Trending in the Aisles: Ryobi 18-Volt ONE+ Portable Propane Heater

A new year comes new opportunities and resolutions, but the weather is still the same cold as it was in the preceding months.

As the temperatures drop throughout the country, you'll most likely be finding yourself working outdoors or in areas where freezing or just chilly conditions can still be a big factor, like a garage or under construction home.

Having the right amount of heat is very crucial to have not only a warm environment to work in, but also a safe one. 

With this in mind, the folks at Ryobi have made giving heat to those work areas much more portable and with more options with this product I'd like to talk about in this post.

Introducing the Ryobi 18-Volt ONE+ 15,000 BTU Hybrid Portable Propane Heater. Yes, the same Ryobi that offers portable power tools and accessories for them!

Keeping area by workbench toasty enough to work

What makes this heater unique is the fact that unlike other outdoor/open-air heaters, this particular version by Ryobi can have its heat source by other means rather than just fuel. 

To my knowledge, this is the only multi-powered portable heater The Home Depot has ever sold in this capacity in stores. This means more ways to give yourself heating than just by propane fuel. 

As shown below, you can use a small 1 lb. cylinder propane tank for getting heat, which can provide up to 1.5 hours of heat.

Or as shown below, you can use your Ryobi ONE+ Lithium-Ion battery for up to 5 hours of heat.

Better still, you can simply use a 15A 125V rated plug to give the area heat as well!

While this heater won't produce as much heat as its larger fuel-fed versions, it is powerful enough for small areas and can work on the methods shown above. 

This makes it a perfect solution for places where you won't be working all day but still need heat, like a ventilated garage or just tuning up your vehicle in your driveway.

With any portable heater you use, be very mindful of its limitations to keep you and whoever is around it safe. Always use this heater in a well ventilated area, preferably something where a window or door is open if you are working with it indoors.

Failure to do so can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, leading to serious issues. As long as you heat safe, you can be safe using this great new propane heater by Ryobi!
