ThermaCell Lantern Instructions
1. Remove the battery over on the bottom, Install 4 AA-size batteries (not included), making sure that the batteries are correctly placed in the indicated directions. Replace battery cover. The batteries will provide lantern light for maximum of 200 hours on the LOW setting and 150 hours on the HIGH setting.
2. Remove ThermaCell® mat from wrapper. Mats last a maximum of 4 hours. Mat turns from pale blue to white when repellent has been exhausted.
3. Make sure the “ON/OFF” button is in the “OFF” position. Insert the mat under the grill at the top of the lantern.
4. Remove the top of lantern and globe from base by squeezing the latch tabs and lifting out the top of lantern until it is fully removed from the base.
5. Remove the butane cartridge cap. Screw the cartridge into the center of the lantern globe. Make sure the cartridge is fully inserted by turning it clockwise until it stops. Replace lantern globe on base. One ThermaCell butane cartridge lasts a maximum of 12 hours.
6. To turn on lantern light, push the black switch located on the base of the lantern. Push the switch to “LO” for low light, “HI” for high light and “OFF’” to turn off the light. If lantern light does not turn on, replace batteries.
7. The lantern may be used as a mosquito repellent with or without the light being on. However, for the lantern to repel mosquitoes and flying insects, the mosquito repellent must be activated, To activate mosquito repellent, slide the “ON/OFF” button to “ON” position. The gas will begin to flow.
8. Wait approximately 5 to 10 seconds and then depress the “START” button three to five times in rapid succession.
9. To verify that the mosquito repellent is activated look at the circular view hole located at the top of the lantern. An orange light will glow. If there is no orange light, check to make sure the lantern is “ON” and the cartridge is completely screwed into place. Also check the fuel level in the cartridge. If the fuel level in the cartridge is empty or near empty, remove cartridge and replace with a new ThermaCell® cartridge. Then once again turn the lantern “ON” and depress the “START” button three to five times in rapid succession. Check again to make sure the orange light is glowing.
10. Do not touch the grill; it will be hot after a few minutes. Some visible vapor will appear during use. This is normal. When finished using the lantern, slide the “ON/OFF” button to the “OFF” position. If using the light, push the light switch to “OFF” to extinguish the lantern light. Allow the lantern to cool completely. Lantern is now ready for storage.
