They are sh1t I have one below about 6-8 degrees the butane begins to freeze in the cartridge

Best off getting a calor heater and a propane bottle (and matching regulator not technically legal in a dwelling but fine in a detached garage)

If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

Looked at the bigger ones Andy but they're not for us. This would very much be a 'just in case' because I have plenty of the fuel anyway.

I've been looking at more preventative weather protection for when it eventually turns, as it'll no doubt be thunderstorms and heavy prolonged rain leading to flooding, so looking at renewing the roof covering on the shed and making sure gutters are clear, slates are all in place and none loose, and drainpipes all clear and not full of dry leaves and crap.

Then it'll be washing out the water butt and making sure the filters are clean and flowing...

I spent a little time cutting and stacking wood this weekend too. Most of my supplies come from stuff salvaged at work , either offcuts , timber ripped out ( but not painted or treated ) or branches trimmed from trees and so on . It the case of the green wood it's more than likely to be fuel for next year rather than this.
Push comes to shove I have four full 15kg butane cylinders sitting ready as well.
Years ago we used to have propane heaters in site huts at work. They were nicknamed "motorbikes" because of the pulsing throb sound that came from them.
