Outwell Fuji Electric Camping / Patio Heater Review

Ideal for taking the edge off a parky morning, or for keeping away any late evening chill, the best seller Fuji Electric Camping/Patio Heater is available from Outwell. There is also a smaller version called the Etna.

Designed to hang from the tent ceiling pole, these mains-operated units feature a safe halogen element to impart an instant warming heat across a wide area, as well as an integral light. Each comes ready-plugged with a 5m cable and strong but light aluminium casing.

Specifications:

  • Material: Aluminium cover
  • Power: 240V
  • Size: Full size dia: 42.5 cm
  • Weight: 1.6 kg
  • 600W or 1500W - two settings
  • Halogen heating element
  • Can be used either indoor or outdoor
  • Instant heat - safe and convenient
  • Odourless heating
  • Plug (230V) and 5m cable cord included (5m cable cord is woven in with the metal chain)
  • Detailed operating manual is enclosed

The Outwell Fuji Electric Camping / Patio Heater retails at a RRP of £89.99

What did we think?

The heater is surprisingly lightweight, and a reasonable size for packing away. We set it up for our first outing from the centre cross poles of our awning and with the long length of cable we were able to feed this down the poles and to the power supply, without the cable getting the way or becoming a trip hazard. The other advantage of having it hanging from the roof is that it's away from the reach of small kids, or dogs. I had worried that having it hanging may distort the roof, but it was light enough to hang there without bending the pole! Adults could bang their heads on it, so you'll need space to hang it and ensure it is away from the sides of your tent or awning.

Heating a tent or awning safely is a worry for many, with lots of people concerned about the implications of having gas appliances running inside, so provided you have electric hookup, this is a perfect solution. On the other hand of course, the fact you need EHU could be a possible downside for some, as could be the size of the heater if you have limited space for packing, as it's around 17 inches in diameter.

The shape of the heater means it radiates the heat downwards, and it seemed very effective. With the two heat settings the Outwell Fuji Electric Camping / Patio Heater quickly warmed up the awning and within a short while we had to revert the heater to the 600w setting to hold the heat and keep us toastie warm.

Overall this is a superb, lightweight and easy to use camping heater, that is ideal for anyone wanting to keep warm, whether in the home, in the garden, on a campsite or on your boat, just make sure you have enough space.
