Kovea LPG Propane Adaptor

The Kovea LPG Adaptor is one of those Items that curiosity and camp “GEEKNESS” drove us to purchase.  The Kovea adapter allows us to run our canister gas type backpacking stoves off standard Green Coleman type 16.4oz/465g cylinders of 100% propane – the typical standard propane canisters that everyone uses for camping stoves and lanterns for car camping and backup use.

At a not so inexpensive price point (Under $25) using the Kovea adapter in theory will recoup you’re investment quickly by using cheaper more widely available Propane vs Isobutane.

Our intention is to run this little gem through the paces starting low and slow.  Speed in our camp is never a huge priority – unless your pitching a tent or packing/unpacking in the rain.  If you like to play with fire and please be careful – the Kovea LPG Adaptor might be worth a try.  Minimally the Kovea will provide you with a backup fuel source that is available much more widely than Isobutane.

The Kovea hooks up in seconds – fits well –  is solid and looks good.  We had no trouble starting up the stove and running a very generous flame.  Still the jury is out if the Kovea LPG Adaptor will work in the long run for all the LPG applications we have in mind.  For now – until further tested – the Kovea LPG Adaptor remains in the luxury/mystery camp kitchen accessory category for now.
