Mr. Buddy Heater

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.
Smart last minute purchase before Sandy

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.
Invaluable during our camping

This thing works like a dream. I bought this for a recent camping trip. Around 1am at the campsite, the temperature dropped to the low-mid 50’s (September in Southern California). Since the daytime high was in the 90’s, this 40 degree temperature drop was enough to make my family feel like we were camping in the Arctic Circle. That’s when I turned on Mr. Heater to the lowest setting and within minutes our tent was nice and toasty (8 person tent).
These totally saved us

We have a 45 foot RV toy hauler and the rear garage isn’t very well insulated and the heating vents don’t work so well back there. I bought two of these for Christmas and put one back there and used the other next to my son’s bed. These things were amazing. With two of these running on low (so the fuel would last most of the night), the thermostat almost never flipped on and our furnace hardly ran. It was down below freezing over the New Year weekend and these heaters kept us comfortable. We were camping for a week and I was afraid we would burn through our large LP tanks if we ran the furnace too long. These really helped us conserve LP. I bought a big case of the smaller fuel canisters at Home Depot and we used one apiece every night. Perfect.
Fulltime RVers should consider this

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 like the larger version of this one better
One person found this helpful.
This is a small indoor safe heater. I like the larger version of this one better, it’s not much larger and gives a lot more options (double heat, double bottles, battery operated fan, etc). But this one is cheaper and is smaller (for instance the handle folds away on this one). A fair amount of heat is emitted from this thing on high, and because it has the oxygen and tip over sensors it’s indoor safe. This means you can use it for emergency heat indoors if your power goes out, use it in an ice fishing shanty, sealed garage, etc.

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.
