With a modern variety and a huge selection of LED lamps and lanterns, the relevance of gas lamps, such as for example Tramp TRG-014, as a means of lighting has come to naught. The only field of application in which gas lamps can be more or less demanded is the heating of small residential volumes.

tents and car interior in the parking lot. Her ability to illuminate was secondary, which is why the option was chosen with a closed metal, rather than a transparent glass shade. Of course, price played a significant role. There is no doubt that in terms of productivity and heat transfer, any gas burner would do better than a Tramp TRG-014 lamp, but a conventional gas burner is an open flame. Which is not at all acceptable in a tent or in a car.
There is a risk of arson and fire even with the Tramp TRG-014 gas lamp, but it does not give an open flame, and the burning area is at least somehow protected by a metal shade. During operation, the Tramp TRG-014 gas lamp emits scattered light, there is no noticeable smell of gas, noise is present, but within acceptable limits. During the burning of the grid there is a very strong flow of heat upwards, this must be taken into account, and provide at least 25-30 centimeters of free space above the gas lamp.
Gas consumption, according to subjective sensations, is fully consistent with the declared. A gas lamp is very economical even at maximum operating conditions. One gas cylinder for 230 grams was enough for heating in alternating mode (periodic on / off) for three nights. An important factor when using a gas lamp, as well as any other heating devices, is the mandatory presence of ventilation. Without it, operating a Tramp gas lamp will be at least reckless.
General conclusion on a gas lamp Tramp TRG-014.
Summarizing all of the above. The gas lamp Tramp TRG-014 copes with the requirements for heating the tent and the passenger compartment. While justifies all the expectations placed on her. It was experimentally established that the minimum ambient temperature in order for the lamp to provide normal heating for a double tent should not be lower than zero degrees. The lamp has a good price-quality ratio. Certain, but not critical, problems are created by the integrated piezo ignition..
