that's why I went for a the Ti version - strength and durability. Even though I paid $102 delivered for mine which is less than the $149+tax MSRP, it was still I think about $20 more Ti than Alu. $102 is still a lot, compared to say a Caldera Cone. That strength in the Jetboil system protects the stove in transit, in my case with the bumps of bike touring.
I used Alu pots for decades, they don't last as long, they are softer and the metal pits over time. The metal is sufficiently thin the Alu version I had longevity concerns. Steel and Ti will last longer. I expect mine will fail first in the stove part before the pot fails, possibly in that future year its a serviceable part but I doubt it. The pot itself has some uses beyond the stove, you can make a Cone sidewinder for it and we've seen some good boil times in a cone.
I think boil times will very similar Alu vs Ti due to the same Fluxring base. Has anyone done say 5 different boil time tests using the same stove and just the Alu vs Ti pot swapping?
Is the to-the-hand temperature of the Ti going to be lower than the Alu to hold the pot? Ti not transmitting the heat through the liquid contents as quickly? The Ti pot's coolness I find impressive through the relatively thin cosy/handle.
