The ThermaCELL Radius is a rechargeable, scent-free, compact mosquito repellent unit. Like previous ThermaCELL repellent units, the Radius sets up an invisible zone of protection from mosquitoes based on heat dispersal of a natural repellent chemical.

The ThermaCELL Radius is for outdoors people who know how effective ThermaCELL is at repelling mosquitoes and want the simplicity and convenience of a rechargeable battery rather than dealing with butane fuel canisters.
