Gear Review: Thermacell Outdoor Lantern

Keep bugs at bay this summer!

The Thermacell Outdoor Insect-Repellent Lantern is the best option for keeping mosquitoes and other insects in any outdoor camping setting. The Patio Lantern is both a powerful insect repellent device and a functional and portable, long-lasting outdoor LED lantern, with both functions being usable separately or together. Providing a 15×15 ft mosquito-free zone, it is 98% effective (tested and used by the Department of Defense and the United States Army), making it the most effective insect repellent device on the market. It is also non-toxic, safe and non-intrusive, being DEET-free, silent, portable and odor free. It weighs only 13 ounces.

This lantern is perfect for campsites, but also great for patios, backyards, decks, picnics and barbecues. Rather than a harmful toxin, ThermaCELL utilizes allethrin, an artificial version of a natural insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers. The Lantern provides not only unmatched protection from biting insects, but ambient lighting for the campsite or other outdoor setting. Designed with a frosted globe, the lantern offers two illumination settings. The butane cartridge which powers the mosquito repellent provides 12 hours of power and is located on the interior for aesthetics and ease-of-use. Eight LEDs provide the light from the lantern, which has two settings controlled by a switch that is located on the base of the lantern and is powered by 4 AA batteries.

Retails for $31.99.
