 I'd say the run time is actually probably longer than that. And it's plenty hot enough. Unless it's really cold and windy, I can only run it for 10 or 15 minute in my Kenai thermal without cracking the door or I get too hot. The smaller size and lighter weight plus less heat make it about perfect for a one man flip.
And I started using a clam plate with a 900 series Dewalt drill on my 8 inch laser auger this year. Even with a 60v battery it's not super heavy, and can really chew some ice. All the snow this year makes you really think about all the crap you haul around doesn't it? Lol

Totally agreed!   And yes those are great heaters!  I donít have one, but am planning on it for next winter.   The Buddy will stay in my Wilcraft and my Clam thermal flip will Iíve the smaller one.  Canít get rid of the shanty for those lakes I canít use the Wilcraft.

Yeah, Snowcone, I'm in the same boat. Must lighten the load.Going to put Mr. Buddy Heater away along with the heavy gas drill, going electric! Handwarmers usually do a good job but sometimes you need more heat on cold and windy days. Good idea, buddy! I'm going to buy one and use as needed.
My best friends are ice holes.

Have one and it works really well in the 1 man. I sold my gas but still am looking to lighten the load some more. Thinking about going to one of those jiffy pops considering a 2 man is only about 20 lbs. Are they to much hassle is you want to move around?
