Mosquito Repelling Lantern
Since summer is going to come around for those of you living in the northern hemisphere, it makes perfect sense to prepare for your outdoor activities, and that includes on ramping up on anti-pest sprays and lotions, just in case camping is high on your list this year. Of course, if you are going to spend plenty of time outdoors, carrying a lantern around with you would be an extremely good idea.
Why not take the route of what most consumer electronics manufacturers do, and that is through the magic of convergence? This is where the Mosquito Repelling Lantern comes in, working as a standard outdoor lantern that is equipped with d-cis/trans allethrin, a repellent that has been field-tested by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and is proven to repel up to 98% of mosquitoes.
The lantern will rely on a 2.5″ x 1.5″ mat that has been saturated with the repellent which rests on a metal grill right on top of the lantern, where a butane-fueled heater will vaporize the repellent in order to create a 15′ x 15′ zone that is mosquito-free – other biting insects included. The eight LEDs within the lantern is capable of producing an efficient glow, powered by a quartet of AA batteries. The Mosquito Repelling Lantern is going for a highly affordable $36.95 if you are interested.
