If you like to spend a lot of time outdoors, you probably already know the importance of an effective, reliable heater to help you warm up your hands and fend off the bitter cold and chilliness. However, it is clear that not all heaters are made the same. There are heaters with different designs, price points, fuel sources, and heating mechanisms, and each works differently. If you have tried many space heaters but none seem to fit exactly what you are looking for, it might be time to try a different design.

The Mr. Heater Tank Top is one of the more unique space heaters in the industry. The design sets it apart, and it also distinguishes itself by how it works to keep you warm and how you use it. If you’re looking for a heater that is a bit more self-serving and also works by radiating heat all around instead of in one direction, this might be the right option for you.

360-Degree Burner Head

The most unique feature of this space heater is undoubtedly the round 360° burner head. This design helps you to heat a room or group of people that would not have been possible with a one-direction space heater. If you have tried space heaters in the past that only send heat in one direction but they haven’t worked with you, you should definitely consider this unique design as an alternative.

One of the main benefits of this type of head is the way that it distributes heat. Because of its shape, it can send out heat to multiple places at once, making everyone happy. Have you ever been on a camping trip where one person is complaining about being cold while another is hogging all the heat from the space heater? That won’t be a concern any longer!

  • 360 degree burner head
  • 30,000 - 45,000 BTU tank top heater
  • Push button te Valve
  • Safety shut off tip over switch

Another benefit of this design is more even heat distribution when it comes to intensity. You may have used a one-directional space heater in the past but found that the heat was too intense in one direction for it to actually be useful. This heater will contribute more to the even heating of all areas of the room rather than a single concentrated beam of heat that results in uneven heating of people and space.

Finally, the design of this heater allows it to be more than just a space heater. The circular head that sticks out at the top like a torch lets you use this heater almost similar to a campfire. If you have cold hands, you can come by the heater and quickly rub them together while enjoying the constant, even heat that the heater is putting off. Multiple people can do this at once, making this heater very unique and versatile.

Heater Power

The power of this heater is a moderate 30,000–45,000 BTU. This isn’t the most powerful space heater, but then again it isn’t necessarily meant to be used to heat an entire home. This would be a great heater to have in a very small space or around the campsite for warming hands. When you buy this heater, it isn’t necessarily for the power of it. Where it really shines is in the way that it is able to evenly distribute that heat and give off a constant, moderate warming to all those around it.

That said, there are 3 heat settings, giving you some versatility to work with. You can set it to 30,000, 36,000, and 45,000 BTU, each giving off a progressively higher amount of heat and power.

Safety Features

This portable camping tent heater and campsite heater has a very important safety feature and that is the auto shut-off for tip overs. In the hustle and bustle of a campsite, space heaters can easily be tipped over. When done at night or when nobody is looking, this can create a very dangerous situation for everyone involved. A space heater that has been tipped over in the woods or inside can very quickly create a fire hazard that will endanger all guests.

Pros and Cons


● Lightweight and portable
● No electricity needed
● Quiet and easy to use
● Unique heat distribution method
● Rotating head for even heating
● Affordable


● Less powerful than some other heaters


If you have tried some standard space heaters in the past but have come up empty when it comes to serving your specific needs, then you should certainly try this design of space heater for a change. The innovative spinning head allows you to evenly heat a room or campsite. It would serve you very well as a camping tent heater or campsite hand-warming station. If you’re looking for even heat distribution and convenient use, you can’t go wrong with this model by Mr. Heater.
