Imagine enjoying endless hot water at home throughout the week to wash your pets in the garden or in your garden pool shower and on the weekend having the luxury to enjoy hot water while camping with your family. Camplux 5L outdoor portable propane tankless water heater lets you enjoy both since it is, as the name suggests, is portable and is incredibly easy to carry. If you are an outdoors person, this might just be your lifesaver.
Energy Savings & Performance
Camplux 5L is a portable tankless water heater that is powered by propane. Normally, gas water heaters use electricity for ignition. However, Camplux 5L is an exception since it ignites by using only 2D cell batteries for power. Thus, you will never need to worry about the availability of electricity when you are camping or sailing on your boat.
Other than electricity availability, you won’t have to worry about water pressure with Camplux 5L, as well. Being the tankless water heater with the lowest pressure start-up on the market, this unit can work with only 2.5 PSI of water pressure. Moreover, if you need more pressure, this unit works well with 12V water supply pumps.
Camplux 5L has a capacity of heating 1.32 gallons of water per minute. At this flow rate, the maximum temperature raise it accomplishes is 114.8oF, which is quite impressive for a portable tankless water heater. Moreover, it is pretty energy efficient while performing this well as its power output is around 34,000 BTU per hour.
In addition to all the features listed above, Camplux 5L has a feature that gives you all the control. It is equipped with a brass-finished regulator with two knobs, one for controlling the heat and the other for controlling the flow rate. You can make adjustments keeping in mind that it takes more time and energy to heat water at a higher flow rate.
Design & Installation
As it has been designed to be carried around, Camplux 5L outdoor tankless water heater is very light and compact. It is 11.4 x 5.5 x 14.6 inches and weighs only 10.8 pounds. It will easily fit into the trunk of your car and even your 12-year old child can carry it from the garage to the garden. Plus, it has a folding handle that justifies its portability.
The unit is extremely easy to install too. It comes with a showerhead and hose and a CSA regulator. All you need to do is to arrange for propane and batteries. Then read the instructions and even if you have very little DIY skills, you will be good to go. Moreover, the unit comes with a mounting kit in case you would like to mount it on a wall instead of placing it on the ground.
Camplux 5L is covered by a one-year warranty. However, the unit also has some safety measures such as anti-freeze protection so that possible failures can be avoided beforehand. Plus, the brand boasts about its helpful aftersales team.
