It will not run without power. It's needed for the ignitor.
ZERO flames come out the end. They are deep in the tube.

Answer: 
Bought one today and it would require another source of power to keep the ignitor going (it remains active as long as the unit is on in case of a blow out it will reignite the propane to prevent build up of gasses). You can get flame out the front when the unit is on high and you obstruct the fan intake.

Answer: 
Nope, but the fan only draws about 75 watts, so you could easily use it with a small generator or car power inverter (careful not to run your car's battery dead!). No flame comes out the end. The flame is kept in the tube.

Answer: 
I should run without power but you'd need the power initially to get the flame started (there's no way I'm sticking my hand in there, even with a long match)
The flame stays completely within the unit and only goes about 3-4 inches from the burner to inside the tube on high. The fan does a great job of keeping the flame in a right circle and blowing the heat out.

Answer: 
Yes, the propane connections are universal for the 20lb. tank. However, instead of the threads connecting to the outside of your tank like most newer grills do, the threads go inside. Not a big deal, but you do just need to remember that the "righty tighty, lefty loosey" rule is reversed in that situation. So, you tighten by turning left.

Yes, this heater is supplied with a hose and regulator to run on any current 10 lb. through 30 lb. propane tank. These are typical grill style propane tanks.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 177 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HEATS GREAT A great heater for the price. I use it in my garage for my wooden toy business. It heats great, but the propane consumption leaves a little bit to be desired. My garage is insulated, but I will use one tank of propane about every 10 hours or less. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Professional Quality at a great price I currently own a smaller tank top heater and wanted to upgrade to a larger heater when working in my garage. Dyna Glo Pro is a great brand and this price from Home Depot was an unbeatable value. I could never afford the larger forced air units, but this is a great value and the perfect size to heat a 2 car garage to a comfortable temperature during the winter. The fan requires an extension cord to plug into the actual unit with a smaller 1ft cord (basically a safety feature) It looks great with a nice orange finish. I am very impressed by the build quality, it feels like a sturdy unit and has a carry handle on top for easy transporting. The propane hose is very long and makes it easy to position the heater where you need it. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and really recommend this heater. Propane is a much better fuel to use vs. kerosene due to the clean burning and lack of nasty kerosene smell. December 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value and Performance I need a heater for my garage so that I can do maintenance on my cars and generally putter around during the winter. I purchased the heater, unpacked and attached the gas line and it was ready to go. The heater ignited immediately. It is a little noisy as others noted, not too bad though. There is some noise from the blower and then from combustion. Just the nature these types of heaters. A very important concern for me was odor caused by unburnt gas. I noticed this on other propane heaters of the like. This heater burns absolutely clean. I experienced no odor or hydrocarbon smell. If you need a portable heater this one deserves serious consideration. December 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Instant HOT Ready to go, just hook up to a 20-pound tank and you're chasing the chill. Roaring blue flame tinged with white tips; there's a slight odor, but this is typical of these forced-air propane heaters. I checked with a CO alarm, and got ZERO reading, so I think it's plenty safe. Fire it up outdoors the first time to burn off any oils etc that might be on parts that will get hot. [Others have commented on the one-speed fan: you can't have a choice, folks; it's providing the combustion air!] February 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great!! This heater works great! I compared to a Mr. Heater 38k BTU which is more quiet, but does not put out the heat like this one. This unit will heat my 3 car garage making it comfortable in about 10 minutes on high, then I put it on low just to maintain. Mr. Heater is more quiet but doesn't feel like 38k BTU compared to this one. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of how loud it is but at the end of the day, I need heat more than I need quiet... and you get used to it after a while. Overall, extremely good value and I'm happy with it. January 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok for heat This is my 3rd turbo heater. I feel like I buy one a year. Lucky I was able to take old ones apart to fix my newest one. The one I am using now is about 14 months old. Seems like the thermal coupling keeps going out. Anyway I took a old one apart to get my newer one running. Dyna-glo needs to put more R&D in there product to get it right. February 13, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worked OK, then gave me problems. Bought one of these units from Home Depot. Worked great for about 24 hours, then became very temperamental. Flame would go out for no reason whatsoever, then wouldn't re-light. When I was lucky enough to get it lit again, just looking at it wrong would cause the flame to go out. Called their tech line and hung up after being on hold for 1 hour just to speak to a tech. Returned the unit back to Home Depot thinking I just got a dud, but they were sold out. Unit was of decent quality, with lots of safety features and great heat output. Just wished my unit worked correctly. December 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little heater I hate winter and hate not being able to work in my garage in comfort when it's cold. I have a classic car and lots of equipment that I like to work on so I bought this heater hoping it would allow me to spend more time in the garage when it's cold out. This propane heater has no problem heating my three car garage to a comfortable level during the coldest days. It is very simple to operate and works great! At least now I don't have to wait until Spring to get my mowers and other power equipment up and running. January 26, 2016
