Thermacell Introduces New Repellent Camp Lantern

Bedford, Mass. (Winter 2015) – Thermacell® Repellents Inc., a leading manufacturer of area mosquito repellent products, is introducing the new durable, water-resistant Repellent Camp Lantern that provides bright light and repels mosquitoes.  With a heavy-duty rubberized base, 50 hours of light at its highest setting, and the ability to keep biting mosquitoes, black flies and no-see-ums at bay, this lantern makes camping more enjoyable.

“The Thermacell Repellent Camp Lantern is a natural addition to our portfolio of outdoor camping products,” said Allegra Lowitt, Thermacell chief marketing officer. “We married our patented mosquito repellent technology with the most desired features campers want in a rugged lantern, such as bright light, low battery indicator, emergency light settings, and a hanging hook.” Outdoor enthusiasts can now select one product to repel biting pests and illuminate their campsite.

This versatile lantern has a weighted bottom so it can’t easily be tipped, as well as a contoured bail for easy transport and storage. The olive-colored base is accented with black rubber that protects the lantern if dropped or knocked over.  Battery life indicator changes color showing remaining power. With three light settings and SOS for emergency situations, the lantern globe can be detached to increase the intensity of the light for maximum brightness. The base hook also allows the lantern to be suspended in a tent or campsite from above for hands-free base camp operations. The Thermacell Repellent Camp Lantern functions as both a lantern and highly effective mosquito repellent simultaneously or separately.
