OFF! PowerPad Lamp & Lantern (Giveaway)

July 4, 2009 by Kailani  
Filed under household, reviews & giveaways

Mosquitoes love Baby Bug. It doesn’t matter how many people are around, for some reason these pesky little creatures always seem to find their way to her. I feel so bad when I see her chubby little legs with red bites. That’s why we’ve always been big fans of OFF! Thanks to Family Review Network, our family had the opportunity to review their new PowerPad Lamp & Lantern.


One tiny PowerPad® mat repels annoying mosquitoes from up to 15ft x 15ft – an average patio or deck. Compare that to just one sq. ft. from a citronella candle. Simply activate the pad by lighting the candle and enjoy proven protection from mosquitoes.


We don’t have a very big back yard so the OFF! PowerPad Lamp & Lantern protected my family no matter where they were outside. And let me tell you, it worked!

Basically, you remove the inner unit and place a candle onto the base. After lighting the candle, insert a repellent pad into the designated slot in the inner unit. Replace it into the base and snap in place. That’s it! Each candle + pad combo provides up to 4 full hours of protection. The heat from the candle activates the repellent pad, releasing proven protection from mosquitoes. In fact, there’s more repelling power in one little pad than 15 citronella buckets combined!

What I really liked about the PowerPad Lamp & Lantern is that not only does it look visually pleasing but I was also able to use it as a lantern by using the enclosed 4 foot pole. This gave me piece of mind because I knew it would be out of the reach of my children and pets.

So if you’re looking for a way to keep mosquitoes away from your family this summer, check out OFF! PowerPad Lamp & Lantern. Your family will thank you!

  96. Shirley Hodge says:

    I am not exactally sure why, probably genetic but mosquitos love me. Might be because I am so sweet or maybe because I am a chocoholic and smell like it to the little critters but whatever they keep me a literal prisoner in the house after dark. Not sure if this would do it but would certainly like to give it a try.

    I would love to win this because it is full blown mosquitoes and bug season here. But… it is also outside grilling season too. We can’t enjoy the outside fellowship and my son-in-law stands at the grill coated with bug spray and skin so soft and still swats bugs. We would all love to enjoy this with him but I get big infected sores when they bite me and the girls are are 5 @ 8 and they just eat them up. This would so help. There is one outside at our house but it doesn’t seem to work.
