Where do you buy the permethrin online?
Is breathing in permethrin wise? Certainly going to be effective against mosquitos but not sure breathing it in is a good idea....

The OEM pads don't use permethrin I don't believe.

Thanks everyone for your inputs, awesome to know that these work. We don't go out on our decks at night because of the mosquitoes and some of us are allergic to their stings, and now I will look into this. Apparently CT, HD, Atmosphere also sell Thermacell products so there are more availability options besides Cabela's.

I’ve debated whether to get the gen2 Radius or the butane type at Canadian Tire. I ended up getting the backpacker model and just purchased the isobutane and pass also sold at CT.
Main reason I stayed away from gen2 Radius is the built-in battery once it is done. Not sure if they are replaceable in the future. Unlike the backpacker, you can bring it anywhere as long as you have the isobutane which last very long.

I thought I should mention that I found the older Thermacell lantern at the North Vancouver Walmart a month ago on clearance. I think it was $19.

I haven't tried it yet but I really hope it works for me as I am allergic to mosquito bites. Some good info in this thread regarding refills too.

How do you like the backpacker? Any problem using different types of butane canisters? I'm looking to buy this as well.

I’m curious to understand if it is so effective because the flies and mosquitos know something that we don’t and we are breathing in something we shouldn’t. Just curious and no offence to people who have already trusted it

Question for those that have used this. So it seems you need to buy mats (which last 4 hours) and cartridges (which last 12 hours). Are they both one-time use or can I turn it off and use later? Its likely once you open the mat,it has to be used but is the cartridge the same?
I have 2 handheld ones. The mats are not one time use, I just take it out and put it in a small ziplock bag and put it back in when needed. The butane cylinder can stay in the unit. I just refill my cylinders when they are empty, it's cheaper than buying new ones.

Thermacel silently upgraded the backpacker to gen2 to allow for different types of isobutane. You’ll see in the packaging that says “compatible with all major brands of camping gas canisters”.

The gen1 was so picky with regards to the types of isobutanes.
