Although isn't it usually hitori demo, or is that just like "hitori demo heiki" ?

it could be "hitori demo ii" or "hitori demo heiki" either one works.

heiki is more for safety. "I'm safe by myself."
ii is more like "I'm okay by myself"

OK--thanks, that makes sense. So it might sound slightly more natural to put something like "Although I don't have any friends, I'm OK with that" as "tomodachi dewa nakutemo heiki desu" as opposed to "tomodachi dewa nakutemo ii desu."
