Gear Check: ScentLok OZ Radial 400B Ozone Generator
Scent management for hunters is of vital importance for success.
Used cars, car rental places, hospitals, senior care and more use ozone to clean and purify.
In just the last few years, the hunting industry has embraced the use and that has led to some great technological advances.
One of those is the ScentLok OZ Radial 400B, which is said to provide 360 degrees of air purification.
I will not be getting into the science of ozone, but I will explain how versatile and strong this unit is and how it works for me.
First off, the unit has a rechargeable battery with 8 hours of use and has indicator lights to show battery life, which is helpful in checking prior to use.
There are four operating modes: regular, cycle, boost and boosted cycle. The unit runs and rests in 30-minute intervals and this continues for three hours and in boost modes it doubles the ozone output.
Also, a great little feature is it also acts as a mobile charger for cell phones, tablets and more. CycleClean™ moderates on/off to allow maximum output and efficiency.
It can be used in a treestand for scent management.
Although the unit is not intended for in-the-field use I personally can’t see why you can’t hang it properly and use it to provide some scent management. This of course is an opinion and you can decide for yourself.
I will be taking this unit out bear hunting with me this fall if drawn or during deer season. The tether makes for easy carry and hanging when not in or in use.
The cylinder design provides not only 360 degree of coverage but great storage in the bottle holder in your pack or in a cup holder in your vehicle. The soft-touch outer coating is easy to grab even when your hands are wet, and the unit runs quietly.
I also have used it to clear unwanted smells out of rooms and vehicles and find it works very well. I’ve put it in an old refrigerator that was still running but had unwanted food screaming “help me!” so I put the unit in there and the next day, no more smell.
I look forward to using this unit this fall.
