Summary
Uses 8oz butane canisters that can be hard to find. On the positve-side, they are inexpensive (~$2/ea) and will last for ~5 hours on high-power. Most popular indoor/outdoor LP heater for camping tents, fishing shelters, campers, camper shells, RV’s, tent trailers, and hunting blinds/shelters. Same great features and safety mechanisms as the std. “Buddy” but with twice the heating power and the addition of a built-in blower fan to distribute the heat in larger spaces. High-power directional radiant heat for open-sided, large tents & canopies. Overkill for smaller enclosures and tents. High-power 360 degree radiant heat for open-sided, large tents & canopies. Overkill for smaller enclosures and tents.
