Backpackgeartest.org Reviews the Vargo Decagon Titanium Stove

Test Series by Derek Hansen


"The Vargo stove has really won me over as a very durable, long-cooking alternative to my other home-made alcohol stoves. I am very impressed with how long the stove cooks, which has made it possible to cook recipes beyond your typical boil-in-a-bag menu."

Do you have a question?  

Question: What is the fuel capacity of the decagon? How does it compare to the triad for burn time and diameter where the pot sits? 10 Oct, 2013
Answer: Both the Vargo Decagon and Triad alcohol stoves have a fuel capacity of about 1.5 ounces (44 ml) and approximate burn time of 20 minutes (though you can eek out a few more minutes on the Triad). The Decagon's burner diameter is 2.25" (57 mm) while the Triad's is 3.4" (86 mm) when the pot supports are fully extended. Both can pour unused alcohol neatly back into a fuel bottle by using a leg or the base plate as a guide.
Question: Hi. I bought decagon alchocol stove. I have tried to use it and so far...fire does't go through side small holes/muzzles. It looks like doesn't work properly. I will try again with fresh denatured alchocol. Old one is two years old. I strictly follow the instructions. May be stowe needs some special preparations befor use? best regards 18 Feb, 2014
Answer: The two typical reasons the Decagon won't fully bloom when used are: 1. It's not filled up all the way with fuel. It must be full enough that fuel rises above the weld in the inner well. 2. The fuel is not getting hot enough to vaporize and pressurize the stove which could be cause by poor fuel, cold outside temperatures, cold fuel temperatures, wind, etc.. Before lighting, try lightly spraying the outside of the stove with fuel then light the fuel. The additional flames this creates will help to speed up the priming process. Or trying warming up your fuel bottle by putting inside your jacket or shirt before use.
Question: What is the full diameter of the stove & stability plate. Need to know this to see if it fits in side my Toaks 1100ml pot - 115mm dia........Thanks! 06 Nov, 2014
Answer: The full diameter is the diameter of the stability plate which is 4.25" or 107 mm.
