I have had 3 of these for a couple of years now. They are easy to fill if you read the directions and I have not had any leaks. Yes they come empty and you have to fill them and yes it’s a bit more effort than the throw away cylinders but so what. On a whole they are a better option than the Coleman style cylinders that can not be recycled.
Bought one of these along with a new stove at my local store. Didn't work; returned to store. It took 3 REI staffers 10 minutes to figure out that this tank is sold without gas in it. Would have been nice to know this in advance.
You have to buy the big Flame King refilling package in order to use this. Any other adaptor simply won't work. It's awkward and we couldn't get it to work trying to fill it from our camper van propane tank.
I bought the refill kit, and a extra tank. After just a couple fills, both tanks are now leaking and will not hold propane.
Pays for itself the third time you use it.It works great. I just wish they made the skinny one.I will be buying more.
I was not able to fill the cylinder yet. I need to fill it from a home propane tank with a connection piece.
