QUESTION: Will your adapter work with a Jetboil Jetpower canister?
ANSWER: Yes, our adapter connects to the type typically know as; ‘threaded,’ C100, C500, CA500 or ‘normal.’ However these are rarely marked very well. The Jetboil Jetpower canister is the same type and we have used them with the nCamp Gas Adapter.

QUESTION: What is better, pure propane or a mixture?

ANSWER: Pure propane is best for colder temperatures, but the canister is typically much heavier and have a different type of connection (although adapters are available). There are different mixtures (like Isobutane-Propane) that are designed for different conditions or to balance weight and performance. The best thing is to read what the mixture is designed for and determine if it best fits your use conditions.

QUESTION: I don’t like the disposable canisters so I ordered a refillable 16 oz bottle that can be filled from a 20 lb bottle. Can I use the nCamp Gas Adapter with the refillable bottle?

ANSWER: We’re with you on this. It always seems wasteful to dispose of the canister, so we recommend recycling (completely empty, then puncture). That said, we’re not refilling experts and we suggest following the procedure recommended by the manufacturer of the canister you purchased. We have not used our adapter on a refillable canister, so we aren’t sure if it will work.
