Very similar to that, yes. Mine isn't a Coleman, and it's black instead of blue, but essentially yes, that's the machine I have.
If you're thinking in terms of byproducts, both produce carbon monoxide. Use in a well ventilated area like with other stoves. One thing to note with butane, is it doesn't like cold conditions.This may be useful.... https://www.enkivillage.org/butane-vs-propane.html

Oh yeah make sure the pot holder is right side up, I actually knew someone who tried to boil water the other way and wondered why the water wouldn't boil and the whole room smelled like burnt paint.
I never use butane stoves. On the contrary to isobutane and propane, butan gas does not evaporate in low temperatures. As a result, when air temperature is below 10 or 5 deg Celsius, the power output is tragically low. That's why I prefer Jetboil cartriges containing propane, isobutane and just a tiny of butane. Coleman and Primus also have too much butane for my purposes.
So far I have stoves that are powered by:WoodPropaneIsobutaneButaneNaptha/white gas/Coleman Stove FuelAlcoholSolid fuel cubes (what is that stuff that is in Esbit tablets? )And at least one of them (Whisperlite International) can also be powered by propane, gasoline etc.Def
Or two burners feeding off one canister. I think I would rather have two singles than one double that is just two singles stuck together. It seems kind of pointless, and like it would be much more awkward to lug around than two singles.Def
