Hikin_Jim's reporting is flawed. Takes others to make him see the light. If he pays attention, someday he'll get it right.
I think it's obvious the Soto's regulator orifice is smaller than the one it's compared to. As I pointed out, Soto says "almost" when it describes output..
Not only does the Cobalt jets ignite faster for more efficiency, it has the copper wick that makes it much easier to light in cold freezing temperatures.
I think it's cute how Bill Ballowe admits he added wick to make his stove design better.
