It is a small device that I wish I had many years ago. It protects you from the buzzing and biting of mosquitos without the use of harmful chemicals.
Factors to Consider When Shopping for a Mosquito Lamp?
Mosquito bites can get nasty – the bite is irritating, and if you scratch it, you might expose it to infections. That is not the only problem. If you are unlucky, you might contract one of the diseases transmitted by mosquitos. These diseases include Malaria, Dengue Fever, Zika virus, Yellow Fever, and West Nile Virus. Although most of these diseases are treatable, why expose your body? Again, if you happen to get sick while camping in the wild, you are in much more danger.
A mosquito light or mosquito zapper is ideal for anyone who lives in an area infested with mosquitos. If you live near major water sources, near a forest, or in a bushy area, you need this unit. Again, if you go out camping in the open, you need a mosquito zapper for a peaceful night. The UV light in these devices attracts not only mosquitos, but also other small insects such as fruit flies. If you have such in your house or camp area, you can get the insect zapper.
What is Mosquitron?
Mosquitron is a product from Hyperstech, a company known for its high-tech gadgets. While the product is relatively new in the market, it has had great success in trapping and killing bugs such as flies, moths, and mosquitos.
It works like a smaller version of conventional bug zappers and looks like them too. Out of the box, the unit packs a great looking cylindrical shape that would look great in any room or outdoor space. You can power the unit via USB or mains power, whichever is available. Its size, look, and mode of operation give it an advantage over other units currently on the market.
This mosquito trap kills mosquitos by dehydrating them. After use, you can remove the bottom tray that holds the dead mosquitos and dispose them off. Generally, the unit is easy to use. Once you connect the unit to a power source, most of the functions are automatic; no need to press buttons.
If you are looking for a simple solution to your mosquitos and bugs problem, the Mosquitron will definitely come to your rescue.
Features and Benefits
360 Degree Violent Technology
The 360-degree violent technology comes in handy when you are camping in a large filed, and you need the unit to protect all members of the family. If you are using the unit indoors, placing it at the center of the room allows it to attract insects from all sides, for maximum effectiveness.
When insects get to the opening at the top of the Mosquitron, a very powerful fan (with up to 1650 rotations per minute), sucks them in and pushes them to the bottom tray. From the tray, the insects are air-dried and dehydrated to death.
Compact and Portable
If you need a mosquito killer you can carry on your next trip, the Mosquitron might be a great choice. The unit stands at 7 inches with a diameter of about 5 inches. Even better, the insect tray at the bottom of the unit is detachable. This way, you can pack it in your hiking or camping backpack. It weighs even lighter than its size, seeing that the only thing inside the unit is a fan.
When using it in the house, moving it from one room to the next is easy. If you go out camping, you only need a single unit to protect your entire family – this further limits the number of mosquito killer you need to buy or bring to a camp.
Easy to Clean ABS Plastic
ABS plastic is a thermoplastic polymer used in making strong and sturdy plastic devices. Unlike the weak plastic that breaks on the first impact, ABS lasts through the years. The plastic is not only safe for you and your family, but also on the environment. ABS plastic gives the Mosquitron a long productive life and makes it easy to clean. The exterior of the unit wipes clean with ease. Better yet, the unit is waterproof, so, that you can use it outdoors.
Unlike other mosquito killers I have tested, Mosquitron disassembles and assembles with so much ease. To clean the tray, remove the bottom tray and wipe the mosquitos out. Then fix the tray back. Ensure that while you clean, the plug does not get wet – if it does, wipe it dry.
Mosquitron can attract insects from up to 40 meters away. As such, you do not need to be near the device to kill mosquitos that distract you. The extensive coverage comes in handy for those distracted by the violet light of the device. This wide coverage is also ideal when you are camping in a field, and you need to protect many people with one device.
Plug and Play
The minimalist design of the zapper makes it easy to use, but it also means that it lacks in more technological features, and you cannot regulate its range or its voltage, or control it from your smartphone. Nevertheless, it effectively kills mosquitos and other bugs.
Smart Light Sensor
Mosquitron works by attracting mosquitos, sucking them in, and killing them. To do that, the device draws power from any USB device to power the LED (Light Emitting Diodes) bulbs on the top cover of the unit. The LED bulbs emit blue ultraviolet wavelengths that attract mosquitos.
