Bedford, MA (January 2010) - ThermaCELL, manufacturer of the only portable, butane-operated, area mosquito repellent, is introducing a rugged outdoor lantern for spring 2010 that 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. Plus, the lantern is lightweight making it easy to transport whether you are hunting, camping, fishing, or watching outdoor sports events.

The Outdoor Lantern has many updated features: eight LEDs offer twice as much light as earlier ThermaCELL models; the easy-grip handle makes the lantern easy to carry or hang, and the lantern weight, at under a pound, makes transport a breeze. In addition, the lantern and mosquito repellent can be used separately or together. "We have created a more rugged lantern for outdoor enthusiasts who want a portable, light-weight solution to mosquitoes. By offering customers a dual function lantern that has a highly effective repellent as well as illumination options, we are making outdoor activities safer and more enjoyable," said Bill Schawbel, president of The Schawbel Corporation.

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.
