  Watch your money FLY away...

This item is a load of ZAP!
Button gets pushed in after about 3 presses and then the item is broke!
Youre paying your fiver for the plastic! It also rather too big I think!

  What a disappointment

This product was a sheer waste of money. It never worked. It wasn't worth the postage to send it back. My husband (business consultant) now uses it as a visual aid in presentations, to demonstrate the idea of a product which sounds like a brilliant idea - but disappoints.

  A power Fly Zapper.. When it works.

For the fortunate few who got these and they worked, Its a brilliant product. For myself i am on my 2nd Fly Zapper after the first turning up and not working at all.

But the second one works and is very powerful and zaps the hell outta those annoying buzzing flys.

Pressing the button is a delicate act indeed so just be careful when doing this or as noticed in other reviews also it seems to get pressed in too far and will not come back out.

For the one that doesnt work 1/5
For the one that DOES work 4/5 losing a star for poor build quality.

  Save yourself the £4 and buy something else.

When this item arrived I purchased batteries and the item did not work. After taking the handle apart I found that the wires inside had been cut when the item was put together and there was no way to fix it without buying more wire and a soldering iron. These items are so badly made that it would be more worthwhile to go out and buy 4 lottery scratchcards. Save yourself the money and don't buy it.

  Waste of money

| | See all Neilk63's reviews (1)

Purchased these despite some poor reviews about the item ...ok it's a fiver so should you really be complaining ??? Well yes as you might as well set fire to a fiver and throw it at the flies ...I am one of the unlucky ones mine didnt work from the day it arrived , the button was broken , as to performance I cant comment for obvious reason's , however it is very poorly put together and I would assume have a lifespan of days ...be warned it really is as rubbish as people say.

item broke after first use ok so it worked very well on that 1 fly but still it then blow up.
was also shocked at the size of item its like a tennis racket not the best tool for fly zapping.

  great fun

also great for when somebody has fallen asleep when drunk. Just sneak up and ping their nose and retire to a very safe distance.

The one you get looks different from the one in the picture and is a lot bigger. It needs 2x D batteries which are not included.

I tested this on one fly that was buzzing around my house, and it was completely annihilated. When the racket connected there was a bright spark and a sharp bang. This thing is a lot more powerful than you will expect.
