USB Charger is a nice feature. It does not use anything to shock the bugs. Instead it has a small cpu fan that sucks the bugs into the bottom portion. I was super skeptical, used it, opened the bottom and saw a lot of bugs. Would be really cool to see one of these a little larger and with solar power. For my deck this size is great.
My three sons were even more excited to try this than I was and we were not disappointed. The unit is nice and small. It is very convenient that it is USB charged. The unit charged quickly and ran for a long time. It was very effective - none of us had any bug bites. Very quiet machine (no zapping noises involved!). Great purchase.
I just received , and went to plug in , need an adapter. WHO knew. for that reason because now I had to purchase an adapter. Should have been informed. when purchasing
Gift for my mommy but I wanted to test it out since she'll be taking it with her to Africa. What I love about this is you don't need an outlet for it to work. Why does that make me happy? Because the part of Africa we are from experiences a lot of blackouts. Obviously, if the mosquitoes are out and you have no power, this will render this useless. But plug this into your laptop since it's using it's battery and you can still use this. It's quiet and the light seems like it's enough to attract those flying critters. Happy with the size too since it won't take up too much room in her luggage. Happy daughter!
I keep this by the back door to get rid of the bugs that sneak in.
