I made a coke can or soda can stove and wanted to compare it with a trangia SVEA swedish military burner. the coke can burner performed better in terms of POWER output but lacks the option of heat control that you get with a trangia and simmer ring.

I had a think about it when i made my coke can stove and decided to more or less copy the trangia so it's about the same height and most important of all it has the double wall design and a wick between the walls like the trangia. the wick is key.

I carry and use both, picking whichever is better for what im doing at the time: coke can burner is best for boiling up to one liter of water because it is faster than the trangia due to faster warm up and higher POWER output. If im boiling more than 1L, its very windy or if i want to simmer what im cooking then i use the trangia for its heat control with the simmer ring and its larger fuel capacity.

"Penny stoves" with no double wall are a COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME! they are very difficult to get warm and impossible to get warm if it's very windy. you need a double wall design to make it effective. A double wall design will work without a wick but will warm up faster with a wick (made out of a cotton J-cloth, old T-shirt or something or fibreglass).
