Versatility is the name of the game when it comes to the Camplux portable tankless water heater.

Since you get a pretty good GPM for a mobile tankless water heater, you can use it for multiple jobs.

Water Flow Rate

At 2.64 GPM, you get way more water flow than you need for a simple shower. In fact, if you put a Y connector on the outgoing water hose, then you can easily use this to shower while somebody is doing dishes, or better yet, you can have two showers going on at once.

Applicable water pressure from 3.6~110.0 PSI.Hot water output 2.64 gallons per minute, work easily with great performance.. That’s not much pressure needed so if you are drawing from a well or using a pump to get the water there, you shouldn’t have any issues with it not triggering the heat exchanger.

Keep in mind that the listed GPM is the maximum that you can expect when your incoming water temperature is about 75°F. If you water is colder coming in then it takes longer to heat it so the GPM will fall.

Very Efficient

With an 88% efficiency rating, you should see savings on your propane usage of around 11%. Roughly translated, your propane usage should end up being around 1 pound for every 1.5 hours of use from the tankless water heater.

With a shower lasting roughly 5 or so minutes, and washing dishes around 10 then you can see just how little propane the Camplux uses.

Great news for those off the grid that don’t want to keep refilling a 20 pound propane tank too often!

Add to the fact that you can set the heater for summer or winter use and it can save you even more. Summer mode not only sets the temperature of the outgoing water lower, but it also uses 60% of the heating element so it saves gas as well.


Versatile and Easy to Use

The LED display is easy to read and is customizable. The dials on the front of the unit will set your water temperature to be read on the display as well as your water flow. Keep the flow low when you want to make sure it is as hot as you like it, and up the flow when you have multiple fixtures running. Just increase the temperature to keep up with the water demand.

You can use the heater outdoors in a shower or for an outdoor sink or tub. Or, it can be used inside in a bathroom or kitchen as a point of use tankless water heater if you want it to be permanent.

Easy to Install

It only takes about 15 minutes to set this up outside. All you have to do is find a tree or post to hang it on, attach the hose or incoming water supply, hook up the incoming gas line, put your D batteries in and turn it on.

It’s literally that simple.

Installing it indoors is more complex and will take more time, but it is not something that requires a professional. Make sure you get a venting kit as the exhaust needs to be directed outside.


You can’t beat the performance, especially for the price. If you have read any other reviews before this of other models and brands, you probably noticed that the GPM is usually under 2.0. To get the kind of flow rate and still not kill your propane tank, this is really nice.

It is versatile and adapts to any way you want to use it.
