The butane hack was easy. I have two cartridges that I refill regularly with butane.

The only challenge as finding the right size butane filling tip.

I bought a cheap butane can from a big box store but the filling tip is too big. Bought (overpaid) for another from a head shop with multiple size tips. There was one that works with the cheap butane can, very pleased.

This plus pads from Malaysia and I am good to go.

P. S. If you want to learn the butane hack, just google it.

it will be good if the buyer can share the receipt i went to the markham store that the buyer went, they said they never sell at 14.97 before. will be better for him to share the receipt so that we can PM at store. I asked 3 cashiers. seasonal and also store manager,

We have one, and I find if there is literally no wind, it works. Unfortunately there is *always* at least some wind, or at least, very short time periods of little wind, so to us, it's not a lot more useful than mosquito coils.

Honestly it was a Busy Bee convenience store. They had a butane can for filling lighters. In the cap there were removable plastic tips in various sizes.

I'm sure most convenience stores or head shops would have it.

Been using these for years, hunting camp, camping and now I use the patio one at home. They just work.

Always be down wind from it, and it will work even in windy conditions.

I wore net mesh over a sweater in the hot weather with a hat under the mesh to keep them away from my skin where the mesh rested. When I used Thermacell...not a mosquito and, in fact, I could strip down to bare chest for a few minutes just to eliminate the sweat. Got so comfortable that I fell asleep in the stand and missed seeing a mother and cubs followed by another 2-year old male. This is a still from the video taken while i was sound asleep...Look at Momma bear looking up. She knew I was there...snoring. Thermacell.
Can’t believe you were bear hunting. Wow! Nice pic.

Hey, I was hoping someone could help explain the advantage of these repellents over a typical mosquito coil? The coils are really cheap (like 4-5 bucks for ten), seem to have a similar exclusion zone for mosquitoes, and last five hours each. For a 'static' repellent used on a patio or deck, I'm failing to see why a thermacell is worth the large price premium?

They make generic ones you can buy on Aliexpress/eBay, maybe not the most trustworthy but I think some are Raid brand, hell of a lot cheaper than thermacell but haven't ordered as they wouldn't get here till it snows at this rate.

Mosquito coils would be waaaaay cheaper.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

I actually find the mosquito coils from dollarama works much better than the thermocell. Now I had 5 coils surrounding my picnic table with camp chair. when I used the thermocell, the mosquitos actually went by it and landed on me and I was in front of the thermocell. There was next to no wind. I dunno if mine was defective, but certainly not worth the cost. I'll stick with the coils.

I'm also not satisfied with Thermacell. I had 3 of them around me (within arms reach), and I was still bitten a bunch. I do prefer the dollarrama coils

Shows $0 at a bunch of stores and $39.98 for the stores sold out in Winnipeg.
Picking up an order later so I'll check it out.

Possible YMMV?

How are these anyway ? Anyone used them before?
I know Canadian Tire recently had a different unit on sale for $24.99 from $49.99 or so.

Feedback would be appreciated as I've been wanting to get something for the patio.

Thanks
Any updates on this? My stores show $0 on stocktrack too.
