So there was a review of an issue with the starter
The relevant wording quoting from Brett Haydin:
"The piezoelectric starter was a little problematic early on for me. I found it extremely difficult to rely on it to start my stove; at times it took a dozen tries before I could get an ignition. It was on my last trip that I finally managed to get it down. I happened to talk to a Jetboil staff member and described my challenges. He explained to me that there is a "perfect orientation" of the wiring that ensures near perfect reliability. First, the wire should be pointed towards the center. Second, he told me I could bend the wire up or down to find a reliable distance; he assured me it shouldn't break if I am careful. In any case, there is extra wire I can pull through if it does. When I went back into camp, I inspected my wire and sure enough, it was skewed to one side. Once I pointed it dead center, it has been a one-click-start every time! "
I'm willing to give a shot, I just parted with $101 hopefully for something more reliable than a 0.8L Ti pot on an ornament calling itself a stove. :)
I'm also thinking now about a Caldera Cone system as a fallback to put around the Jetboil Sol Ti pot in event I suffer canister/stove type issues. I can see it my mind's eye and I'm sure its already thought of and someone already tried it, I just not looked around yet. But, a cone which not going up the full height of the Jetboil pot, so will need some pegs to hold it, will make a cone short enough to fit inside the pot or at least wrap around it, say inside the sleeve? and a Gramcracker and say 2 Esbit cubes will fit inside if you're not carrying the pot stand???
"Jetboil contains a cone 2-meal backup" ? Useful in event of mechnical damage, in case you misjudge cannister capacity, add say 50g-70g type weight?
I should start a thread on that exactly that topic really.
