I was a little skeptical about this product but, after reading review after review I decided to go ahead and spend the 30 buck to get one. It is run by small butane cartridges and small repellent pads, both are easy to replace. Their claim of 12 hours of run time per refill seems to be pretty accurate. I use it on fishing and camping trips and it works much better than I had expected. Just simply insert the butane cartridge and repellent pad, turn it on, and click the igniter. It does take 15-30 minutes to really start working so I just try to start it up while we are setting up. It is silent and has virtually no odor. The refills are a bit pricey at 9 dollars or so but, I like not having to spray myself and my kids down with sticky chemicals. They are available almost anywhere sporting goods are sold.  Give this thing a try, I don’t think it will disappoint you!

    Doesn’t work so well in a breeze though which makes it pretty much useless except on the calmest of days.

      Yea, on a windy night their benefit is questionable. Just gotta put it upwind of you and find some trees to fish in to break the wind a bit. They work well in a boat too.

    […] I have several sets of fishing clothes that are treated with Permethrin and well as treating my tent, back pack, and chairs.  Many brands of Deet repellent will probably tell you it should not be worn under clothing, I lightly spray my waist, armpits, and lower legs before dressing, as these are points where ticks can enter your clothing.  I usually use a lower concentrate of deet for under clothing.  Spray down exposed skin with, at least 30%, Deet repellant.  Reapply Deet to clothing and skin as needed.  If the mosquitos are really bad, I will also use a ThermaCell.  See our review of the basic olive green ThermaCell Mosquito Repellent Device HERE.
