The Radius can operate while charging,  so if you do have somewhere to plug it in, you can fire it right back up. The battery powers an internal heating element that silently warms and activates the repellent. Once activated, the repellent disperses to create an invisible zone of protection that keeps mosquitoes from entering into your outdoor space.
