It is very good for heating a small area.
Wonil K.
I have used the heater on 3 different camping trips to keep my tent warm and it works very well.

I would recommend buying the accessory hose and hooking a small propane tank to it.

I bought two of these heaters a year ago for emergencies and they have been sitting in their box ever since. But, when hurricane Sandy knocked out power, they more than paid for themselves. I got them for winter storms and never thought I'd be using them in cold weather after a hurricane. They worked exactly as advertised. These are not whole house heaters. They are great room heaters and make life much more comfortable in an emergency. They have several safety features but I also have a carbon monoxide detector that I keep in the room with them. It's probably like wearing suspenders and a belt but it makes me more comfortable to have a detector as an extra safety precaution. In my emergency supplies I also have a camp stove and lantern. These all take the same one pound propane bottles. I keep a case of the gas bottles on hand. This gives me heat, light, and hot coffee in the morning. I don't like it when the electric goes out but I try to get into the camping trip mentality and make the most out of an uncomfortable situation. These heaters helped me do that and stay comfortable.

If you fulltime in an RV, you know about cold days & nights. Maybe you want to warm the bedroom before showering, or maybe you want to warm your tootsies while watching DWTS. This "Portable Buddy" will do the trick for short bursts of heat.

I'm amazed to say the sides & bottom remained cool to the touch ("cool" as in room temp) after a full hour of use. Of note: it didn't heat a glass of cold water touching its side. Indeed, the LP can on the other side got cold enough to attract condensate! No gas smell during use.

It includes an oxygen sensor among its multiple failsafes -- but take care when using it in an RV bedroom. If you put it on a dresser, it could melt your ceiling. Also, your bedroom will heat up VERY quickly, so please don't leave it unattended.

Disposable LP cans cost a lot, but right now I only plan to use it for spot applications. In the future, though, I'll look at a refillable 4lb tank to make it cheap to operate.

Got this to use in my tent on a scout camping trip and it works great. Only pain is changing the small propane bottle in the middle of the night when it runs out! Probably worth getting the optional connectors to hook it up to a bigger tank.

Mr. Heater sure heats up a room, and it works fast, too. The only problem is that the portable propane canisters don't last long; only about 6 hours on low and 3 on high. With the 20-lb tank and connecter, it's a 5-star product.

I purchased a Mr. Heater for a cold weekend hunting trip. It worked really well and kept us nice and warm. The only complaint I have is that it's relatively easy to blow the pilot light out. I only plan to use mine inside a trailer or tent. A side note, for me, a 1 lbs propane tank lasted for 3 hours...

Safety first: Never leave this heater unattended when operating, and never use it in a confined space without at least one carbon monoxide detector nearby.

I bought this at a local retailer two days before Sandy arrived on the East Coast. I figured, even if we lost power, and it didn't get cold, I would leave it in the box and might return it.

Well...We lost power. And it got cold, quick. It was a wise purchase.

Shortly after firing this heater up, my wife, who is always cold, threw off the covers, saying, "Now I'm too hot." The room we used it in is in the 200-year-old section of the house with old drafty windows. So we had plenty of "ventilation" with 50mph sustained winds and higher gusts, yet the infrared / heat this heater throws out was enough to make the room as warm as we needed it. I turned it down to Low after about 20 minutes, and then Off before bed. We didn't shut the doors of the room to the hallway and the adjacent room, because I wasn't sure if it would generate fumes or an odor, and I was also concerned about the fact that it does consume oxygen / emit carbon dioxide. It did emit fumes, but only for the first few minutes of use, which is to be expected with a brand new unit. The temperature inside was probably in the low 60s, upper 50s when we turned it on. After half an hour, it was closer to the upper 60s, low 70s. The room measures about 12'x18'.

The following night, I drove the Buddy to my grandmother's apartment, and warmed up her place noticeably within less than an hour. It did not produce any fumes or odor. Luckily, the power came on while I was there, so I didn't have to leave it with her.

I've since decided the old kerosene heater is too dangerous and too inconvenient.

I have been using a portable heater for the Green House to keep things at 48 degrees when the temperatures go below that;however, the lowest heat raises the temperature to 66 at 40 degrees and the middle setting bring the temperature from 34 to 75 degrees. I needed something dependable and 4,000 BTU and 9,000 BTU might just heat my green house, 12 feet by 12 feet, and not caused any leaf yellowing or bloom drop.
It was the answer.
The Heater is well made, enamel and should not give me any rust problems. It is light in weight, about 2.5 lbs, and has a low oxygen alarm and will turn off if the stove turns over. I hook it up to a propane gas hose with a leak detector on the propane tank. Turning on the heater is a breeze. I move the dial from shut to pilot light, and push down the dial which gives a spark and the pilot lite goes on. I count to 30 and move the dial to the low setting. The ceramic plate turns to a faint pink glow and I wait a minute to make sure it does not go out. I get about 5 hours on a pound of propane. The temperature raises about 12.5 degrees and holds it there. If the outside temperature is 36 degrees, I will stay at 48 in the green house. If it gets to 34 or 35, I need to go to high, which raises the temperature about 15 degrees, to 49 degrees. The plants are happier. I bought a second such Heater in case we have a problem and the temperature goes into the 20 degree range. It has happened in the past but only rarely. I think two heaters can handle that, one on high and one on low. The prior heater used half a lb. of propane an hour so this heater is a money saver. I read that the heater does not get hot on the outside and it is true. This is a fantastic product.
