Here is a link that I was trying to find forever to post here for you fellas. Some guy posted it on my fishing forum and I forgot to tag it as a favorite. These butane cartridges get expensive and I got about 10 left over from this turkey season so I am going to make a bunch to share with my buddies.

That's a lot of hassle to save .5$ ....besides, the mats run out at about the same time and they're sold together.

think about saving 10 or 15 dollars a season over a life time of hunting... its alot of money saved from being able to just refill the fuel bottles.

I've learned to rummage through my buddies hunting gear and just take their cartridges when they aren't looking. I haven't paid for a cartridge in years!!! \:D

EXPENSIVE!!! They are like $8 + now.

I can get a can of butane fuel for $4 and fill up 5-6 cartridges easy.

Now if I could only find a super cheap deal on those repellent pads.

what i have done to mine is. i took the brass fitting out and use a wood screw to pull the inter seal out and then reinsert the brass fitting and take the butane and fill it right up.

that way you don't waste no fuel and your hands don't freeze off when filling it back up.

Now that you have a bunch of filled butane tanks, what do you do about getting the pads refreshed?

Just saw this thread and thought I’d help
Just buy “Gordon's® Permethrin-10 Livestock & Premise Spray” ( you can get it at Tractor Supply for around $8 ) and mix it one part Permethrin to six parts distilled water.
There are a couple ways to recharge the pads
1st – you can put it in an eye dropper (visine bottle) or similar drop application type bottle. Put 2 to 4 drops in the center of your used Thermacell pad and let it soak in for ten minutes or so. Recharges your Thermacell pad for about 8 hours of use.
An 8oz bottle from Tractor Supply, at six to one mix ratio and using 4 drops maximum per pad refill, should last you about 1,200-1,400 refills.
2nd - As I'm sure you know, when you use up the effective solution on a new Thermacell pad, it turns white. To recharge this feature, I just use food coloring. (I use yellow, green, even pink ( lol ) instead of blue) What I do is make up a batch in a small jar ( like a baby food jar or similar type ) with 1 tablespoon permethrin, 6 tablespoons distilled water and just a few drops of food color. Then soak your used pads. They will recharge and re-color..

Hope this helps

Later
