    Nice review Tim! Two things that may be worth mentioning:
    1. The handle of the lite+ can be pulled over the lid and attached across to stop the lid from dropping while on the move, and a string can be attached so that the cooker can be hung from eg a tree whilst in use.
    2. There’s a larger optional pot (I.e. Lite XL) with the same bayonet attachment, that boils/simmers a meal for two.

      Thanks for mentioning those Gustav. The handle working as a strap over the lid is definitely a nice feature. I’ve not tried the hanging kit yet but liked that it was included as standard.

    Hi Tim,

    This may be a stupid question, but I’m new to all of this. I live in the states but am camping all over Europe for the next 6 months. If I purchase this Primus Lite+ in Norway…do gas canisters all over the world work with it? Are those standardized? (Please say yes)

    Thanks for your help. This article was very very useful.

      Hi Gail,

      There are a few different types of gas canister across Europe actually.

      I’ve written a guide to them all here: http://thenextchallenge.org/camping-gas-canister-stoves/#canisters

      You can buy adaptors for them: http://thenextchallenge.org/camping-gas-canister-stoves/#adapters

      Let me know if I can help any further.
