Thermacell brings more innovation to mosquito control

Techstination feature for Tuesday, August 1, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       It is prime time for mosquitoes and the folks at Thermacell have continued to innovate with devices to help keep them at bay.     The LIV system is designed to cover larger areas in the yard….with an internet connected base.   It can be very effective.   For portability, the latest is the EL-55…that doubles as a rechargeable lantern and uses repellent cartridges.  Product Manager Alex Emmanuele..

“The battery alone… if you’re using the repelling feature will last up to nine hours.  But this product has a built in light feature as well.  The light ranges from 50 to 200 lumens, which can create a fair amount of light for your patio.   And if you’re using both features at the same time,  the battery life is around five and a half hours.”

It sells for about 50 dollars.   Find more at
