The description stated "usually ships in one to two months" caught my eye. The product looks like it would be a good idea. Amazon also lists several products that can refill the disposable cylinders as well.

Don't most propane tank have a device in them that prevent the propane to flow if the tank tips over? How does it work if the tan is up side down?

If you don't plan on purchasing a kit to refill them yourself, from your own larger tank, it is unlikely you will fill anyplace to refill them.

Our local Camping World even reached out to the company, to get the hardware necessary to fill these tanks, and did not manage to get what was needed.

What a great solution to an environmental problem. I'll check them out at my local U-Haul. We carry a one-gallon propane tank to fuel our portable camping stove. https://www.amazon.com/Worthington-2...l+propane+tank

REFILLING 1LB TANKS

This the 2nd. devise of its kind I have seen. The first was sold in Newfoundland for a short period a few years ago but the sales were banned within six months. It was considered unsafe.
This one looks like it might be safer to use.
I will have to give it some thought. Thanks for the post..
