattern, only down side is even in a light breeze the flame is cut down to almost half. When used with snow peak fuel flame controll and boil tome are both impressive, although when used with other fuels it becomes hard to dail flame down. Id reconmend this stove to anybody who wants a versitile canister stove that folds up tiny but has big performance.

                      neat lil stove

                      Good stuff!

                        I carried this lightweight stove for my entire thru-hike of the AT. I used it almost everyday for 5 months straight and never had a problem with this stove. I never used a wind shield and had great fuel efficiency with this little guy. One of the bees things I liked about this stove is that you can adjust the flame to cook pancakes or let er rip for just a straight boil. I mean serious controlled cooking can be done with this guy. No maintenance needed and still going strong after 2200 miles and another 120 with the wife couple months ago! GET IT!

                        Is it normal for the pot supports to glow...

                        Is it normal for the pot supports to glow orange when the stove is running?

                        do all fuel canisters work with this...

                        do all fuel canisters work with this model/

                        Hi Carol,

                        Yes, all the major brands like MSR, Snow Peak, Jetboil, Primus, Brunton work just fine. The only requirement you need to worry about is that it has a Lindal Valve (EN 417 specs). No worries. If anyone, anywhere, carries any brand that meets those requirements, you have a compatible canister.

                        How much Fuel should I bring on a 5 day...

                        How much Fuel should I bring on a 5 day trip. I plan on cooking for breakfast and dinner. I have two 220g fuel canisters and I am only cooking for myself. Is this enough?

                        Thanks!

                        Best Answer

                        If it's warm enough out (40F-ish+), one 220g canister will be plenty for 5 solo days. Even if you double the 3.5 minute boiling time per liter in the specs, you're still only talking about 70 minutes of burn time on a canister that should give you at least 90 minutes. Not cooking on high is also a much more efficient way to use fuel. If it makes you feel more secure, go ahead and bring the second canister, but don't be surprised when it comes back completely full.

                        Just want to second what Phil said. A 220 gram canister should be plenty. I have done several longer trips, 6 & 7 days with the same size canister and have never come close to running out. If there are others in your party carrying the same size canister, you probably don't even need a backup as their extra fuel would probably get you through the trip, but if you're solo definitely bring a backup just in case.

                        This question has a few variables mainly due to elevation, temperature, & wind conditions. For instance @ higher elevations, above 11,000 ft, I use 9 to 13 grams of fuel per usage for 16 oz. of water. Eight ounces of fuel is equal to 226 grams. So for me, I get between 18 & 26 uses from one 8 oz./220 gram canister. If you use your stove four times a day, an 8 oz. canister will last approximately 5 to 7 days max. I hope this helps.

                        I need to update my stove. I was looking at this little guy & the GigaPower Lite Max the BTU output is a little different, so boil time & overall burn length is different, but I'd like to know if anyone has experience with both or would vehemently recommend one over the other.

                        Best Answer

                        Both stoves work great but the "Lite Max" is two ounces lighter. I received an LM for Christmas & have been using it exclusively this year so far. The BTU difference is actually +1,200 for the LM. It boils water quickly & simmers down to almost nothing. If the auto ignition is not a factor, I'd go with the Lite Max (LM).

                        BTW, I tightened the pot support extensions on the Lite Max with a pair of channel locks @ the pivot point. They get a little loose after the first couple of uses & drop below the stops.

                        Do you have to use a special iso/butane with this stove if so want other stoves have to use special fuel??? as stated by the rater?Good stove overall butBy: RayHon (5) May 31, 2007 good stove overall but the power source should be universal so that in a pinch I should be able to use other sources rather than exclusively Snow Peak canister. Make the power source universal, please

                        Best Answer

                        Many different stoves use isobutane blended fuel. Some stoves such as the MSR XGK & Dragonfly can use different liquid fuels such as unleaded & white gas, diesel, & kerosene. The Snow Peak GigaPower stove will accept any Lindal valve (screw-on) fuel canister.
