Zapper Unit with two 10-watt bulbs and a chain for hanging

- 28" power cord
- Approximately 5 lbs
- 12 month warranty, 30 day money back guarantee
- Removable tray (for cleaning purposes)
I remember have a bug zapper hanging in the yard at times as a kid. I be fascinated with the sound and spark of light it would make when the bug flew into the zapper. After using this one, there's still something strangely fascinating about it but it's a little bit different.
OPERATING THIS ZAPPER:
All you have to do is turn the button to the "on" position and sit or hang (I'll talk about that later) it somewhere of our choice.
+ Does not have the "Zap!" sound of that these devices had in year's past
+ Removable tray so you can dump out the insects that fall in the tray
- The tabs on the top of this unit are thin and pop out of the corners. This causes a potential safety hazard for if someone bumps it or a child tugs on it.
- Short power cord limits the locations you can use this (unless you use an extension cord)
- Not rated for outdoor use
- A bit larger than necessary
- Bulbs would last longer with use of LED bulbs
Functionally, this unit works and will get the job done for how many people will presumably opt to use this. However, I think there are several areas that could be significantly improved. First, the unit needs to have a better method to hang if that's going to be an option. As it is, this unit could have safety problems. Second, this is not for outdoor use. This much is in the title, so I won't fault the manufacturer. However, I do want to note that as a downside because there are some available for use outdoors (i.e. in the rain). Finally, using LED bulbs would be nice. My point in mentioning this is not to blast the product or discourage you from purchasing the product. My point is to allow you to make an educated decision about the product you are researching or buying. I hope you found this video and review helpful!
