I was hoping to use the OFF!® PowerPad® Lamp and Lantern that SC Johnson sent me to try during our recent camping trip to Vega State Park. A campground near a lake sounded like mosquito heaven to me and I wasn’t looking forward to hosing myself down with stinky, yucky tasting bug spray.
Well, we never ended up using it since the mosquitoes were hiding in the aspen forest. The one time we ventured into the forest for a hike we were covered in OFF! Deep Woods® Sportsmen. Glad we weren’t camping in it!
However, I noticed walking around the campgrounds than at least 60% of the RV campers had a OFF!® PowerPad® Lamp and Lantern in their campsite, either hanging from a pole or placed on a table. I talked to a few of the RVers who told me they really liked OFF’s new product. They said it was easy to use and effective. They also liked how attractive lamp looked. When you’re spending up to $250K on an RV, you want your campsite to look nice.
And if you’re wondering why I don’t use it at home, it’s because we have an electric Amcor IntelliTrap Mosquito Trap that does a wonderful job 24/7. It should considering how much I paid for it!
About the OFF!® PowerPad® Lamp and Lantern
The OFF!® PowerPad® Lamp and Lantern provides powerful mosquito protection with a pleasant, warm glow for outdoor parties. Heat-activated pads deter mosquitoes from an area up to 225 square feet, about the size of an average deck or patio, while the average citronella candle covers one square feet.
The Lantern is similar to the Lamp, but includes a convenient four foot pole so that you can place it anywhere in your yard. Each candle and pad combo provides up to four hours of protection. Each refill pack contains three pads and three candles, providing up to 12 total hours of repellency per pack.
Did I mention the product has the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, too?
