I only just now bought several units due to being skeptical about it's effectiveness, however due to repeatedly hearing positive word of mouth and it even being recommended by my veterinarian, I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised and very happy with the product. A major reason i had kept from purchasing any until now was my concern that it would not work or be safe for my purposes - which primarily is walking my dogs outside. I have a very large "yard" and my house sits almost in the middle, so it takes a long time to take a walk around the whole yard (which I do several times daily, whether it be a 5/10 minute potty break or a longer walk for exercise and leisure for the dogs). Mosquitos are a HUGE problem here, though, and makes being outside unbearable (even my dogs would sometimes become distracted by them since as many as 20 or 30 mosquitos at a time might fly all around us and follow us....) my dogs would even resort to biting at the air in an attempt to stop the mosquitos lol. Out of concern for their health and comfort (as well as my own) I quickly called my vet and, on her recommendation, went and bought 4 of these clip on units. I wondered about the fact that we wouldn't be stationary, but instead more like "stop and go" as we alternate between walking and pausing as the dogs stop to either smell, investigate, or potty... Well, I've only used the clips on's 3 times now (since I just bought them and only been on 3 walks) and have been almost astonished to see no mosquitos around us, especially the dogs. The few mosquitos I saw would come near us and then fly elsewhere. I hope this continues to be my experience, because its just wonderful. Also, as I'm very cautious when it comes to my animals, i was still concerned about the "toxicity" to my dogs, despite the assurances from my vetrinarian- so instead of clipping the units onto their harnesses, I attach them to their leashes about 2 feet up from where the leash and harness clasp together. This way, the unit is nowhere near their faces and also not resting on or consistently blowing on their fur and bodies, but instead it perfectly hangs above the rear section of them, just before their tails. This also enables me to "control" the units by using the leash to move it to their sides or anywhere around them to ensure they are protected as we walk. So far, the only small issue I have is that because of the 360degrees rotating clip, it is impossible to turn the unit off unless I use both hands to grab and turn the unit off, having to carefully make sure I don't twist too far and open the refill slot. It can be annoying because apart from sometimes holding things like a cell phone, I am always holding onto leashes when I come to my front door and need to turn the units off. It is a little frustrating, yet still a small price to pay to have a shield from those horrid mosquitos!

I loved the old ones - last season & before. I know that the refills for the new round style fit in the old style, but they are NOT AS EFFECTIVE as the previous ones. (I don't care about the size or shape) I don't know what has changed - an ingredient, or quality or quantity of an ingredient - but something is different. With the old refills, I turned it on and within 10 minutes, mosquitoes did not come near me. I am a mosquito magnet. I am also allergic to fragrances and chemicals. These have always worked wonderfully, without odor. I loved them and recommended them to everyone. But these new refills, even with a brand new refill and being on for an hour, mosquitoes are landing on me. I am very disappointed. Please bring back the OLD FORMULA!

Product not good

By Piris

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

The first and second Clip on was 5 star. The one round one the mosquito still bite me. Change the way that use to. Also I bought 2 clip on refill and the bar code ending on 19 work and the one with bar 20 isn't fix in the clip on

Fan didn't spin in 2 out of 3 units.

By Angela

from Boston, MA, United States

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

I bought 3 of these for my family. Only one worked. In two of them, the fans would not spin. I changed the batteries just in case that was the issue. It was not. These were purchased at a local supermarket and the packaging was in perfect condition, so there should have been no reason for malfunction other than poor quality control.

This idea is absolutely BRILLIANT

By SweetSookie

from Peoria, AZ, United States

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

This one that I have is the second one I have bought and it was worth every penny! Ice had this one for over a year now and have not changed the refill because I only use it occasionally and it is STILL working to repel the mosquitos! Hats off to you, OFF people- Thanks for a product that does what it says it does. How refreshing! I highly recommend this product. No smell no noise and very hard for little hands to get to the working parts so less chance of coming into contact with repellent....

This product works great, but the newer model...

By Mosquito Survivor

from Portland, OR, United States

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

I have had all versions of this product from when they were first released until now. The first version was awesome. Long Battery life, durable, good strong motor on the fan. Teardrop design to keep it on your belt. 4 batteries made it last all day/night. The second generation was okay, but they fell off your belt way to easy. Cheaper clip can break. swivel design was a gimmick than made it harder to keep from falling off. The new round model are terrible design wise. They still repel the same it seems, However, The clip part is weaker, and one broke first use. cheaper fan motors. If you sit in a camp chair, it will either break off your belt or fall off. Either the oblong or round versions don't last as long on batteries. Bring back the Original Model. It didn't have the swivel, and because all of the weight was below the belt hook, it didn't fall off. When I go camping, I am out for a long time. The batteries in the new ones need to be changed more than once a day which is annoying. The new refills, even though they say work with both older models, frequently don't allow the fan to turn on without some messing around with it. BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL MODEL PLEASE!!!!

