Thermacell mat bulk replacements.

Post by scottmac » Sat Feb 24, 2018 1:36 pm

Has anyone found a place to buy the mats by themselves. I know how to refill the bottles, but couldn’t find the mats last time I looked.

PS: Just found these on eBay. Cheap AF! Anyone tried them?

I tried them last year but I didn't think they were as good and a few few off them didn't burn properly .
But I also thought they felt damp so might have been a dud box .

Ok, cheers mate, worth a shot at that price, but should have originals as backup I reckon.

I use them regularly. Perhaps not as good as the originals but still work OK. The pads themselves are slightly thicker and around half the size of the originals. I shove two in the unit when the mozzies are thick. I think I did some sums at one point and by using these pads and refilling the butane bottles I could get 12 hours of use (pads and gas) for less than $3 compared to the original cost of about $8.

The Mortein one's are a bit thicker and a bit tight to slide in / out, but and seem to work fine

Cheers mate, I’ll give them a go.

You can't get the Mortein ones at the moment at shops... no one is selling them anymore, well the shops I went to looking for them didn't have them, that was about 4 bigger supermarkets in palmo/rural area

Just soak the old used pads in bushmans or aerogaurd in a jar, work just as good

Some links that might be useful if they've not been seen already. When it comes to re-coating the pads yourself, I guess you should be careful with what you use and how you use it, these are insecticides after all.

I use the ars mat12 as well. Two in the thermacell at a time. A 3rd resting on top if the mozzies are thick. Ive had bad batches of pads but all in all effective and cheap.
