3 Best Tent Heaters For Camping For Sale Online

Updated on June 12, 2011

One of the most beloved types of holidays in the world is camping.  There's something about getting away from the cities, the lights, the action and living in the wild for a few days; of course campsites are so well managed now that it's not like the real thing but it's close enough. 

What makes camping such a great activity?  No technology.  You're away from the white noise of it all and instead of being on the computer or watching TV you get to read a book, go hiking, go fishing... all the real, tangible things of the world. 

Another reason why people camp is that instead of the classic Man vs Man which the city entails, when you're camping it's Man vs Nature: it's you against the elements.

And sometimes those elements get cold.  And sometimes you need a tent heater to survive.

Tent heaters have been around for centuries; way back when aboriginals ruled the land, they would have more natural tent heaters in the form of fires (even up north igloos still use a fire to stay warm). 

Tent heaters have, however, become more modern.  Electric tent heaters for camping, gas tent heaters, cheap coleman tent heaters... the list goes on and on.  But what's the best?

      This review is at best misleading.

      The second choice, the Mr Heater Big Buddy heater is described as "If you don't like the use of propane then this battery powered tent heater is perfect for you" and as: "Battery OR A/C Powered Tent Heater".

      Please correct this: this heater is in fact propane powered, and it only has a small electric fan that may be turned on (optionally).

      The heater is not powered by electricity!
