These should be sold for way more but I've wangled some for you guys at an absolutely bargain price. They are only available as surplus now. Read the reviews. Grab them quick, they won't be available for long as they sell out fast when available.

To us they are 50p per box of 3, only 16.6p per foiled block. Usually sell for a lot more, up to you if you want to sell them on.

I can ship 17 boxes (3 tablets in each box so 51 total) just under the 2kg limit for £8.50 + £3.50 P&P.

Obviously 17 boxes maximises for P&P and makes it straight forward for me but you can have more or less as you like. Have a whole case of 250 boxes (750 tablets) if you wish.

They have a way lower melting point than Hexamine so light using a firesteel. Each tablet is about 3.5"x1.5", averaging 33g. For outdoor use in a well ventilated environment, don't go sniffing them. ;)

Without trying to de-rail a sale, what's Trioxane like? Does it stink as bad as hexy's? Does it leave a mess on the bottom of yr pan?

Rob and I just had a go at heating a pan of water with it. What a fascinating solid fuel.

The block is an attractive Lilac colour with opaque white crystals growing out of it like an alien life-form. This is US Army surplus fuel but it certainly appears to burn perfectly well and lights by just showing it a mere flame or spark. Guaranteed to be easy light fuel or fire starter.

It burns with an almost invisible flame, virtually no odour and what you can smell is pleasant enough.

The fumes sting your eyes a little if you go sticking your face right in it but who does that, all solid fuels produce fumes you don't want to be snorting?

Leaves a residue at the point of burning but has a clean flame that leaves no soot on the bottom of your pan.

I can see why this has such good reviews on Amazon. Not like Hexamine at all.

As I've already said, due to combustion byproducts this is designed to be used outdoors in a well ventilated area, not indoors or in a tent.

These would work well with the BCB Firedragon folding stove from the other GB.

Many thanks, I used my last, very expensive one, this time last year. There's the tinder and ferro for fun, but the Trioxane just gets things going fast and is way easier than a stinky paraffin firelighter if you just want fire. And is a lot better to cook on than Hexamine.

These are now available but I've been working flat out and won't be back home from London until Tuesday night so I will have to work on these next week.
