    Default Mega Monster Energy Drink Bottles

    Anyone done anything with these cans? All aluminum bottle with a screw on top that is wide mouthed to boot. They just look to nice to toss.

    Yes, I have been for around a year with the venom? Bottles, they do work just fine. If they are to close to the fire, they could melt the plastic ring at the base of the cap, but so far that hasnt happened to me yet. I dont use them much, they are something to throw in the car or a smaller kit for real emergencys.

    they make a really cool alchole stove i made one yesterday and it works really good. you use the bottom and the top for the top and you have a really nice screw lid for filing it up. just a thought.

    I could see one being made into a volcano stove! At least that's what I can see in my mind.

    When i made mine i goofed it up and cut the top to short. So I slid the top inside of the bottom instead and I think this is the way to do it cause The flame is much better than the other way. Dont know why but I works nicely.

    Good point wasn't counting how thin they are.

    They're much too thin-walled for anything but alcohol stoves, at least, as far as I recall.

    You can make a decent trangia stove clone out of them.

    Or, with a little more work, you can make a decent featherfire clone out of them.
