Edelrid Cooking Technologies's Puncture Cartridge Adaptor converts a puncture type gas cartridge to be able to take a screw on stove. Handy piece of kit for when you don't know what type of gas will be available at your destination.
Edelrid Cooking Technologies says:
With this adapter you can use any manufacturer's screw on cartridge stove with puncture style cartridges widely available in Europe and many other parts of the world.
Puncture-style cartridge adapter. With this adapter, Edelrid stoves work with all commercially available puncture-type gas cartridges.
I've struggled in some parts of Europe to get the screw type gas cartridges, whereas the puncture style cartridges are available in most supermarkets in many mountainous areas, especially in the Alps and the Pyrenees.
On one trip I ended up buying a stove designed to use the puncture cartridges because that was all I could find, the stove weighed more than this adaptor and my screw in stove put together!
If you want the best chance of being able to get gas easily then carry one of these from Edelrid, think of it like your first aid kit; you may never need it, but if you did then you'll be bloody glad you carried it!
Works with most screw in gas stoves, however we have discovered that it doesn't work with the MSR Superfly stove, though it does work with the MSR Pocket Rocket and MSR Simmerlite stoves.
