COMPETITION: WINNER - Win a Thermacell MR300 Black + Refill Pack

WINNER: iainJ

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 Competition, 236 kb

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, 20 kb

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.
