Doesn't seem to work – Digital Mosquito Repeller Keychain Reviews

posted by tweakerxp on 07/19/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
+ Built in LED
+ Seems to work in *some* situations (maybe it only affects certain species?)
+ Two different modes
Cons:
- Poor Build Quality. Cheap plastic scratches easily.
- LED is RED so it's not the best for seeing in the dark.
- Doesn't seem to work on most mosquitoes.
- Noise is absolutely horrendous and can become unbearable.
Other:
I have tested this device on several occasions. I was only able to make it have some effect at a park when there were lots of mosquitoes flying around. They seemed to back off a bit and didn't land on us when the unit was on. Other occasions, I've had mosquitoes come and land on us and even right up close to the repeller.
Bottomline:
Use some citronella patches instead. At least those don't make annoying noises. Although this device did appear to work once, it may have just been a coincidence.
