Default Mod: Portable Espar Heater

https://www.instagram.com/p/BcLsx8SBE3k/

PNWSquid put together a portable Espar heater which runs off a small lithium ion battery and kerosene/diesel. Looks like a small toolchest. Would make a great backup heater and kerosene would keep the Espar heater clean. A 12v plug-in could be an alternative to the lithium battery.

PNWSquid indicates the use of ducts could be used with toolchest heater outside or inside.

I love it, great idea - a portable spare heater. On 1 quart of kerosene it could run at full blast of 2.2kW for 3.5 hours.
