Now this is useful. Thank you.


We use a propane light on stand that connects to a standard propane tank. On high, it lights up a large portion of the campsite. At night, we dim it down and enjoy a campfire. At bedtime, turn off the propane at the tank. On low, the light will stay on for quite a while (around an hour) while it burns through the propane in the stand. The only thing you need to do is to remember to turn off the light completely before turning the tank back on.
