GutReise Solar

Sophisticated Zapper

The GutReise company offers you a sophisticated device that is both environmentally and economically friendly. It's a one-of-a-kind product that uses a powerful 3000V grid to kill insects but doesn't necessarily require electricity.

It's designed with a 2200 mAh battery that can be charged by the solar panel on the top of the unit. The full charge takes about 5 hours and after that, the unit works continuously for up to 40 hours, leaving insects no chances to escape.

The advantage of this zapper is that it comes with a wall charger and solar panel and can be used both indoors and outdoors. If the weather is cloudy, you can charge it in the house using a power adapter. And when the weather permits, place it outside to let the solar power make its work. Dead insects will be collected around its base and you will be able to easily dispose of them using the included brush from the package.

About the only problem we have with this zapper is that its ultraviolet light comes on only when it's dark, making it less of a practical option for those who have a problem with flies and wasps in the daytime. That said, it works amazingly at night - be ready to clean dead midges, flies, and bugs first thing in the morning.

To sum up, despite the fact that this rechargeable bug zapper works only at night, it gets the job done amazingly well and may come in handy in a variety of situations. It's a good option to install in your backyard and take with you when going camping or hiking. With it, you won't be tied to power sockets and will be able to keep nasty midges, bugs, flies, and mosquitoes at bay.

ENKEEO 213434001

2-in-1 Camping Lantern

When it comes to camping, hiking, or tailgating in the wild where flies and mosquitoes are particularly aggressive, a zapper is a must. With that in mind, ENKEEO has come up with a 2-in-1 mosquito killer that not only keeps insects at bay but also serves as a lantern. And it does a great job at that, emitting bright ultraviolet light and offering up to 5 metres of mosquito-free zone around you.

Among other advantages of this mosquito killer, we can highlight a retractable hook, removable lampshade, and a durable plastic cage that protects you from touching the dangerous inner wiring. The IPX6 rating makes the lantern highly waterproof and allows you to clean it under running tap water.

The device comes with a built-in 2000mAh rechargeable battery that can deliver you 20 hours of runtime in the lantern-only mode or 15 hours with a zapper-only feature. That is to say, the lamp can work on High Light, Normal Light, or Low Light setting.

All in all, ENKEEO Camping Lantern is a highly versatile, portable device well suitable for all of your outdoor adventures. It can act both as a lighting source and as an insect killer in the wild. A must-have tool for avid campers, hikers, fishermen and other outdoor enthusiasts.

AUSHEN 77010ZHAK

Perfect Price/Quality Ratio

If you're looking for an outdoor mosquito zapper that would strike a perfect balance between a reasonable price and good functionality, consider the AUSHEN 77010ZHAK. Available at about £15, it's effective, safe to use, environment-friendly and energy-efficient, which makes it a reliable companion during any travel to both close and distant places.

Rated IP67, the unit is highly waterproof, so you don't need to worry about rainy days, and even if you accidentally drop it in a puddle, there won't be any impact since it can safely be soaked in the water for a short time. Plus, it is designed with a retractable hook that will allow you to securely hang it on tree branches without a fear that a strong gust of wind might somehow knock it down.

Like many other similar devices, the AUSHEN 77010ZHAK is charged via a USB cable, which means you can connect it to any USB-driven device, be it your computer, power bank, or a car charger.

It's worth mentioning that, compared to other cordless zappers, the AUSHEN 77010ZHAK takes quite a while to fully charge (approximately 3 hours), but the 2200 mAh battery, which provides brilliant illumination for up to 18 hours non-stop, easily makes up for this shortcoming. For extra convenience, there is a small indicator light next to the charging port - it will become red when you charge it and turn off once the battery is fully charged.

Besides the lantern and USB cable, the package includes a cleaning brush which simplifies the maintenance quite a lot. By the way, the lampshade is removable to make cleaning even easier.

To sum it all up, the AUSHEN 77010ZHAK is easily one of the most versatile zappers in its price range. It's long-lasting, easy to clean, and powerful enough to kill mosquitoes and provide you with bite-free nights.

The Executioner EX-001

Just Swing

With more than 300,000 sales all around the world, the Executioner™ Fly Swatter is one of the best selling bug zappers. Unlike the majority of other zappers on the market, this one looks and works like an ordinary tennis racket, though there's a noticeable "but". Instead of hitting tennis balls, you will need to hit insects. And you can be sure that you will be able to quickly zap them, since the racket uses an electric grill. 

The racket is powered by 2 AA batteries that are thoughtfully supplied by the manufacturer. Just insert them, press the button, and swing!

What differs the Executioner from other fly zapper rackets is its grid design. While most handheld zappers have 3-layer grids, the grid of this one has 1 layer only. No longer will you need to chase the bug between the protective layers or hit numerous times because of the dead outer layers. The Executioner overperforms them all. Its screen is carefully hand-soldered and has no overly big gaps. So, it'll give a hefty zap to all insect no matter how small or big they are.

It's worth noting that this bug zapper racket obviously can't repel bugs, but it does give you an opportunity to get them before they get you. It's suitable for home and office use, camping, hiking, barbecues and many other activities where flying insects bother you. Outdoor recreation has never been so fun!

Importantly, the lantern doesn't make any noise, so it won't disturb you when you sleep and can be safely used as a night light.

The zapper is very easy to install - you can hang it up on a string or tree branch as well as simply put it on the ground to use as a little garden torch. With this lamp, camping and spending time out in your garden will become much more pleasant, and you will have no need to worry about mosquito bites or ants in your food.
