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

    Snowpeak GigaPower Stove with manual ignition is an incredibly small, lightweight, and convenient canister stove. This powerful little stove weighs just 3.25 oz but 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 GigaPower Stove is designed to stow with a fuel canister in a Snowpeak Solo Combo Cook Set. The GigaPower 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.

    Not as good as the Soto Windmaster!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this for the PCT but didn't end up using it except for a few times this year to test it out. I opted for the much lighter and more practical SOTO Windmaster stove. The giga is about an oz heavier than the Windmaster and doesn't have a lip that prevents heat loss. Efficiency is therefore not as good because the distance from flame to pot is greater on the snowpeak and you need to make or buy a windscreen, adding more weight to your cook setup. If you want to go light to ultralight these are important considerations since you'll be using more fuel, waiting longer to boil, and buying the larger canister for 4-6day sections. The soto comes in at 2.0 oz and has a built in piezo igniter like the jet boils. This stove doesn't :( It is about 50$ on sale, and their customer service when my igniter broke (after 2K miles) was bomber. They pretty much replaced my whole setup. Get this stove on your shelves Backcountry!No, i'm not a soto rep. just a fan of awesome gear.

    Excellent Backcountry Stove

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We recently purchased a MSR Pocket Rocket but needed a second stove for our backcountry meals. Our Backcountry.com guy, Ben Rabinowitz, recommended this stove and we are glad he did. Compared side by side with the Pocket Rocket we find the GigaPower stove has better pot stability and better flame control especially when cooking on a simmer. The two most important stove features for us. The seal seams a bit better with the PocketRocket and we did have an issue with the GigaPower attaching to one of our propane canisters, but the canister was a decade old. We now use the PocketRocket for boiling water and the GigaPower for more precise cooking.

    Excellent Backcountry Stove

    Solid Little Stove

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Really, my title pretty much sums it up. This stove is super sturdy. There's not much on here to break! It's super lightweight. I keep it in my mess kit and forget it's there. And it works great. It throws a healthy flame, but simmers great too. I've never had any problems with it. Do I wish it had an ignitor sometimes? Sure! But it's not that big of a deal. I just cram a Bic in the carrying case. It's a tight squeeze, but do-able.

    Gigapower

      Bought this for long skimo missions to melt water. Works well with my Ti snowpeak pot and a small gas cannister. All fits together into the pot. It doesn't melt as fast as my Reactor but it packs up smaller and lighter. Definitely a balance when deciding what is the priority. Still experimenting to determine the water/gas ratio.

      Small ,light but powerful.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love that this stove is light and small enough to take on a quick overnight, but has the power and long fuel burn time for lone trips.

      It can hold pots very well for its size.

      The Best

        There's a reason that there are more reviews on this stove than any other and it's the same reason that these are "temporarily out of stock" as I write this review .... It's the best. Small, light, bullet proof and powerful. Buy the wind screen ... it will come in handy.

        How stable is this stove with a 1 or 1.5 liter pot? Will the flame concentrate in the middle and burn the food in the middle of the pot? OR does it spread out and evenly cook the whole pot?

        Best Answer

        Hey Sas,



        I've used this stove with the GSI Pinnacle Dualist, which is a 1.8L pot, and I've had no issues with it spot heating. I've used the pot for boiling pasta, cooking oatmeal, "sauteeing" vegetables, and cooking/heating stews. I'd say this stove has a pretty even flame pattern, although you won't be able to have the simmer control that a MSR Dragonfly would have.



        Let me know if you have any other questions or want to place an order.

        How easy is it to find canisters on the AT or CT? I assume you can't mail these in drop boxes.

        So with this stove fitted to an 8oz. Iso pro fuel canister about how much cooking time will you get.

        Best Answer

        One 8 oz. canister lasts me an average of 10 days. Each day consists of of boiling 2 and a half to 3 cups of water. Water tempature will affect this, ice cold water will take much more fuel to heat. If you can get in the habbit of carrying water for cooking on the outside of your pack on warm days and inside your jacket on cold days, you will be able to conserve fuel greatly.
