How To Refill your ThermaCell...

Hey guys, I found a sweet video on how to refill your thermacell's butane cartridge for cheap. I just tried it and it works great.

Check the video out here...

I used a drywall screw instead of the tool he uses to remove the check valve. replaced the brass fitting and filled with a cheapo can of butane. works like a new thermacell cartridge...

Hahahahaha...It's been too dry here for a lot of mosquitos. But we have the real tiny one's flying around. They're just as hateful if not more worrisome.

Thanks for that. I've been

Thanks for that. I've been through 6 cartridges already and it gets a little expensive. I use a head net until the thermacell kicks in but I hate the thing. I tried to fill a cartridge  but was not aware of the check valve.

Nice, I bought one earlier

Nice, I bought one earlier this year, but have yet to use it.  It'll be put to it's first test come spring turkey season.  I'll have to bookmark that video for future use.

refill

Now, that's some good poop!! Thanks for listing that link. I normally use mine a good bit here in early season and than goodness I had it with me in Alaska. It does get expensive feeding those butane refills though!

ThermaCell butane cartridges
ThermaCell butane cartridges provide a heat source for several popular products, including mosquito repellent systems, wild animal scent appliances for hunting and portable curling irons and hair straighteners. These products require a butane-filled cartridge which can be exchanged for a full replacement cartridge when empty. The cartridge manufacturer installs a check valve in the cartridge to prevent the consumer from refilling the cartridge. This check valve is easily removed to make refilling the cartridge possible.
