Introduction

Being someone who enjoys staying outdoors, I’m always on the hunt for good mosquito repellents because nothing spoils outdoor fun like a few pesky mosquitoes irritating you with the buzzing sound as well their merciless biting. Then, I stumbled upon the Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller online and was eager to try it out.

If you haven’t already heard of Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller, brace yourselves for you sure will be surprised. This Mosquito repellent works wonders. However, it isn’t like any regular repellent which needs to be sprayed or applied. All you have to do is take this stylish device with you wherever you’re going and stay safe from any pesky mosquito.

How does it work? Well, it creates a 15- foot long shield around itself, so to speak. Anything that is within this shield stays safe from mosquitoes. Liquid butane, present inside the device ignites (without any open flame) and heats up a blue mat which contains allethrin. This allethrin evaporates and creates a fume which we can’t smell but mosquitoes apparently find it repugnant. So, all you need to do is simply place it on the patio, a desk or any other location and go about your chores without any worry. The repellent will silently work its magic.

PROS

  • Lightweight and Compact: If you're going out hiking, this gadget can easily fit in your water bottle compartment and will keep the mosquitoes at bay.
  • Easy to use: You simply have to switch it 'on' for it to start working. Nothing complicated about it.
  • Creates no spills
  • Releases no smoke: Unlike coils, incense and similar repellents, Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller creates no smoke and is perfectly safe to use.
  • Releases no fume: You can sit in close proximity to this device without getting overwhelmed by toxic fumes as it releases none.
  • Stylish for outdoor parties and get-togethers
  • Includes integrated mat storage
  • One-time investment: Once you've bought this amazing device, you can rest for a really long time before purchasing any refills.

CONS

  • After using this product, there wasn't anything about it that I didn't like.
  • Perhaps it's only drawback can be that despite being lightweight, it does take up a considerable space while travelling. Therefore, one may find it a little uncomfortable to carry along.
  • Expensive: It is definitely a big one-time investment and you will eventually need to spend money for purchasing its refills as well.

Shopping for Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller online.

While shopping for the Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller online, I noticed that only orders above USD 49, receive free shipping advantages. The repellent costs around USD 24.99 comes in different colours ranging from green, blue to red and grey. The site mentioned that due to certain limitations, they only ship to the contiguous United States.

Competitors:

As far as competitors for Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller are concerned, I did find quite a few online. For instance, the Original Xiaomi Mijia Portable Mosquito Repellent which works along similar lines. It has a built-in fan which rotates to promote uniform evaporation of the medicament which is also said to be fragrance-free. Its dimensions were listed as follows: 96.5×96.5×52.7 mm. However, with not much views online, we’re not sure if the product is to be trusted.
