Packaging was neatly done, Not even a single scratch. Machine itself looks nice, Not a cheap looking metal, It defiantly looks like made of good quality materials. Has a CPU fan(just like the one u have on laptop or desktop) its used to suck/pull the mosquitos inside chamber. Very quite, not heard at all unless you play close attention..even at nights.

Comes with 9 UV leds on 3×3 setup, Blue light looks nice during night, Not really that much that u can use as bed lamp, but decent enough to show the way. Well the function of LED as i read is to attract the flyes in room.

Device at Work:

Now the review.

Received the product. Turned on, Looks beautiful..everything is looking right. Waited desperately for an hour nothing comes by. Waited another two hours, nothing comes in. Few more hours of waiting now its close to 6hr wait and i cant see a single mosquito trying to go near that, Well they are few flying around my tv and does not go near this one sad huge disappointment.

Questions start coming up in mind if the device really works as described. Am i being scammed…etc etc.. All is good till i get a call form a friend who ordered along with me. A tip was shared between us. “Please turn off the light in room/make it dark and wait” I just did the same, Desperation is very high 900rs spent not even a single catch. Turned off light and tv, Waiting continues…

after couple of mins…read it like 30m or so…

Yahoo!!! there we go, I see 3 trapped. Happiness all over. I am blushing. Well its an achievement in itself. Yes i was not scammed. The device works, But wait a min, whats the point spending 900 and catching 3 mosquitos? that too creating a full setup of dark room and hours of waiting.. worth it ? particle ? i was catching mosquitos not fish to be happy about right ?


Now the real test. Kept it on all night. Woke up in morning, Guess what. I got close to 25+ on a single night. I never knew i had so many at home to begin with. �(Please note that my home has all windows/doors covered with mesh) These bugs looks like hidden and woke up when dark.


Next day the journey continue.. day2..30 more in bucket. Few flew away when i opened box sad to take pic. Next time keep the electric bat near by.

Tips:
Keep the device in dark room to make it function.
Dont try open the cover, Not all flies die instantly. They do take hours to pass away.
Have some patience. if something is not working, Try check if you are doing/using it right way.

I would wait and see how long this device can last and update. for now i don’t see it has anything that goes bad or creates problem, Even if it does, I see all parts are easily available and can be repaired ourselves.

Nice – well documented review. Good that the device made you happy at last.

I have one, using it sparingly.

Rightly said, long term reliability needs to be tested…

I am not sure about c02 emissions, This device has no gas chambers as i thought. I read this one emits co2 due to coating, I dont think that can anyway be enough to kill me(say humans)

CO2 is not harmful as CO but the quantum of release through this device is unknown. CO2 has its advantages too but at night in a closed room, I would want to know what Im breathing.

everything depends on hw much is the actual release…idnt think it will be significant…also nt a prob if good ventilation
eg— remebr its nt advisable to sleep during night under trees as they release CO2…so everything depend hw much is release..

Precisely. Im not taking chances, don’t need any extra amount of CO2 while Im sleeping.

I think we are a bit worried with simple things, we do use more chemicals to get rid of mosquitos then this, like those sprays repellents coils creams etc… I would not worry so much about this. But that’s me.

My whole point of buying this is to stop repellents which are more harmful.

That’s correct but just because one is bad, doesn’t mean that its ok for the other. A proper product should include all the relevant info. If the emissions are high, elders or children might suffer health issues.

Im not against the product, bought one myself but it comes with an advisory.

^ I received it today, its on test.. using shopclues hcl power bank with it lol ..dono ek sath test ho rahe hai cool ..

regarding the quality, well I would not say is of good quality. Its satisfactory, but yea not chose cheap chin3ze crap which even don;t have proper finishing.

Its no doubt over priced product because these LED are hardly of 50-100 rs, this fan is also of less than rs 100 and that thing which emits co2, i don’t have much idea but i doubt it will not be of over 100-200 INR…rest is casing of 100-150 at most..so overall, cost should not be more than 500..but technology..nearly double the price sad ..after all RnD have its price cool ..

For those complaining for C02, well its advisable to use it away from you or your face. You would not like to inhale co2…

In general, you should have your room to be well ventilated.

Edit: agar kisi ko chakkar aa jae use karte hue to bata dena, refund le lenge hum cool

For me it works because-
-I leave the room fully dark for some time (about 20-30 mins) with this as the only source of light in it. So the mosquitoes in the room get sucked into it.
-I use it in a air conditioned environment….so I close the doors and windows which does not allow the mosquitoes to come in once the ones inside the room have been captured.
-Its placed at the bed level height…so that the mosquitoes can see the light…..I’ve heard placing it on the floor is not that effective.
-throughout the night….wantrn is the only light in the room….I even close the AC display so the mosquitoes are not distracted by another light.

it worked for me, well almost..still few were lefty but those mosquito’s love bites were not seen again on my body cool ..

I kept it on floor in one corner where the fan air is not direct else mosquito won’t be able to stay near this machine and let machine do its work..

Regarding light, I keep 15w CFL on in attached store room so there is ample light in our room other than this machine’s light.

There is a attached toilet as well (which we don’t use) and we keep it door open for better ventilation.. I am using cooler and not AC so air exist should be there for it to work properly..

SO it works in this condition as well..

unfortunately, I haven’t seen mass mosquito killing machines like these in India


there are a few here that come a bit close but not sure how much they may end up costing (some interesting solar mosquito killers)

and one more costing 1400

An update after 10months of use. You don’t tend to clean it daily or weekly for that matter, machine is switched on for almost everyday and this is what I see after long clean, month probably. Who says this isn’t worth?

I am way too happy with this after seeing this results even after 10months

Sorry to wakeup an old thread.

After about 2years of humble service my device finally gave up on me, The fan was making noise since some days and finally lost the spinning speed. I guess that concludes on this little chaps life.. and questions about its reliability etc. It still has a ton of dead mosquito inside, which makes me believe the guy was fighting mosquito till the last breath :p super hero style wink

It has serviced me 24/7 for all 2years and finally its sad for me to let this machine die. I will do my best efforts to clean the fan as it has lot of dust or try replace the fan and see if i can bring my buddy back to life.
