Keep kids safe outside-- ThermaCELL's newest area repellent lantern

ThermaCELL, manufacturer of the only portable, butane-operated, area insect repellent, is introducing a new lantern in spring 2013 that is attractive, affordable and highly effective. Using the same patented technology that is in embedded in all ThermaCELL products, the new lantern is up to 98% effective at warding off mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-ums and other biting insects, and is a wonderful addition to any deck or patio.

“Our newest ThermaCELL Lantern is unobtrusive, decorative and effective, allowing people to enjoy the outdoors free from biting insects without sacrificing their ambiance,” said Allegra Lowitt, vice president of marketing. “Other options on the market such as zappers, citronella or sprays can be noisy, smelly and cannot compare in effectiveness.”

The new ThermaCELL Lantern is the newest addition to the product line. This slightly smaller lantern of dark bronze color has a cylinder shaped globe and three LED lights that provide the same protection as the Patio, Outdoor and Mini lanterns. With appealing aesthetics, it compliments any outdoor setting and can be used as a lantern year-round. MRSP price for the new ThermaCELL Lantern is $22.99.

ThermaCELL products are silent, odor free and are not applied to the skin. It’s the perfect option for outdoor entertaining and enjoying the backyard. Now there is no need to disrupt outdoor fun at dusk. Plus, ThermaCELL products help provide protection from mosquito borne diseases such as EEE or West Nile Virus.

How the Lantern Works
The ThermaCELL Lantern operates on a single butane cartridge, which heats a repellent mat releasing allethrin, a synthetic copy of a natural insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers, into the air creating a 15 x 15 ft comfort zone. Each repellent mat provides up to four hours of protection and each butane cartridge provides up to 12 hours of operation. The repellent option operates on a single butane cartridge and includes three mats. The light of the new ThermaCELL Lantern functions on three AAA batteries (not included) and can be used with or without the mosquito repellent.

My Take on the Lantern
I tried this out for myself and found it to be so easy to use. On top of this though is how nice it looks. This is well designed to fit into any outdoor setting and not look out of place. The protection does seem to last as well. While I did not test it for 12 hours, I can say that it did provide a nice coverage of protection for myself any my family. I used this when we were on vacation and I found it to be extremely portable and I for one am looking forward to using this once the mosquito season starts in mass here in my own State.
