It’s true…it’s all true!!! I get really excited when a product actually does what it claims it will do, so I’m really loving my Off Powerpad Lamps on the deck and porch at The Big Brick House. We’ve now used them several times, and I’ve not been disappointed.
I’m a part of a program called BzzAgent, which is a Word-of-Mouth marketing network where companies look for a certain demographic of BzzAgents, send us their product, and we “Bzz” about it…in this case, though, I can’t STOP the buzzing! I have been truly and repeatedly impressed by this product!
I was actually familiar with the Off Powerpad Lamps, from back when they were first new on the market.
Older Off Powerpad Lamp Design
I was helping give a party which featured an outdoor showing of a movie, and I was sent out on a quest for citronella candles. As luck would have it, I found Off Powerpad Lamps on double-super clearance at K-Mart, and with those little peel-off coupons on them, I think I got paid to buy the lamps. I ended up purchasing (I think) 16 of the lamps, and lined an area of about 50 yards square with them.
No one was bothered by bugs…and this was an area deep in corn country, with a lot of plantlife and brush around it!
New Off Powerpad Lamp Design
Flash forward six years to 2009, and I received the newest version of the Powerpad Lamps. They are so stylish, with a Mission-style design, have virtually no odor, and look so nice on the patio…MUCH better than any stinky citronella!
The only downside to these lamps are that the refills only come in packs of three, and each refill lasts approximately four hours. They’re great for a basic dinner outside, but for a marathon outdoor fun-fest, the lamps need to be refilled. Given the fact that I have quite a collection of the lamps, I would love to see an economy pack of something like 15 refills, instead of just three.
