Watch our instruction video to see the CampStove in action. Just as in starting any fire, it’s important to use dry wood. If it’s recently been raining, you may want to carry a little dry wood with you to get the fire started. Loosely fill the CampStove with twigs, without blocking the jets on the side of the fuel chamber.
We recommend using firelighters, and we’ve included some inside your package. After putting some twigs in the stove, just light the firelighter on one end and let it start burning. Then place the firelighter carefully inside the fuel chamber.
If you don’t have firelighters, you can also get the fire started by placing small twig shavings, dry grass, or birch bark at the top of the stove after filling it with twigs. The smaller shavings can be lighted with a match, and will help ignite the twigs.
After lighting, wait 10 seconds, and then push the power button on the CampStove. This sets the fan to LO and starts the flow of oxygen, which will help your fire get started quickly. The fan will not operate at High Speed until the probe senses heat.
