A couple comments: the brass LPG adapter package states this is compatible with Kovea products and may not work with other manufacturer’s products. The brass adapter also has a pressure adjustment screw which one can adjust between winter and summer use. It works great with any of the Kovea stoves I own. It is not compatible with the Soto Amicus’ or Windmaster I own (unable to screw on or loose fit).

Hmm... doing some research, it is apparently not a good idea to use propanes and adaptors with stoves that has a regulator, i.e. a soto windmaster, etc... see this page.. fellow MD outdoor experts any second opinions on this? https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-g-works-adapter-100-propane-for.html

Any from Australia can comment on whether this works with the butane gas canisters we get from kmart or bunnings?

Totally different adaptor. This one works with those small Coleman ones we get at camping stores, however the no screw butain ones need a different one. Kovea does make one though.

Yes it should. They are propane canisters and so are the Coleman ones

Shame to hear about this adapter's spotty compatibility, (damaging JetBoils etc) and I agree with past commenters calling for a redesign.
In the meantime, it seems like this model will work just fine with my Soto Amicus, and I plan to scoop one up unless anyone out there's had a negative experience?

I have neither this exact adapter nor an Amicus I have a similar looking knockoff adapter and a Microregulator and a Windmaster. Neither of those stoves will screw onto the knockoff adapter. (The wider base with the o-ring will not slip down into the adapter) Since I have neither, I can't say for sure if an Amicus will screw onto this adapter or not. A commenter on Adventures In Stoving claims it will not: https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-g-works-adapter-100-propane-for.html?showComment=1490566802530#c1887223693650641039

Thanks for the helpful reply.

Can someone that owns both this adapter and a Soto Windmaster give a definitive answer as to whether or not they're compatible? I'm not as concerned about pin length. I realize I can cheat that. I'm more concerned about whether or not the Windmaster will even screw onto this adapter. The reason I ask is because I have a knockoff adapter. So far I've only tried it with MSR MicroRocket, Pocket Rocket 2, Snow Peak LiteMax, an old Snow Peak GigaPower, Primus ETA remote canister burner, Soto Windmaster and Soto MicroRocket. The knockoff works fine with all except the Soto stoves, which won't even screw on. Their relative dimensions look similar enough to cause me to doubt this Kovea would do any better. In this image, the knockoff is on the left, the Kovea on the right. My Sotos will not screw onto the adapter on the left. Am I wrong in doubting I would have different results with the adapter on the right (the Kovea)?

BTW, I'm not saying I won't use the adapter. It will come in handy to save fuel, during post-hurricane power outages etc. Still, it would be nice to have one that also worked with my favorite burner. :_)

I'm pretty sure Hiking Jim has mentioned not using these adapters with regulated stoves as the pressure in a propane canister is much higher than a isobutane canister, and you might damage the regulator.

Yeah, I think I read that too but had forgot. I guess it's just as well it doesn't fit then. :)

Other than weight savings is there any reason to buy the aluminum over the brass?

Be careful! This adaptor can damage the gas inlet on the stoves, they have ruined 2 of my jetboil stoves. I want to like this adaptor but it damages some stoves while working fine with others. In my opinion it’s a defective and unreliable design, as you can see on line it only works with some stoves, not all stoves as per the claim on this site.

It’s real simple. A Jetboil or any other stove can screw onto any can of gas and work just fine, however if you screw your stove onto a Kovea adaptor it might work or it might wreck your stove.
All Kovea need to do is make their adaptor shaped more like cans of gas, a more tolerant design, and then the stoves might screw onto the adaptors without problems. However the current design of Kovea adaptors will probably destroy some stoves as the Kovea adaptor is not the same shape as a can of gas.
As as I said before, my Jetboil worked perfectly on a variety of cans of gas but the Kovea adaptor grabbed the brass nipple right out of the end of the stove - unrepairable damage resulted. On inspection it was obvious that the Kovea adaptor had a much smaller diameter hole in its centre than most gas bottles - the Kovea adaptor is likely to be an interference fit on many stoves while gas bottles are a clearance fit.
And as as I said before, a simple design change would mean that the Kovea adaptor would more resemble the shape of the gas bottles it’s meant to be replicating, and THEN the Kovea adaptor would function correctly and be an excellent buy.
I really want to buy one of these adaptors that actually works as advertised without risking destroying expensive stoves.

My stoves all work on MSR, Gigapower, Optimus and Primus cartridges. (all I can think of that I've tried for sure)The only ones I've ever had problems with are "some orange label" Coleman cartridges. So... I avoid Coleman.
With all the conflicting reports on this adaptor I'll have to avoid it too. Unfortunate since in theory, it's a good idea. Not worth risking throwing money away on something that may or may not work.
This shouldn't be a buy it and see situation. It should "Just work". And without having to "workaround" a problem that should never exist in the first place.
Hopefully a redesign is in the works. ◕‿◕

MD, could you please confirm titanium model isn’t just chrome plated brass?! There’s no reference that VA-AD-0701 comes in Ti version. how can this be Ti at 105g weight? Titanium would easily half that weight.

Thanks for calling this out. There was some miscommunication when we were updating the page - we are offering an aluminum adaptor OR brass adaptor. They do not make this in titanium. Anyone who purchased the incorrectly labeled version, will be emailed by our customer service team.

These adaptors are made of Aluminum and the silver color one is made of brass, just want to clarify this for MD customers.

I love Massdrop, but similar items are WAY cheaper on Ebay, directly from China, where they all are likely made. Mine works fine.

Just a note, Kovea is actually a boutique stove OEM. Most of the fancy stuff like Snow Peak, Soto, etc are made by Kovea since manufacturing in South Korea is cheaper but at the same time also easier to maintain quality control than in China.
