Go Systems Venture
July 15, 2012
PRO’s: Lightweight & powerful, excellent flame control
CON’s: None that we can think of!
VERDICT: Superb lightweight, budget stove. Buy it!
The Go Systems Venture is Go Systems take on the classic lightweight cartridge stove. Weighing in at just 200 grammes it’s small but does it pack a punch ?
Oh yes! Size isn’t everything and this little stove is up there with the best of them. Sporting a 2500 Watt burner it’ll boil a litre of water in 3 minutes and will run for just under two hours on a mixed Butane/Propane Go Systems Powersource 125 gas cartridge. Like many other Go Systems stoves this will accept the larger Go Systems Butane/Propane gas canister such as the mid-sized Go Systems Powersource 220 gas cartridge and the larger Go Systems Powersource 445 gas cartridge.
Now power is one thing but it’s nothing without control and, thankfully, the Go Systems Venture has loads of control. The fold out flame adjuster is easy to grip and allows precise adjustment of the flame from a low simmer to a full on boil and anywhere in between.
The stove simply screws onto the cartridge and is lit by pressing the ignition button. Yep, that’s right, this little stove even includes piezo electric ignition.
One limitation of many lighweight stoves is that they can’t take large pots but the Go Systems Venture, thanks to its fold-out pot supports can. For small pots keep them folded in, for large pots just fold them out. The supports are serrated to prevent pot slippage too.
Like many canister mounted stoves, this one is prone to wind and will need to be sheltered behind a rucksack or similar although you could also use a small folding windshield.
Considering its price, what you get for your money (lightweight, folding pot supports, built-in ignition, excellent controllability of the flame) this is a no-brainer. Buy this stove if you’re after a lightweight stove and you’re on a budget. Oh, and it even includes a storage bag too.
Highly recommended !
