Stove was £2.45 (with fuel) and extra tablets £1.25 for a pack of 24. A relative used to work were I bought them and I know the pricing policy so will be interested to see how much they are in a discount store over here.

btw for the food store I'll be taking a look at these tinned veg currys and getting a few if the use by dates aren't too near.

Stove is €4.49 (the blocks you get with them are known to spit and spark if you store them for long periods Ive used them)
tablets are €1.99
sleeping bags are €8.99

Avoid the 10-30 x 60mm binonculars, very poor quality and useless at anything above about 15x at 30x they are unusable even with a tripod. If you want cheap bins then wait for the 10 x 50mm's (always well under €20) which are excellent in comparison.

Anyone tried the Night Vision Scope?

Videos for Soild Fuel stoves - Like the one Aldi sell

Anyone who hasn't used a solid fuel stove like the one Aldi will have in might like a look at the video found here (page includes links to most of the makes of stove for comparison) and then you'll probably be looking for a tin mug and don't blame me when you burn your lips .

True, but why would you want to disconect it?

btw I have an old gas lamp that takes the same gas canister and its had the same canister in it for the last 5years and its still nearly full.

Its only really if you need to break a stove down into smaller parts for storage in a bob that might become an issue.

The biggest issue I have with any stove is the mess and smell many of them make, the hexy stoves being some of the worst in that respect and gas the cleanest so it has some advantages.

Personally id be using it in a BOB/camping bag and wouldnt want it connected all the time (im a smoker and dont want gas leaking just as i light up) If you want it for home use only once its stored right it should be fine
