    Item # 821120

    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Soto Fill Adaptoris rated5.0out of5by1.
    Rated5out of5byfromGreat - Use your partial canistersIf you use a canister stove, sooner or later you will have a collection of partially used canisters. You may find yourself carrying several canisters on each trip to get them used up. A canister that holds 4 ounces of fuel weighs 8 ounces - so you could easily have an extra pound in your pack in order to use up these things. This is somewhat rediculous considering the effort and expense many of us go through to reduce pack weight. On the other hand you may find yourself feeling guilty about throwing partial canisters in the trash instead of recycling them. There are finally tools to allow you to recycle your EMPTY canister (such as Jetboil Crunch tool) - but these tools don't help you to get a canister empty without wasting fuel. Isobutane is a really good fuel. Put the Soto fill adapter on your partial canister and use the isobutane to refill your butane lighters. As a cigar smoker, I go through more butane than a typical person, however many campers/hikers carry refillable lighters with them. With this adapter you have a new use for the fueil in partial or almost empty canisters. The great thing about Isobutane is that it is better performing than the N-Butane sold in stores to refill lighters. N-butane and isobutane are isomers of each other (Basically, the same atoms make the molecules but they are arranged differently). Butane is a single chain whereas isobutane is made of a shorter chain with a branch. Due to the different arrangement, Isobutane has a lower boiling point, higher pressure, and burns more efficiently than than the N-butane (lighter fluid butane). Isobutane works better in low temperatures than N-butane, and by adding a bit of propane to the blend that some canisters have (with its -43F boiling point) you further enhance cold weather performance. I have used many brands of cansiters (Jetboil, MSR, Snow Peak, Coleman, Primus) to refill my lighters and had good luck with them all. This adapter will help save resources by not wasting fuel and making recycling your canisters more easy. It will also allow your lighter to perform better in the outdoors; a win-win.
