How many BTU's?

4 posts in this topic

I believe...... a two mantel coleman puts out about 4000 BTU's. The new coleman single propane puts out alot of heat. Mabey even 7000 BTU's. The single "sock" mantel is much larger than the double mantel. The mantel is long.
And depending on the canvas color.... and sunshine... a cold day in the sun can still warm a small house. I have a fish trap pro. A coleman will keep it reasonably warm unless you encounter heavy wind. But then I move around , even if the fish are bitting. I just keep hunting new schools...
Keep warm fellas..... Oh ! and throw back the big ones.......Now thats interesting. whats a big crappie anymore?
Alrighty then.

I have a fish trap guide. I use a coleman lantern to provide heat and light. It takes the chill out of the air but is a hassle to bring with and take care of.

After reading all the good things of the Princeton lights I decided I would try them. However I need to heat the trap.

Does anyone know roughly how many BTU's a lantern puts out?

More importantly what would be a good replacement for heat. I have read problems with the Buddy's and am a little suspicious of them blowing out now.

cheers

Chadly, I've had a buddy heater since last season and fish out of a 2 man Eskimo. I recommend it! It has blown out a couple times but its a minor compared to breathing sunflower fumes and listening to them hiss at you. I agree with you on the coleman route. I had to put new mantels on again last night. Seems like every time you use it you have to put new ones on and replace a globe once a year to boot! I used a headlight last night and was surprised at how handy it was...until the bulb burnt out:-(

I have a Trap II, forerunner to your Guide. I heat it with a Coleman Black Cat, which puts out 4,000 btus. That's warm enough to about zero, but then not warm enough. I have a Coleman Northstar single mantle propane lantern that puts out at least half again as much heat as the Cat. I've run them both full blast when it's really cold, but man do I get a headache from the fumes. frown.gif

Now I have the headlamp, so don't need the lantern, and love leaving that hassle behind. Don't know what I'll do when it's seriously cold and I want to fish. Guess I'll get a Buddy. Been looking at them a couple years, never seem to want to part with the $75 when they're on clearance.

    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers. 
    • When did I claim the election was rigged? It was influenced by Russian propaganda and you have a President that is in all likelihood blackmailed by Russia.    And that is equivalent to some Saudi's donating to a charity somehow? Note that Trump's charity was shut down because it funneled money directly into Trump's pocket.
