Optimus Nova+ is exactly what the name suggests, a stove with the performance of the original Optimus Nova - plus a little more. We've added the patent pending Powerline for precision flame control at a distance from the flame by simply twisting the fuel hose. Optimus Nova+ also offers the stability of wide pot supports that fold around the burner for packing convenience and its serrated burner arms assure that the pan stays in place. Details like EZ-coupling for quick connection of the burner to the pump, the quick priming burner, self-purging aluminium Flipstop pump and a built in magnetic cleaning needle make sure that user's outdoor experience are all good ones. No matter what the conditions, the Optimus Nova+ will cook up meals that make users feel right at home in nature.

Optimus Nova Plus is tops Review by Triple Crowner

Owned or experienced nearly every brand and model of liquid gas stoves on the market and the Nova Plus is the clear winner with its precise simmer, quick priming, metal pump, no drip fuel features, simplicity and durabilty. Just 15oz and fairly compact. MSR uses plastic pumps that WILL fail as designed to ensure repeat business in you buying a $35 replacement pump. Any stove company that sells along side their stoves a critical part like a pump for $35 should be an alarm to anyone with common sense that plastic is not a good material for it. Swedish designed or made stoves have always been the cream of the crop. Get a Primus or Optimus stove and you wont be sorry. BCGear has best price on extensive repair kit for only $20 plus $6 shipping.
