Tired of never know when you’re going to need to refill your propane? I had quite a few times where I was in the middle of cooking something, amazing of course, and the propane tank ran dry. Sure, I could buy another propane tank to have as a spare, but instead I found a product that claims it can help ensure that you never ruin a cookout again: Mopeka Pro Propane Tank Gauge. It seems easy enough to use, so I got one and put it to our Tailgating Challenge.
Mopeka Pro Features
-99% accurate (within +-1%)
-3-5 year battery life
-Easy to Install
-App on phone advises of current propane levels
-Updates levels every 3 seconds
What Did We Think?
I saw the Mopeka Pro and had the light bulb moment; I need this grilling gadget to stop the insanity of running out of propane at the most inopportune times. The Mopeka comes in small box and is ready to help start saving your grilling in no time.
First, let’s talk installation. I created the short video below to walk you through the installation process to see it in action. You will first download the app and then sync the Mopeka to the app. It’s literally as simple as pressing the SYNC button on the Mopeka unit to pair to your phone.
Next add a dab of the (included) dielectric grease to the center circle on the back of the Mopeka unit. This will help ensure the most accurate readings.
If needed, the kit comes with three spacers to help lift your propane tank for proper clearance of the Mopeka Unit.
Now you will simply attach the Mopeka Pro unit to the bottom of your propane tank. The unit is magnetic, so it easily attaches to the bottom of your propane tank.
Now you can access your Mopkea app to determine the exact amount of propane in your tank. This can also come in handy when you go to buy a new propane tank and see exactly how much propane they are actually selling you!
In our testing of this we had multiple propane tanks to test out. Some tanks were pretty full, while others were running low on propane. The Mopkea unit was able to give readings that were exactly, as we thought they should be. Can I say this unit measured it down to the 1% error rate, no, but I know it is now helping ensure I never have a FAILgating experience by running out of propane.
PROS: easy to use, simple app, comes with spacers, long battery life
CONS: battery not rechargeable, but is replaceable
Overall, if you’re tired of guessing how much propane you have left it’s time to upgrade to the Mopkea Pro. Take the guesswork out of your next cookout.
