Is this the newer A-frame version or the older version?
It's the latest version, but what's the difference between the older and newer versions?
As I understand it there are two versions. The older one made before about June 2010 uses 12ml of fuel per fill. The later one uses 20ml. I think they both run for about 12 hours so you must get more heat from the later model. Yet I read some complaints on newer version (not odorless enough and less reliable, extinguishes by itself). Nevertheless, I don't think they're making two versions now, I think they discontinued the older one.
I've been using it all day today, and it only smells like lighter fluid if you put it to your nose, but it could just be sloppy pouring. Most of the time it's in your pocket so you won't know the difference, unless you have smell receptors in your pockets.
I haven't had any issues with it extinguishing so far, if it does, you'll obviously know and just can light it up again.
Thanks for the insight.
