One of the reasons I'm here is to learn how to do this the right way.

The butane heater does say 'outdoor use' several times in the advert, so that's out; funny story, the butane stove says the same thing, but I see them in restaurants all over the world.

The new plan:

Twice the money ($US75 vs. 35) but has a low O2 sensor and a 'tipped over' shut-off. I can carry 2 1lb propane cans in my fuel locker and have plenty of heat for even the coldest weekend. I'll still need the CO/CO2/Smoke detector and I still won't run it overnight, but it seems to be a much better option.

Thanks, Peter.
