DIY Ozonics
#1
I have watched a lot of the shows and read a lot of reviews on these things and decided it wasn't worth the $500 they want for one. After looking around some I ordered the components to make one.  I just ordered the stuff so I'll post pics and results.

I have some switches and wires and a Lipo battery and charger from drone building. Add a charger connector so I don't have to take the battery in and out and some screws and hardware and I'll have $100 or so in it.

The generator and the fan are wired in parallel so it's a simple off/on circuit. Some people add a variable speed fan switch. I'll add a small led to see when it's on.

that's pretty ingenious.
i don't understand how those things are supposed to work though. other than a quiet fan inside a box, what makes it hide your scent?

The generator changed oxygen molecules into ozone molecules and those ozone molecules carry downwind and eliminate your scent...in theory. I don’t know if it works or not. Some guys swear by it and if it didn’t work on some level then I doubt there would be a market for an ozonics closet or ozonics gear bags, etc. I may try a small home made unit one day in the future when I find the time to sit down and make one.

Let us know how it works!

So ozone (as I understand it) basically eats bacteria and scent molecules. It will bind with them and eliminates their scent properties. And Bigbird is so right, you don't need to drop the $$ to benefit. I have been meaning to post this but have not had a chance. While in Illinois my buddy was using a home made unit with the greatest of ease and effectiveness. Below is a link to a similar unit. Basically we just hung up our clothes in a small closet and ran this unit. Bada bing bada boom you have your own home ozonics unit. So each hunt we went out on our clothes were "odor free", even though Ozone actually has a its own identifiable smell if you ask me but I can say we were ate up with deer and they didn't wind us so I was impressed. That being said, taking it into the field is a different story, but I am sure something like what BigBird is doing can be rigged up with some rechargeable batteries. I'll be using this for myself next season.

Ozone destroys organic molecules. Bacteria on your body creates the human odor. Ozone destroys those scent molecules.
There is a lot of info on how to make these things and how much the $$$ units put out.
They are making a killing on them. You know those Scent Crusher bags that are $200? $10 cheapo unit and a Rubbermaid tub do the same thing.
It has to be a huge profit how could they sponsor so many hunting shows and "stars".
One forum the guy did the math on the output vs battery and time it ran and came up with the 350 to 500 mg/h rating.
The link to the unit above is 10 times the output of a Ozonics. So if they can sell a 10X unit for $70 and make a profit........
I have 3S and 4S Lipo and 1 hour charger that also runs on 12v or 115v.

If you want to spend a little more for a pre-made one this place has this. $175 beats the $499 price tag.

It run's on 12v but it has a power supply and a plug that you can use it inside with 115vac. Get the standard 12v connector and a battery and it's portable.

You can make yourself one of those Scent Crusher Totes ($300) a lot cheaper

Plus you can plug it in while driving.


Power Inverter $16

Ozone Generator $45
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J4E...GPL9U124TQ

Then get you a plastic tote at any store and there you go. I would go with a tote that has the locking lid and put a rubber seal on the lid to help seal it up too.

Here you go Home Depot has one for $36 if you want to spend that much that is water tight.

Or for $17 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-20-Gal.../204774811

You dont need to spend that much. There is a 12v ozone generator on Ebay for under 15 and get a plastic tub.