Unstoppable

By Jbw Alaska

from Chugiak, ak

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

What a wonderful invention. No chemicals on your skin. Works well in rural Alaska. We use them all the time doing lawn chores. Two of these units have survived long periods of miss treatment. One was covered in snow all winter after being lost logging. It's survived, was taken apart, cleaned and works well today. The second unit was completely submerged. It was taken apart, dried, cleaned then sprayed dry with an electronic duster. After 24 hours of dring time, replaced the batteries in the unit works like new.

If I could give it negative numbers I would!!

By midorijoy

from Conroe, TX

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

I just put a brand new refill into my Off clip On unit tonight, and went outside for 10 minutes. I came back in with 11 mosquito bites, and I would've had even more, but I killed at least 7 more mosquitos as soon as they landed on me. 9 of my 11 bites were on the side of my body that the clip on was attached to!!! Great concept, but does not work AT ALL.

Have been using it for months. The best outdoor one I have found. I bought it a year or so ago, took it out this year and was really impressed. I will try it on my boat at sunset in a couple of weeks, if it works there, I will be really impressed. This is great. I love it.

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

I love hanging out on my back patio, but was bombarded by mosquitoes. I tried everything: homemade spray concoctions, citronella candles, planting lemon grass, a bug zapper, even a mosquito "bomb" that would kill the nest (which doesn't work if the nest is in your neighbors' yard!), and of course, Off! body spray. This is the only thing you can turn off and on, no smell, doesn't stain your clothes, and it actually works! LOVE! ❤️❤️❤️

Beware of refill pack compatibility

By Dave

from Crofton, MD, United States

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

The old refills for the "teardrop-shaped" clip on AND the refills for the round shaped clip on HAVETHE SAME UPC, and they're completely incompatible with each other. The package color scheme is different, but to reuse the UPC on a different product makes no sense. Granted there are subtle hints on the package that show the 2 styles, but some of us sight-and-shopping-time-challenged older shoppers may not readily notice these differences right away. Finally, I seriously doubt that the new refills work as longas the old ones, as the old teardrop refills had a fluid reservoir, but the new ones do not.

I bought the clip-on a week ago. When I used it, is there suppose to have smell coming out from the clip? Because there isn't any smell coming out so I'm wondering if is efficient.

It Really Works!

By ErinF

from Long Beach, État de New York, États-Unis

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

I tried this for the first time today as the moment I walked outside earlier I started being literally attacked by mosquitos (really, even when I got up and walked away they followed me!)...My mom had recently bought the product to use at a baseball game but didn't really end up using it so I ran inside and grabbed it hoping it might help a bit. I was really happy to find that once I had this thing on me, there were no mosquitos around me anymore at all! I swear I even watched one fly right towards me and when it got closer it literally turned around and flew away. Great product, works so well.

I have had this new version for months. Maybe I'm just brain dead, as my husband is too, but we can't even get the top off of it to put the insert in! What!!!!! I just keep using my "old blue" and I guess I'm protected because there are no indicators on it to know whether the insert is empty or not. Help!

I was attending a lot of football games in South TX where there are a lot of mosquitos. I started wearing an Off Clip-on to the games and was amazed at how well it works! While other patrons were swatting at mosquitos and getting bitten, I did not have any pests to deal with wince I was wearing the Off clip-on.

I live in a South Louisiana mosquito paradise. It's so nice to be able to sit outside without applying bug spray once an hour. I'm always getting more bites than others around me and this product saves me. Even using it past the 14 days (but less than 12 hours) I still am not getting bit.

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

This is the only product that works for my husband. He is a mosquito magnet. But the new refills do not have the indicator light to know when the product is no longer effective. I know it lasts 12 hours but who is going to keep track of the minutes/hours your are using this product??? Really, that is what you want your customers to do now??

I have TWO old dispensers in my car for my son and I to use when we go fishing and another TWO at home that my wife and I use when gardening and lawn care. NOW NONE of these work well with the new version. Cannot tell when the cartridge is actually void of repellent. I am not buying FOUR NEW fan units.

My rating is based upon the older fan unit being used with the newer cartridge version. I was a BIG fan of the old system!!!

Love these clip ons!

By AlwaysMrsM

from Key Largo, FL

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Off Clip-On Mosquito Repellent Starter Kit (71703):

I have used these now for several years and love them! They work! I will admit that they can be a little expensive between the refills and the battery replacements but as a mosquito magnet in the Florida Keys, I will go to any lengths to protect myself. I don't think the 12 hour run time is accurate though. And I'm not happy that there is a new style (round) device because I have so many of the old style and can't get the refills in the store. So I have to search on ebay and buy as many as I can to work in the gray clip ons that I have.

The new design is only good for one time use, which ends up being too expensive. You can't tell when the product is out. I'm a huge fan of the old one and was sad to see its no longer available. With the old one you could see the level of citronella and use it as needed.