Once you plug in the device and switch it on, you activate the automatic smart light sensor. The sensor sits next to the power button and detects low light. In low light, the device automatically turns on. When the sun comes up, the device goes off. As long as the insect zapper remains connected to a power source, you are protected.
Mesh Prevents Mosquitos from Escaping
Once the bugs and mosquitos get into the box, they can never come out. They sit on a mesh and are pulled into the tray by the vortex created by the powerful fan. The design of the mesh is in such a way that it is easy for mosquitos to get through, but never come out. The tray at the bottom can hold hundreds of mosquitos, so, you do not have to empty the unit every day. If you are busy, you can leave it for a week or so.
No Radiation and No Chemicals
Although this mosquito lamp emits UV light, it does not emit radiation. The light is harmless, and you no longer have to worry about any effects from the light or the device.
Are you wondering why you shouldn’t just buy an inexpensive mosquito spray? That would save you a lot of money, but the problem with such a spray is that it contains chemicals. Even sprays marketed as natural still contain chemicals. The main chemical in these sprays is called DEET, and it is pretty harmful. If you are exposed to this chemical for a long time, you might develop respiratory health problems. The Mosquitron works as the electric bug zapper; it kills mosquitos without the use of chemicals.
Low Power Use with no Noise
Rated at 5 Volts, the mosquito light is energy efficient when used in or out of the house. As an indoor mosquito trap, it will not add any significant amount to your electricity bills. When using it outdoors, you can connect it to your mobile device, computer, or a power bank. Thanks to its low voltage, it will not drain your computer in a few hours.
When in operation, the fan produces only 30 decibels of noise – this is quieter than human whispers. Although it is as effective as electric zappers, it does not produce the zapping sound characteristic of these devices. What you hear from the device is the sound of the small fan. Granted, you can use the device in your bedroom or the children’s bedroom without worrying that it will wake them up.
A Device anyone can Use
Anyone can use Mosquitron. It is as easy to use as plugging it in and press the power button. The elderly and children can benefit from this unit, seeing it is not so technologically advanced to confuse them. Again, you do not have to worry about the risk of catching fire as long as the plug stays dry.
Better yet, the unit is almost maintenance-free. Maintenance involves removing the tray, dispose of the dead mosquitos, rinse the board with water, dry the board, and fix the tray back.
Price and Warranty
Although the product first hit the market towards the end of 2019, hundreds of thousands of units have sold already. It is easy to order, and delivery only takes a few days. Coupled with the many positive reviews, there are so many reasons to buy this product.
The cylindrical shape of this unit and the shiny appearance makes this unit look good at all times.
It looks great regardless of where you place it in your room. To most users, the blue light adds to the beauty of the unit and does not distract them.
Features I’d Have Loved to See
If you live in an urban center away from the forests and water sources, and you never go camping, you may never understand the hassle of fighting mosquitos and bugs. However, thousands of Mosquitron users have seen the advantages of having this small device. Most of the users had tried mosquito sprays, repellants, and so many other products before they stumbled on this product.
At first, these users had no hope that the unit would work as advertised, but they tried it anyway only for the unit to work beyond their expectations. According to most reviewers online, the Mosquitron works perfectly during summers when mosquitos breed in large numbers.
Users love compactness, energy efficiency, safety, quietness, and ease of use of the product. You can see some of their reviews below.

Mosquitron solves many problems for you. For starters, it kills mosquitos without the use of harmful chemicals, no radiation, and no smells. By killing the mosquitos, it allows you to enjoy your sleep at home or your camp away from home. Not only do you sleep comfortably, but you also stay safe from diseases such as Zika Virus, Malaria, Dengue Virus, Yellow Fever, and West Nile Virus. Better still, after the initial purchase, you do not have to spend money on refills that you would with repellants and sprays. Once in a while, you might buy replacement parts, but the unit can operate for years without the need for any replacement parts.
Unlike any other outdoor and indoor mosquito trap, the Mosquitron is highly energy efficient. Again, when you need to replace the mosquito trapping boards in other units, here you only need to run the board in the water, and it is as good as new.
I loved the ease of use of this unit, the automatic sensors, the affordability, and the effectiveness. With this product, I no longer have to bear with the smell and the effects of sprays.
