This seems to be an upright A4 stove that was on dragons den due to its unnecessary(IMHO :) ) unique selling point:

it would take a long time to make back the cost savings on gas cartridges vs its price :) *

* I don't think its made any more anyway.

More info on the Tegstove: it definitely does take the cheap A4 Butane cannisters:

Surely, summer lightweight gas-loving campers should want a lightweight A4 stove (ie no adaptors needed)?

I was having a look for more info on this stove & found a link that Sports Direct have, at the time of typing this, some stock going for £38 (I must admit I'm tempted at that price).

Having decided that the bulk of the Alpkit Brukit didn’t suit my usage, I passed it on and replaced it with a Primus Lite Plus. It’s the smallest of the bunch and has some nice features, looks like its made to last and suits me perfectly.

Well a big percentage discount but I still wouldn't bother.

What attracts you to it?

An intermediate sized stove that runs off a cheap gas supply - I have a Trangia (which is my usual "self-propelled" cooking kit) & Campingaz 907 (their largest refillable cylinder) powered gas cookers (plus a 3 way fridge).

It seems well made & the thermocouple power generation side is an interesting feature.

Note I said "tempted", I've not actually succumbed (yet). :D
