WINNER - Win a Thermacell MR300 Black + Refill Pack Competition

© Thermacell


Thermacell's Zone Mosquito Repellent technology, stop mosquitoes before they get close enough to bite or bother you. Now you can say goodbye to messy chemical sprays and lotions.

Thermacell technology uses heat activated repellent to create an invisible, scent-free, zone of protection from mosquitoes, midges and other small flying insects. The devices are powered by a small fuel cartridge that provides the cordless, portable heat that is directed to a metal grill. A small mat saturated with repellent is inserted on top of the metal grill. Heat disperses the repellent from the mat into the air, creating the zone of protection. In this way, mosquitoes and midges are stopped in flight instead of on one's skin, so Thermacell reduces both bites and the annoyance of buzzing mosquitoes and midges.

The repellent, allethrin, is a synthetic copy of a natural repellent found in chrysanthemum plants.

How it works - Thermacell MR300

There are three models in the range. Two are aimed at the outdoor market the MR300 and the Backpacker. The MR300 is a portable device that you could attach to a rucksack whilst hiking. The backpacker is a standalone unit that fits on screw fitting gas cartridges giving you really long run times, up to 180 hours depending on the size of the cartridge? There is o the Halo Mini which is aimed at the garden market. Essentially they all work in the same way it's just a variance on the style and shape of the product.

This competition has now closed.

But is it REALLY going to work against midges?! We need some brave Scot to go out and, say, belay someone on a still summer evening in Glen Nevis and report back!

Funnily enough the moment this was submitted I sent a message to Dan saying GET ONE OF THESE ON REVIEW NOW, so watch this space :-)

I need this product so bad. Does it have a loop for a krab so it can be attached to a harness?

my thoughts exactly. Can't wait to see reviews!

If this would really work against midges on still days then I can see a lot of sales happening.

Maybe a network along Stanage every 20m set to turn on if the wind drops :-)
