FLIKR™ brings you ambience and warmth wherever you are. Brilliantly simple, burning just rubbing alcohol, this tiny fireplace is portable, clean, and safe inside or out, with readily available and inexpensive fuel.
It burns for about 45 minutes per 5oz of regular rubbing alcohol, which can be poured directly into the reservoir. It's designed to produce nothing but water vapor and carbon dioxide, meaning there's no smoke or soot to tarnish the glow.

You can toast marshmallows over the fireplace.Is there any odor when in use? Can it be turned off when needed?
There isn't much of an odor as the rubbing alcohol burns very clean. Also, you can turn it off by smothering it (we recommend a steel or stone coaster).How many ounces of oil does it take?
We recommend 5 ounces of rubbing alcohol (approximately an inch below the rim) for the full burn time of 45-60 minutes.Is it possible to control the flame size?
There is no way to control the flame size.How hot does the concrete base get?
They each have adjustable feet so if you are in any worried you can lift the unit up by almost an inch. The nice thing about cement is it is a terrible conductor, so even though it can get hot it won't scald.How much fuel does it hold? What percentage of isopropyl is recommended?
5 ounces gives an inch from the top, which is what is recommended. 70% and 91% both work but 91% is what is recommended.Can I use other flammable liquids?
Rubbing alcohol is the only liquid endorsed as it is safe to burn inside.How tall do the flames get?
Flames that are 4-6 inches is typical.How do you put it out?
Snuffing it out is actually quite simple: cover it for even just a few seconds with a drinks coaster (or something non-flammable that covers the entire diameter of the burn chamber).How do you light this?
A long-handled lighter is recommended.Are there specific instructions on opening windows while using the fireplace based on monoxide emission?
It is recommended for use in a ventilated space but not necessarily windows open. Any flame has the potential of producing carbon monoxide in a low enough oxygen environment. Isopropyl alcohol does not though naturally produce carbon monoxide.Does it burn alcohol exclusively or can you use citronella oil?
Citronella needs a wick so, unfortunately no. You can add some drops of it to the alcohol though if burning outside!Does it produce much heat?
Actually no! It's a bit of cozy heat but you won't need to turn down your AC or anything.How would that do in a travel trailer?
Obviously, you wouldn't want it lit while moving but once parked it makes a fantastic fireplace without the wood smoke smell.Is the 5” diameter inside, or outside to outside ?
The 5" diameter is the outside measurement.What’s the difference in burning 91% and 70% ?
91% burns a bit hotter but it's not very noticeable. 70% is good except in some situations it won't burn completely, leaving a small amount of water in the bottom of the unit.If you can add a few drops of citronella, can you add anything for aroma?
You can most certainly add drops of any essential oil to the rim of the FLIKR. Simply sprinkle a few drops, let it soak in a bit (so it doesn't burn off) and then light your fireplace. The scent, unfortunately, does not last for too long.Can you add essential oils to the 91% alcohol or would it not mix well with alcohol system?
Unfortunately, adding essential oils to the rubbing alcohol doesn't quite work. However, you can put essential oils on the rim of the fireplace and you will smell the oil for a short time, as the unit heats up!How much does it weigh?
The FLIKR weighs 5lbs 4oz.
