It uses 6 C batteries secured behind a screwed on backing. I go months before changing the batteries if I use a good quality battery, but it is not triggered that much during the day. Changing the batteries is not a snap due to the four screws, but that is probably safer than a snap in back for the outdoors. I would not suggest exposing this to the elements since it does not look like it is completely water tight. Just get an open faced bird house and stick it in there and it'll be fine. As for my pups, it sort of works on one (low energy) and doesn't work at all on the other (high energy). My intentions are not to keep the dogs out, but they have access to the same places the cat does so sometimes they trigger it. Perhaps if I turned the dial to the upper portion of the dog setting it would be more effective on dogs. I have also observed that the weaker the batteries get the less sensitive the sensor is, so using a good quality battery will get you better results. I have put cheapos and pricey batteries in this unit and have noticed a considerable difference in terms of longevity and effectiveness with the pricier batteries.
Overall this unit is very effective for cats, and I believe it could be great for other animals too if aimed well and kept out of the elements. The sound has become more audible over time (minus 1 star), but keeping the unit away from the elements will allow it to remain effective for years.
I guess it all depends on your use of the item. I also use it in a way that would make my ratings higher.
I have a few solar kilns near the edge of the woods. I dry expensive hardwoods in them.
This device sits on a ledge where field mice and rats like to crawl up and enter the building through roof air vents.
Those air vents need to be opened. So I use one of these for each 12 x25 kiln-building. They are indoors and not exposed
to the elements except high heat which gets up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
I see no signs of mice or rats at all. Never. I have actually witnessed a few climb in only to get blasted by this unit and they scram.
If the batteries die and I don't get to it in time- they will make the place their home in short order and it only takes a few mice to make a mess.
Then the snakes also come in to get the mice.
The kilns have no electricity so the battery deal works. I have lost a few units to bad batteries that leak. Which I believe the heat there causes this.
But this is not a fault of the unit.
I would like to see an easy open battery tray instead of 4 screws. Just to make it easier to maintain.
Without these units my losses would be great and I can't recommend these enough.
Out of the weather they last many years and the only failures I have had were from bad batteries which I have seen even from the top dollar brands,
1) There is a cover on the back with a very thin gasket to keep out rainwater. The cover must be removed to install or replace the batteries, but it is very difficult to reinstall the gasket properly, and installing it carelessly damages the gasket. The result is that water leaks in and ruins the electronics. I use old dental tools when I reinstall the gasket.
2) There is a frequency-control knob on the back with settings for each pest you want to repel. Some units will not work at all frequencies, the frequencies are not the same unit-to-unit, and the output varies a lot with battery aging and ambient temperature. This is an analog design that would be much more stable if it were digital.
In spite of the problems, this is the best ultrasonic repeller that is consistently available, and I use several of them to keep the deer out of my gardens during the winter. In summer, I use ScareCrow repellers which squirt water at the deer, but in winter ScareCrows would freeze up.
