For folks that are on the fence about these....
I am naturally a person who is VERY skeptical about products like these. I grew up in Minnesota where the mosquito is the state bird and you can slather nasty repellant on yourself to have a chance against them. But, I picked up one of the handheld thermacells a few years ago and gave it a chance when we camped. Well, the damn thing worked, and has worked many times since. Some notes:
- it won't work when windy, so always have backup repellant with you
- let it run about 15 min in the area you want it to cover before you need it if possible
- have extra fuel cartridges and inserts with you. They actually last a decent amount of time for their size, but try finding replacements when you are out camping - not gonna happen
- there is very little/if any smell from them. The small smell you might get a whiff of is not bad
- we just put it on a picnic table between a few of us, and let it do it's thing
if I needed a larger one or a second small one, I would be all over this. Nice catch OP

My experience is very similar.

We have one we bring out in the evening when there isn't any breeze and never get a bite or even see one. When we have more people over we might bring a few more out so we can have better coverage

Nice find, and thanks for the link to the inventory checker- that made all the difference. My three closest stores didn't have any, but one store 25 minutes away did. Got 2 for me, and 2 for family members. I've been looking at these for a couple of months- did the research, reviews are generally really good, just had trouble swallowing the $50 price tag.

The main difference between the size is in how long the cartridges last (12 vs 18 hours), right? I had assumed based on the size/price the larger one would've provided more range than the mini does at 15ft. I'll try to pick two of these up over the weekend, just thinking about which is a better value.

Love the idea of it, but I'm guessing there are not often sales on refills... nor compatible generic refills that work as well...

Will also have to look at bug zappers with octenol

For those unable to get this deal @ HD, there is also a good deal at Costco:

https://www.costco.com/thermacell...57887.html

It is $55 vs $37, but it comes with an additional 40-hr cartridge which normally retails ~$20. So you may argue that Costco is an even better discount for now.

I just bought the costco combo a couple of weeks ago - for those curious, the 40hr cartridge is shipped together but packaged separately (retail Radius 2 package and retail 40-hr cartridge package)..

As one of the original comments said, if it's windy these things don't work but if you're sitting in a hunting blind or out on the porch where you can shield the unit and let it do its thing they work really well

Slightly off topic but does anyone have a suggestion for house fly repellent/killer? When we eat any aromatic foods on our patio area (korean table-top bbq etc), it only takes minutes for flies to show up.

Really annoying!

Not really. The main difference is the type of power source as well as type of repellent .
The higher priced one uses rechargeable battery as power source that lasts 6.5 hours per charge. The active ingredient of the repellent is 4% metofluthrin contained in cartridges that lasts 18 or 40 hours.

The cheaper one uses butane as power source that lasts 12 hours per can. The active ingredient of the repellent is 21.97% d-cis/trans allethrin contained in wet mats that lasts 4 hours per mat.

Just to be clear... the butane-based thermacells work great. I am a mosquito magnet, and these are just about the only thing that has ever worked for me.

I had great hopes for the electronic versions linked here... but despite having the same "stuff" they just don't work as well. I don't know why. Maybe they don't get as hot. But definitely buy the butane based ones instead.

Dont get the butane ones... the fuel for mine only lasted half as long as it was supposed to. Lots bitch about this.. they run out of fuel cartridges way before the chemical pads.

Tue redius is amazing... battery is superior. We use it all the time so bugs don't bother while we hot tub.

I think the radius uses a different chemical
