As temperatures drop towards winter, don’t let the cold keep you from camping and backpacking. There are so many ways to stay warm and extend your adventures no matter what the conditions.
Is An Electric Heater Safe In A Tent?
If you do choose to heat your tent with a portable heater, electric heaters are the safest as they do not produce flame or emit CO2. This being said, you should always be cautious when using any heater inside a tent.
Only use heaters specifically designed for camping, and never leave your heater unattended or sleep with it running. Turn your heater on half an hour before bed, warm up your space and turn it off before you go to sleep.
The downside to electric heaters is that you must have a power source. This could come in the form of a paid-for, powered campsite, your car battery, or an inverter. Whatever option you choose, remember to consider the weather and the waterproofness of your connections.
Being in any small enclosed space with a heater generally comes with some precautions, even more so when you are inside a tent made of relatively thin material, designed to create a microenvironment. Firstly, as previously mentioned, never sleep with your heater turned on. Secondly, research your products and know the instructions/warnings associated with them.
Never take an open flame inside and make sure you have proper ventilation, despite the cold. Always follow the proper use and maintenance directions, and if using a gas heater inside, consider having a carbon monoxide detector and allow plenty of airflow in and out of your tent.
Alternatives to Battery Powered Tent Heaters
Besides using a portable propane/butane heater, there are several gear-related ways to boost your warmth levels. Investing in good cold-weather gear is the better bet vs lugging around large batteries or canisters of fuel – especially on a backpacking trip where staying lightweight is everything!
Hand and foot warmers
Super easy to find in any outdoor or snow shop, pocket hand warmers can be your best friend on those cold winter nights. Relatively inexpensive to buy a box in bulk and always pack a few for emergencies. The air-activated sachets of warmth simply heat up in 5-10 mins once you open the packet.
Put them in your gloves to keep your hands toasty, or stick them to your socks for a similarly pleasant sensation for your feet!
Even though they are only meant for your hands and feet, you can always place them anywhere else you may be extra cold. I have used them as an alternative to a heat pack on my lower back and I have friends who swear that placing two on the front of your hip bones can warm up your whole body.
The last handy use for foot warmers with sticky backs is to stick one to your phone. It may sound silly, but I’m sure if you have spent any extended time in extremely cold conditions you would know how fast your phone battery can die. Sticking a warmer to the back of your phone or keeping it in the same pocket as a hand warmer, keeps the battery going oh so much longer.
Good thermals are also a must when cold camping. You only need to carry one set (top and bottom) and they will dramatically increase your warmth.
There is a great debate as to whether you should actually wear them to sleep inside your sleeping bag or not. As thermals are designed to trap and retain your body heat (as is your sleeping bag), many say that if you wear thermals to sleep in your bag, your body heat isn’t able to escape and transfer to the material in the bag and warm it up.
Personally, I have found that if it is extremely cold and I have on both my thermals to keep my skin warm and a Nalgene hot water bottle to heat up the bag, I have been comfortable. On the other hand, I have friends who say it is better for them to sleep in long sleeves but not thermals and let the sleeping bag do the work.
Pros vs. Cons of battery powered heaters
Battery-based heaters, or hand warmers, are a great portable option for sporting events, camping, or being outdoors during cold weather. The heaters are safe to operate and can usually hold a charge for 8 to 12 hours.
These personal warmers, or rechargeable battery-powered heaters, will keep your hands or feet warm, but not much else. The devices aren’t designed to heat any type of space, other than a glove, and certainly won’t keep you warm if you’re in need of a battery-powered tent heater.
How efficient are battery powered heaters?
Whole-home battery-powered space heaters do not exist, so we’ve developed a list of products that can be used indoors or out and serve as a battery-powered heater alternative. There are many options on the market today that are safe to use indoors and stronger than battery-powered heaters. These heaters can also provide supplemental heat to your house in winter at an economical cost.
Another popular alternative to a battery-powered space heater is the electric heater. It is the cleanest and safest of all portable heaters, produces no exhaust or fumes, and works with the press of a button. Most electric SPACE HEATERS produce forced hot air and some can even be turned into an air cooler in summer. As long as you have a power outlet, you can take an electric heater with you anywhere.
Electric heaters come at all sizes and prices. You can place them on a table, put them in a corner or have them wall mounted. Depending upon the size of the heater, it can heat up to 250 square feet of space, without requiring any kind of ventilation. A standard electric space heater has a wattage of 1500 and can produce up to 5000 BTUs per hour. This is usually sufficient for heating a small room, the inside of a car, a tent, or outdoor spaces such as a garage or a patio.
Regardless of the type of portable heater you select, there are safety considerations that must be taken into account. Proper safety tips must be followed to prevent fires, burns, electrical shock, and carbon monoxide poisoning.
- Only buy a heater that has been tested by an accredited laboratory
- Do not leave the heater unattended, especially in the presence of pets or children
- Make sure to have proper ventilation if using a heater that produces fumes
- Purchase a heater with an auto shut-off function and a thermostat to prevent overheating
- Always check the heater for loose connections, broken cables or plugs before use
- Never leave the heater running while sleeping at night or when no one is home
- Clean the heater regularly to prevent buildup of dust or debris
- Consider the size of the heater, careful to not use a large heater for a small room
- Always store the heater in a clean, dry place when not in use
- Do not use a heater near flammable substances such as clothes, upholstery, wood, or cables
It’s also important to properly store your heater fuel and know how long each lasts.
