Mini oil filled radiator/heater
#11
You could warm it by the camp fire for a bit I suppose, then use it like a storage heater.

Nah I know, wasn't sure how he was going to power it - maybe an inverter and leisure battery?

I wondered about that, but a quick mental calculation suggests a 400W load on a 500W inverter (£40 ish at Toolstation) is a constant 80% loading which is maybe ok, but 400W at 12v is errr a bit over 33 Amps, plus whatever the inverter needs?
I expect you'll also get a fair bit of warmth from the invereter too! How many AH are leisure batteries? Assuming 33A, you'll need a 100AH battery to run the heater for 3 hours?

Spot on mate, you wouldn't get long unless the battery was a monster - you do get 300Ah deep-cycle fancy jobbies but it's a big expensive lump, as is a large enough inverter not to struggle with the load plus anything else you want to power.

Yesterday I bought a 650watt radiator Its got 5 fins, the height (all approx) to the top of the fins is   13" the total length is 10 " and the fins are 4" wide.  On one end there is a carry handle which adds another 2" to the height. I'm really impressed with it. Paid £20

I could have bought a 6 fin 800w for £14.99 from Home Bargains

Or a 4 fin 400w from Argos for £24.99

£20 is pretty good. Do you plan to use an inverter and leisure battery?

I would only use it on electric hook up on the small campsites during the winter but I don't know how that stands with this tier 3 lock down.
