looking for feedback ( E-Z Propane Filler)

looking for feedback on the E-Z Propane Filler. are they safe? how do you know when you have filled it up?



Save money by easily refilling disposable propane bottles from your large bulk tank. Simply attach fitting and open valve to fill the bottle in one minute.

U.S. DOT prohibits the transportation of re-filled disposable bottles.

I imagin the bottle would just stop filling once the press equalized with the larger tank, hopefuly it would be rated for the same press,

we only pulled it off once the fire has to be big and really hot otherwise it will just Vent but if the fires hot enough it heats it up and makes it go boom before it has time to vent

I have seen these before on the net ,they say they work great as long as the bbq cylinder has more pressure than the small tank,but buck for buck it is cheaper to get an adapter hose and a tree or a tee fitting for small things like a lamp or heater or whatever.

those thing doens work too well. When the big tank it full, it'll fill the small tank up most of the way, but once the big tank is half empty it'll only fill the small tank halfway. Like others said the pressure equalizes and doesn't allow it to fill all the way.

just get a tree or adapter hose for your big tank and be done with it.

dont think it would work too well when big bottle is lowwer on press

just a thought...
when propane cylinder is upright and you crack the valve, it vents vapour.
when propane cylinder is upside down and you crack the valve, it should vent liquid...

thus... to get a better fill for the smaller bottles (and possibly quicker) big bottle should be upside down

I made my own from a torch head and a bbq adaptor. Works pretty good. The trick is to turn the 20lb tank upsidown so your trasfering liquid insted of gas.

Been using one of those for 5 years now. They work ok, buy like stated before. The lrger tank should be as full as possible, the larger tank has to be upside down,and the little bottles should be chilled to take a better charge. Fill for 1 minute, or until the transfer of propane stops(you'll be able to hear this).

Bobs right on this one . the propane bottle needs to be upside down to get the liquid it does Not draw from the bottom like a spray paint can. I always see guys useing transfer tubes and filling up stuff with the propane bottle in the upright position
