Tip over sensor is very sensitive and can be easily triggered by slight movement of the unit. Unless you are handling the unit a lot once it is fired up, you shouldnt have any issues with its sensitivity. 3 hours of run time on High and up to 6 hours on Low setting from a 1 lbs Propane canister. 20 lbs tanks provide up to 100 hours of heat depending on setting.
We have run into issues where the Heaters will not remain lit when using in conjunction with a 12 foot hose and 20lb Propane Tank. We have found that the Temperature of the tank has an impact on Propane flow, and this can cause a bit of starving. With a little patience, we have been able to get the heater to work consistently if we let the line fill as well as keeping the tank as warm as possible. I also clean the pilot port with Isopropyl Alcohol after every camping trip.
Fast and convenient deployment makes this a great heater for someone that needs portable heat. We have safely and successfully used this heater on multiple trips in our Ground Tents, Rooftop Tents, and Camper.
The only drawback is the exposed flame in the element. Our family has always had Australian Shepherd dogs and they are very bright. We inherited my mother in-law's Golden Retriever and it's the first time we've ever had a dog with a tail. She is completely loyal and a great dog, but she's as dumb as a bag of hammers. She loved the comfort of lying in front of these heaters, but twice on this trip she caught her tail on fire. Nothing very bad happened, but it seems like this could cause something horrible. Or maybe I worry too much.
So this year I purchased a Mr. Buddy heater and 8 1lb canisters of propane, and put them in my stand well before the season started.
Last weekend, I walked to my stand at 5:15 a.m. in 30 degree temps. Not super cold for some of you snow-loving freaks up in Wisconsin, I know...but plenty cold for this Texas boy. Climb into my 4x6 stand (with metal roof), and the first thing I do (after setting down my rifle and backpack), is to start up this little heater.
Screwed in a canister of propane, pushed down the pilot and it lit on the second try. Held the pilot down for about 15 seconds, and then placed on low. And then sat back and waited.
About 5 minutes later, I removed my jacket and long-sleeved thermal shirt. Then watched as the frost on the windows started melting away. Within 15 minutes I was toasty warm, even with two windows cracked open a few inches.
The only draw back? Fighting off the sleepy's waiting on the sun to rise and the deer to show up.

Anyway, it was freezing and I pulled this out, which we got for camping, to use in the interim. Was I impressed. Kept the cold out and worked perfectly for it's small size.
Only gripe is nothing to do with the heater, but the cylinders, I went through two to three a day and they are expensive. You can refill them from a propane cylinder which would make it much cheaper to run.
