ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern provides unmatched protection from flying insects as well as ambient light. No more swatting, no more lotions or sprays, and no need to buy expensive bug tents. The ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern is up to 98% effective at repelling mosquitoes, black flies, and no-see-ums. With a lightweight, rugged outdoor structure and easy grip handle, it's easy to transport whether you are hunting, camping, fishing, or watching outdoor sports events. And the lantern and mosquito repellent can be used separately or together, making it even more user friendly.

The ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern operates on a single butane cartridge, which heats a mat releasing allethrin, a synthetic copy of a natural insecticide found in pyrethrum flowers, creating a 15 x 15 foot comfort zone. Each repellent mat provides up to four hours of protection and each butane cartridge provides up to 12 hours of operation.

ThermaCELL appliances are for outdoor use only.

ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern Instructions

  1. Remove the battery cover on the bottom. Install 4 AA-size batteries, making sure that the bateries are correctly placed in the indicated directions. Replace battery cover. The batteries will provide lantern light for up to (a maximum of) 200 hours on the "LO" setting and up to (a maximum of) 150 on the "HI" setting.

  2. Remove one ThermaCELL mat from wrapper. Mats last up to (a maximum of) 4 hours. Mat turns from pale blue to white when repellent has been exhausted.

  3. Make sure the "ON/OFF" button is in the "OFF" position. Insert the mat under the grill at the top of the lantern.

  4. Remove top of lantern and globe from base by squeezing the latch tabs and removing the top of the lantern until it is fully removed from the base.

  5. Remove the butane cartridge cap. Screw the cartridge into the center of the lantern globe. Make sure the cartridge is fully inserted by turning it clockwise until it stops. Replace lantern globe on base. One ThermaCELL butane cartridge lasts uo to (a maximum of) 12 hours.

  6. To turn on lantern light, push the black switch located on the base of the lantern. Push the switch to "LO" for low light, "HI" for bright light and "OFF" to turn off the light. If lantern light does not turn on replace batteries.

  7. The lantern may be used as a mosquito repellent with or without the light being on. However, for the lantern to repel mosquitoes and flying insects, the mosquito repellent must be activated. To activate the mosquito repellent, slide the "ON/OFF" button to the "ON" position. The gas will begin to flow.

  8. Wait approximately 5 to 10 seconds and then depress the "START" button three to five times in rapid succession.

  9. To verify that the mosquito repellent is activated, look in the circular view hole located at the top of the lantern. An orange light will glow. If there is no orange light, check to make sure the lantern is "ON" and the cartridge is completely screwed into place. Also check the fuel level in the cartridge. If the fuel level in the cartridge is empty or neat empty, remove cartridge and replace with new ThermaCELL cartridge. Then once again turn the lantern "ON" and depress the start button three to five times in rapid succession. Check again to make sure the orange light is glowing.

  10. Place the lantern on a flat stable area with the grill facing up. Do not touch the grill; it will be hot after a few minutes. Some visible vapor will appear during use. This is normal. When finished using the lantern, slide the "ON/OFF" button to "OFF" position. If using the light push the light switch to "OFF" to extinguish the lantern light. Allow lantern to cool completely. Lantern is now ready for storage.

  11. To replace a used mat, turn off lantern and allow to cool completely. Push the used mat out by inserting a fresh mat.

Love It!

I personally use the ThermaCELL and will run the unit for a short period of time and then turn it off and I do not have to change the mat when turning it back on, there is still scent left. The ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent effectively repels mosquitoes, black flies, no-see ums & sand flies with a scent that lingers continuously for up to 4 hours per mat. So weather you use it for 4 hours straight or in intervals you will still have up to 4 hours of scent repellant for each mat. Each butane cartridge last up to 12 hours. Love it!

I've got both the ThermaCell lantern and the hand-held unit and love them both! I use the lantern around our patio and in the evening the light is great to add just enough for our gathering. The hand-held unit is great to take along on the boat or when traveling. These things really work!

I have the Therma Cell Lantern, and the unit works flawlessly. I took it up to our cottage for Memorial Day weekend. Our cottage is in the woods and the mosquitoes are particularly bad this year. The instructions were easy to follow making set up a breeze. Everything fits into place quickly and easily. I took the Lantern outside where we sit and eat, and within minutes of turning on the unit we noticed a significant difference in the amount of mosquitoes in the area. Basically, while the Lantern is on there are no mosquitoes within a 20 ft. radius. It only takes one click to ignite the butane and the LED lights are extremely bright and the two light settings are very convenient. The repellant pads slide in with no trouble and the old one is pushed out. I am extremely pleased with the performance of this Lantern. I give the Therma Cell Lantern 5 stars.

I never write reviews but I wanted to say how much I love the ThermaCell Lantern. It really works. I can sit outside and enjoy my deck without wearing bug spray. We just moved into a new house and we are surrounded by woods. There are thousands of mosquitoes here in northern Michigan. We were getting bit all the time. I have a baby girl that I dont want to put bug spray chemicals on and when I have the ThermaCell lantern on we dont need it. The mat lasts about 4 hours and as soon as the time was up I started to notice the mosquitoes coming back to get me. So you do not want to be without the refills. This product is awesome and I am going to buy one for my dad on fathers day. I will be telling all my friends to buy one too. Thanks Northline Express!

I ordered this item last summer after having read the review in Consumer Report. I can now add my own rave. Living in south Texas the mosquito population is annoyingly huge. My patio remained livable and enjoyable all summer and fall and I am now a confirmed user of ThermaCELL. I have recommended the product to everyone I know. Thank you for a great product that does what it says. Patio Enjoying Anne
