BugzOff Electric Fly Swatter Racket - Product Review

I have always been fascinated by Bug Zappers, in fact I begged my husband for one since having one in our backyard many, many years ago, and since moving to the desert, anytime we turn on a light, bugs are inevitably attracted to the light. We have strong LED porch light that we keep on at night and whenever we attempt to enter our home at night, after being out, we have tons of flying creatures we have to duck and avoid just to make it inside our front door.

My dad has an electric bug zapper similar to this one and I really wanted to try it, especially now that summer is here and with all kinds of flying pests whenever you want to eat outside, I thought this might be fun. It takes 2 AA batteries in order to operate the zapper portion of it, and you simply press the red button on the side to activate the device.

Pros: Easy to use, and operate. Adding the batteries can be done without using a screwdriver, just simply put on the battery cover and insert the batteries.

Cons: The portion on my battery cover is extremely sharp and not well made. I can see cutting myself if I don't file it down a bit. Also when I attempted to push the button and swing the device, it sparks without hitting anything randomly. It took almost seven pops of the zapper to kill a simple wasp. I was a bit afraid to set it down on anything since I didn't want anyone to get zapped by it accidentally, since when I set it down the first time on a plastic tub, it zapped without having the button depressed. Not sure I would want this laying around for any child to touch by accident even if you don't depress the button.

Overall, I was NOT impressed by the quality of the product. It feels cheaply made considering other devices out there that do the same thing, and based on the issue I had with it discharging without depressing the button, I would not recommend using it around pets or children. I received the BugzOff Electric Fly Swatter Racket compliments of BugzOff and VIP Power Club for my honest opinion. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free coupon to try the product in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. Based on the device I received, I would only give this a 3 out of 5 stars in my opinion.
