    I'm after a replacement for my existing stove, an Alpkit Koro that's developed a fault (the second one) and which I've got no trust for any more.
    Something small, light and with a pre-heat tube comparable to the Koro. Anything spring to mind?

    Kovea Spider is light, robust, folds down small, has pre-heat tube and comes with a separate piezo igniter. Costs a bit more than a Koro but not greatly expensive.

    If for small pans, Kovea spider. Bit heavier, but more solid and packable flatter and a good rep.

    Assuming that your failed Koros also disqualifies other versions of the FMS118, I think I'd probably go for the Optimus Vega, on account of a similar wide burner, and the integrated canister prop.

    I've been using a Kovea Spider off and on for last 18 months, mostly for Winter use, and can't fault it. Small burn area, but I mostly use small pots anyway.

    Sounds like a bit of a no-brainer then. Kovea Spider it is.
