Just so I am clear, the backpacker works just with the pads correct? As the canister provides the fuel?

FYI these mosquito repellers only work if the air is very still. If there's any breeze at all it blows the repellent away and leaves you vulnerable.
Great point, thanks for letting us/me know!

Isn't this a different product?
Yeah... That appears to be the Gen 2.0

From their website, it seems that the Gen 2 runs longer, has a better more focused repellent area but it's reduced from 20ft to 15ft and there is a auto-off 2hr timer (which is really nice). I've reached out to Thermacell directly and will update the thread once I hear back.

Yes, its easy, the wick twists out and you refill with the same liquid dilution you'd use for the pads. Couple videos on youtube.

I like these rechargeable ones more than the butane.
How can an ant carry twenty times its body weight, but root beer floats are still delicious?

If this is the case I would totally go for the Rechargeable version over the Backpacker. At work right now and wasn't able to look on YouTube... Time to cancel my Backpacker order lol

I haven't run out of my first 40hr refill, but i tried pulling the wick on the 12 hour one that came with and it comes out easily. Just ordered the refill materials as well.

You should be able to find it at a horse supply store/saddlery, or agriculture store like TSC. Just have to dilute it before using. Protector Of House & Garden and Celebration Spot On are sold in Canada.
