Product Description

Package Quantity: 1

Before you get stung, bite back! Electronic swatter serves up a punch powerful enough to zap flying pests; yet gentle enough to use around children and pets. Kills several flies or mosquitoes at the same time. Cleans up with ease. Requires two AA batteries (not included). 18 1/2" long x 6" wide.

Piece of garbage - don't waste your money.

I have the smaller version of this device (2AA batt.). Works great. Buy 2 or you will have to be fighting with your spouse to use the one you buy.

Frys mosquitoes and causes them to explode. Great theraputic value.

Will give you a painfull zap too if you contact the metal mesh while it is switched on.

Keep out of the reach of children and stupid adults.

The zapper works wonderfully in general. It's not the greatest thing to use on gnats though, as another reviewer noted. The wire mesh is too coarse to guarantee a bridge across the contacts for such a small bug. For anything bigger (mosquitos, flies, bees, etc...) it works like a charm. You do not need to be a tennis pro to be able to hit the bugs consistently. It only takes a basic level of physical coordination.

For particularly big bugs (such as the carpenter bees that infest my back yard) it only stuns them. So if you're swinging after some paleolithic trophy specimin, be prepared to grind it with your shoe after it falls stunned to the ground.

One warning though: Once you press the racquet's button and hold it for even a second or two, the internal capacitor is charged up to 1500 volts. At that point, even if you're not holding the button down, anything that bridges the contacts between the two mesh grids will get popped. This is great for bugs, but not so much for fingers. The zap won't do any lasting damage to you, but it hurts a bit and numbs up your finger for a minute or two. The lesson here is to always assume the zapper is charged, even if you're not actively holding down the button.

Pros: *You get to hear a loud satisfying "pop" with each kill.

*Don't have to switch out batteries as aften because of longer lasting Ds are used.

*Extra size of it allows for larger capaciters to give it higher voltage.

Cons: *Hitting flies in mid air is a bit hard due to the weight of the thing,

*and its not much use to ground insects because you can't swat it against the ground without breaking it.

*Red warning light only stays on when button is depressed, even though it should stay on because juice will still remain in the capaciters for a while which can cause nasty suprises.

They advertised 'THIS IS NOT your regular WEAK "AA" powered Electronic swatter. Our Electronic swatter uses 2 "D" batteries which gives off a POWERFUL 1,500 bug exploding volts!

What was sent does not use D cells but instead uses 2 'AA' cells in direct contradiction to what they said.

I think that the advertisement should clearly state what actually would ship.

I have used it and it does work very well so I'll keep it.

But in the future I would be reluctant to order from that vendor since I can't be sure that what is advertised would be what they send you.

I ordered 2 of these because I specifically wanted the 1500 volt product that took 2 D size batteries (as advertised). All the other similar items on amazon were the cheaper AA battery versions. I also had to pay $13 dollars in shipping. When I got the order, I was surprised that I received the cheaper AA battery version of the product I ordered. When I called the company to correct the order, I was told they no longer carried the 1500 Volt version so they just substituted it with the ones they sent. They never notified me that they no longer carried the version I ordered and never offered me the option to cancel the order. The point is that I could have purchased the cheap product they sent me here on amazon for $8 each with free shipping. This company no longer carries this product so save yourself the hassle and don't order it from this company.

I bought mine locally from a harbor freight store. You can get it online from their website harborfreight dot com when it's on sale for three ninety nine or seven ninety nine regular price. Mine is a 2 D batteries unit and I have been using it off and on for over 3 years before the batteries started to leak and corroded the terminals. I bought a new one and it seems like it zapped a little better, probably higher voltage at the grids. I think alkaline batteries are best as oppose to rechargeable batteries because they are 1.5 volts each compare to 1.2 or 1.25 volts for rechargeable. The extra small fraction of voltage makes a big difference. Since the leakage, I've only use Energizer batteries because they seem to leak less than other brands.

I live close to the lake and there are a lot of mosquitos in my neighborhood. They like to hang out by the shrubs and vines, especially ivy. Mosquitos are attracted to living mammals because we exhale carbon dioxide. There are times when I see up to 20 mosquitos circling me especially around my legs. I just slowly swing the zapper and they just get caught in the grill of the unit. Sometimes you hear the pop right away but other times they only get stuck. Their body has to be in between the negative and positive part of the grill for it to work. Sometimes I have to shake or blow on the zapper so they fall into right place while holding down the zap button. After they explode, you know that they can't get up and fly away. I think this zapper works better for mosquitos than flies. With flies, their body is plumper and they fly much quicker so you have to give a harder swing. If you get lucky by swinging it just right, he get stuck between the grids.
