Scoutmaster here and because of that I end up using these type of camping stoves about 4 or 5 weekends a year. Although I have never used this one, you can find several on amazon at this price or less. Since their is nothing really special about the construction, getting one slightly cheaper at this price point should not make a difference, although I would avoid any that are sub $10.

2 concerns about this one:
Does not appear to come with a carrying case. While hiking, I keep my stove in a MSR pot with non stick coating, so having that metal in the pot is a no no.
Does not have a spark igniter. Yes these always go bad eventually (even on the high end ones) so you should always carry matches, but my spark thing lasted years before finally crapping out.

When you can find stoves at this price point with these needed features, why go with this one?

I have an exact same one I believe from the same OEM. It's actually sold under the brand name Fire Maple on AliExpress, which thru my quick investigation, is a reputable gear company in China.
Been very reliable and simmers beautifully which is a big plus. I've used it at higher elevations in Wyoming and Colorado (~10,000 ft), no problem at all. Probably one of the best ultra light stove there.

And yes, lack of an integrated igniter is bit of PIA but I always carry some devices to make sparks as you should. For $13 give it a try.

Not bad, that's very cheap for a very light stove. Lack of long term reviews is concerning though, unless it's just a car trip. For $4 more I'd suggest the BRS-3000, commonly found at Amazon, used by many in the backpacking world for several years now. Fairly reliable, widely tested, and at 1 oz it weighs a bit less.

The advantage to this Monoprice stove is the wider arms will more steadily hold a cup.

And if you're looking for heavy long-term usage, get a Soto Amicus.

Looks super stable but no piezo igniter if you need it. Still using my $8 etekcity special with the igniter though.

I have some experience with various little stoves like this. The lighter won't last long, but the stove will get the job done. Cheap stoves work OK most of the time, but some people spend $15 more or so to get a better name brand one with a longer warranty. But yes, these cheaper ones will work fine for the most part. Don't forget you have to find a non-windy spot to use these!

Wow. I have always wanted a jetboil but they are way too damn expensive. Definitely picking this up. Thank you

I have a brs and a 750 titanium pot which should be fine.
Grabbed this one to have the larger pot and "jet boil" type system. Good find.

I am going on my first 2 night backpacking trip and this jet boil knockoff was perfect timing. Thanks!

Have fun on the trip! If you don't mind, can you let us know how the MP model works out?
