This solar bug zapper eliminates insects without requiring proximity to a power outlet. Six UV bulbs turn on automatically at dusk (and turn off at dawn) and lure mosquitoes, flies, and other insects to eliminate them instantly with a 300-volt electric charge. The bug zapper can attract and kill insects within a 1/2-acre radius, providing chemical-free bug protection throughout an entire backyard. Five solar panels on top of the unit require only moderate sunlight to power the two included rechargeable C batteries, which provide up to eight hours of operation from an eight-hour charge. The bug zapper can be hung or set up on a flat surface and is made from weatherproof plastic and metal. 18" H x 8" Diam. (7 1/2 lbs.)

Solar Powered Bug Zapper
By Real Reviews
Great present for my Dad! He opened it up and hung it outside on the porch right away. It was charged up by the end of the day! Works great, glows purple and kills bugs. Does not harm butterflies, dragon flies or larger insects because it has a screening around the zapper part. Would be great for camping too!

I use the item on my deck.
from Sacramento CA
This Zapper really works. I'm most pleased with it's effectiveness. It hangs in my backyard next to the gazebo and only gets 3 to 4 hours of direct sunlight a day, so it never gets fully charging. Even with this limitation, it works about 4 hours into the night and has reduced overall bugs significantly. I've owned it for 3 weeks now. I clean it out every other day with a compressed air can and there are tons of dead bugs. It's nice to have it self contained with solar power (no electrical cords). Note: this unit does not have the sound of a regular electric zapper. It kills them quietly and all you see a burning light when they connect.
Monsoons, No Problem

My neighbor has a jungle of a yard behind us and the mosquitoes were quite unbearable. Though it has been non stop raining, I am in Florida, since my purchase there has been enough sunlight to charge the zapper to have it last from dusk to midnight. There is a significant decrease in the little vampires. I can't wait for it to be able to have a full charge.
Doesn't help for mosquitos
The concept, design is great! I love that its solar and non-toxic! Its well constructed, durable, gives of nice blue light, recharges well... kills some of those big flying bugs but doesn't attract mosquitos! They just laugh at it and fly around it! Even sitting right beside it on my patio, I was still getting bitten constantly. Tried it camping in the tent the first night when mosquitos had gotten in, still ended up having to swat them all night! Makes a nice - expensive - night light! Disappointed.

Good for the money.
from Patchogue, NY
Good buy for the money. Not as powerfull as the plug-in types, but it does zap small insects including mosquitoes, which was what I wanted from this unit. But,being Solar powered, it turns on at sunset which is kind of late for a lawn party and runs after everyone goes home.
from Stockbridge, Georgia
Switch did not work well on first one. Cleaning is a bit tricky.
from Florida Keys
Great Product - would highly recommend it.
FANTASTIC - I cah hear it working
from Chandler, AZ
I charged the batteries on my home battery charger, I do this to all my solar items I buy. I hung it from a wall in the yard and when it get dark you can hear the little critters visiting but they never leave! I have no complaints this works just as described,
