Product overview

• Electronically charged grid to zap those flies!• Protective grilles to prevent shocks to fingers• Simple push-button operation• No sticky mess to clear up• Includes safety button• Requires 2 x AA batteries (purchased separately)• Keep out of the reach of children• Dimensions: 455(l) x 160(w) mm

The electronic swatter is charged by simply pushing and holding the button on the handle. Please note that this item provides best performance when used with standard 1.5V alkaline batteries as 1.2V rechargeable batteries do not provide a high enough voltage to enable the swatter to work correctly. Please note: This item is not a toy, please keep out of the reach of children. Due care and attention should be exercised if using this item in the presence of pets, the elderly or those fitted with a pacemaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can answer a couple of the queries posted by others. BATTERY LIFE: I have had our bug zappers for a few years now, and they're BOTH still using their original batteries! ACTIVATION BUTTON: The button does not require continual pressing during use, as the device remains "charged" for a while after initial pressing of the button. PERFORMANCE: "Mozzies" have a profound effect on me when they bite - I think I must be allergic to them! However, THEY are even MORE allergic to this zapper - terminally so! SUMMARY: This is one of the most practical yet "fun" items that I have ever bought. My only concern is that when I finally "fall off my perch" and meet my Maker, he, (or she) will turn out to be an enormous Fly who has a giant version of the same thing waiting just for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to get used to NOT swatting and just doing a 'Royal Wave' instead. Just smoothly come up behind the critters and it's toast (literally). This kills anything it touches! It produces a nice fat spark if you take a moistened cotton swap and touch the grid, so best not to attempt it with your fingers! Despite this, the way they have the grille set up, you'd have to be either incredibly maladroit, or really want to stick a body part in. You can do things like run it flat over your arm and it wont' attack you. You'll soon be developing nice little strategies to zap various members of the insect and arachnid community. Some go with quite a crack (must be a very 'juicy' body), but most simply stop moving the moment they hit. Occasionally one will 'fry' ;-) Get one. The can of fly spray has been unused for two years now. Very satisfying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with the swatter and it's definitely help us quickly cut down on some unwanted flying house guests. Unfortunately the zap doesn't always kill quickly, but stuns them quickly. Seems like the batteries really last quite a good long while, too. Definitely recommend if you have flies!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The flies see it coming! but it worked for some. Everytime I go to use this, the flies are jumping out of the way! And mine did not look like that one in the picture. My Electronic Fly Swatter is the same colours, however the design on the electrocutation part of the swatter is a sniper rifle barrel scope and not a slightly to the right circle (because its upside down). Also the one fly I did manage to catch with it was elctric-stuck onto the metal and could not be shaken loose. I had to eventually put the Electronic Fly Swatter into my cupboard as I could not bare the stare of those dead insect eyes. Would not buy again, but it was only £5 so I give it 3 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frying tonight Excellent and mess free way to zap flies and mozzies. Great fun to use and very satisfying when you get one mid flight especially if they go with a loud bang. I've even started to leave the door open so that I have more to zap. Best fiver I've spent in a long time.

Is there a way you've found to spare yourself from having to pick, or scrape up strewn, dead flies?

Asked by: David T
You could hoover them up to avoid having to bend down and scrape them up a lightweight Dyson would help: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/dyson-v6-animal-cordless-vacuum-a43tj Alternatively, if you would like to completely automate the clean up you could use a robot hoover in the link below. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/vileda-robot-vacuum-cleaner-a52ta

Are there any rechargable batteries that will work in this product? If not can you give any rough idea of how long ordinary batteries (eg. Duracell) would last. Also would it kill mosquitos & gnats?
Asked by: Jenny Allen
this will not work with rechargeable batteries,battery life will depend on how often it is used so we can not quote a time period it will kill all insects that come into contact with it.
