ThermaCELL Patio Lantern

I like summer and spending time outside on the deck but I am not too fond of mosquitoes which always want to bite when Melinda and I are outside. Thank goodness I do not get bit that often but Melinda and Sabreena do constantly making sitting outside unpleasant.
When I was asked if I wanted to analyse the new ThermaCELL Patio Lantern I jumped at the opportunity. With our new place and new patio furniture the ThermaCELL Patio Lanterns provided the relief we were looking for from annoying mosquitoes allowing us to enjoy sitting outside. What I like about the ThermaCELL Patio Lanterns is they provide a decent amount of light with a low and high switch but the draw back it each lantern runs on 4 AA batteries (which are included). I also like how they are functional but add a decorative touch to the deck. We have used the lanterns on two different occasions with great success. They were easy to put together and turning them on is easy. You can run the repellant part of the lantern without having to turn on the light and vise versa.


ThermaCELL uses revolutionary, patented technology to dispense a small amount of repellent into the air over a long period of time. ThermaCELL is powered by a butane cartridge which provides the cordless, portable heat necessary to operate the device (batteries are not needed). It directs the heat to a metal grill. A mat saturated with Allethrin, a copy of a naturally occurring insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers, is placed on top of the metal grill. The heat generated by the butane cartridge vaporizes the repellent allowing it to rise into the air, creating a 15 x 15 ft (225 sq ft) “Mosquito-Free-Zone” in minutes. The repellent is very unpleasant to mosquitoes, but when used as directed, will not harm humans or pets.

All in all I feel the ThermaCELL Patio Lantern is well worth the money and I would recommend them to friends and family. I have seen these lanterns in Home Depot as well as here with all of the accessories needed after you use the original provided ones so these are not one and done lanterns. So if you hang outside on the deck a lot like we do you should give the ThermaCELL Patio Lantern a try.
