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.
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.
*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.
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 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.Read more ›

I made mine into a "homemade" tazer for fun. I later tested the output voltage and it runs around 750 volts. It's really painfulPublished 13 hours ago by Bryce
