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

+ Built in LED
+ Seems to work in *some* situations (maybe it only affects certain species?)
+ Two different modes
- 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.
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.
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.
