Hey Big Buddy! Meet the Big Boy of “Indoor Safe” Propane Heaters

We’ve discussed the Little Buddy and the Portable Buddy propane heaters. What’s else does the clever Mr Heater have up his toasty warm sleeve? Meet (you guessed it) Big Buddy! (http://amzn.to/1qmIZAG)

Taking portable propane powered passion to the next level, Big Buddy boasts an 18,000 BTU/HR capacity and can heat up to 400 square feet. If you own a big rig RV or have larger heating needs, then “Big Buddy” may be your new best friend.

Hey BIG BUDDY! Meet the Big Boy of INDOOR SAFE portable propane heaters. (Click the pic for more info.)

Big Buddy combines radiant heat with convection heat air flow for maximum heating efficiency. A built-in blower fan circulates heated air. The blower fan operates on 4D-cell batteries or with optional 6-volt A/C adapter.

Now, about that fan… Frankly, users have mixed opinions about the effectiveness of the fan. In fact, some would say that the fan is a waste of time and D batteries. But thankfully, the fan is really not necessary because Big Buddy kicks out BIG HEAT. While folks may quibble about the fan, no one denies that Big Buddy is a heat volcano (without all the unpleasant lava).

Big Buddy has several heat settings that allow one to control heat levels according to need. The four-position heat control features a camping-style Piezo ignition (you know the type – just push and click). It offers pilot/lo/med/hi settings.

Yes, Big Buddy is indoor safe. These units boast a built-in low oxygen sensor and a tip over switch to ensure safe and reliable operation. The “Mr Heater” line of indoor safe propane units is well respected for its safety features. When it comes to safety, Mr Heater doesn’t joke around. (Mrs Heater would not approve.)

BIG Buddy features an easy-carry handle that’s built right in to the top of the unit. But note that Big Buddy tips the scales at 17.5 pounds, so you probably won’t care to tote this rock up Mount Everest without a strong sherpa. Check out the Little Buddy for that job.

The front of the Big Buddy unit is trimmed with heavy-duty safety wire. The wire guards the face of the unit for added tile protection and improved durability while traveling.

The dual ceramic burner tiles have shock absorbing insulation – not that we recommend playing basketball with Big Buddy, but he should ride along in your rig just fine. Big Buddy’s heat reflector is coated with porcelain for extended life.

Big Buddy has a hose storage bay that allows the convenient storage of optional connection hoses that range up to 12 feet long. The hose length means you can get creative when it comes time to feed Big Buddy some fuel.

If you want to simply use one pound tanks, a swivel regulator mount makes the cylinder installation easy. But attaching refillable tanks, of course, will offer the most economical heating solution over the long term.

About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
