ThermaCELL Lantern – First Impressions

ThermaCELL Lantern is a lightweight portable, butane-operated, area insect repellent that is up to 98% effective at repelling mosquitos, black files, and other flying insects. The lantern works by using a butane cartridge to disperse allethrin in to the air, creating a 15’x15′ bug free zone. Each allethrin mat provides up to four hours of protection and each butane cartridge provides up to 12 hours of operation. In addition the lantern features several LEDs to provide ambient light powered by two AA batteries. The batteries and light are not required for the bug repelling features as both features work independently. The ThermaCELL Lantern operates without any open flame and is 100% DEET free.

With a trip planned for Algonquin Park just around the corner this couldn’t be a better time and place to put this ThermaCELL Lantern to the test. Stay tuned for the full review!
