A good way of reducing waste and getting the most out of your gas canister. Ideal for seeing how much gas is left and how much you will still be able to get out of it.
How far can a canister take you? Take the guesswork out of how much fuel you have left with the new JetGauge. A lightweight tool engineered to accurately measure the fuel level of any JetPower canister, it enables precision fuel planning and keeps you from running on empty. So stop shaking the can and hauling extra fuel you don’t need, and start stretching the fuel you carry further.
Jetboil's JetGauge Fuel Canister Scale is a pretty simple piece of kit. You set it according to the size of the canister you are measuring, attach it to your gas canister and it will tell you how much is left as a percentage. A simple table helps you understand roughly what percentage will give you a number of boils (which Jetboil says is the ability to boil a 500ml cup of water).
I couldn't begin to count the number of times I've guessed whether there is enough gas (or not) left in the canister to get me through the next trip. This has changed all of that but more importantly for me, it has cut down on waste. I no longer bin cans without checking that they have been completely emptied, I can usually squeeze one last round of drinks out of a canister now.
