Well I am starting to believe that  shafri  was right , about suspecting the transformer.

I did many tests , re-solder anything , the best of it its just 200V DC output.

I have no idea , what transformer is it as specs ( probably an home made design) ,
so I just send a message to the seller .
Replacement , or refund, or what ever..

My new weapon are here since yesterday ...  I was extensively tested it .. and it worths every Euro Cent. ( 6 EUR shipped )  ;D

I had only to replace any screw on it with longer ones , and to make more permanent the secondary clip in the battery case , because it was flimsy ..  I had to use dual side tape, so to stay in place.
Thats what I enjoy with the Chinese makers , they always left some details to be cured by the customer. :P

Other than that it just works , it produces  lots of high voltage , with just two AA ..

Thumps up , I like it ...   ;D


This reminds me of a thread in another forum.

How does this tennis racket mosquito killer work? Does it use high voltage?

See for yourself, put your finger in between the metal mesh.

Yes, it uses high voltage, I got shocked. :'(

Lol, finding out yourself is the best way to learn, even if it's often painful. ;D

Yes it is ....  :D  

But It will take some time to arrive .... as it comes from Canada ..  
And the seller looks a bit " slow boat "  to me ..   "Zero feedback"

I once went camping in a little tent. Every morning we would wake up with mosquito bites.
One night we had spaghetti with concentrated tomato paste from these little cans.
Somehow one of these opened and not completely empty cans ended up in the tent as we discovered the next morning wondering why we where not bitten by mosquitoes that night.

Now we eat a lot of pasta's with tomato paste when we are camping.

It is not 100% fail safe but worth a try......



If you have a hammer, the whole looks like a nail.
Why spend money I don't have on things I don't need to impress people I don't like?

There are practical ways to keep mosquitoes away ,
but it works both ways .  ;D

The most known in Greece, are one small plate with cotton on it and lots of vinegar .
As long the cotton stays wet , you have nothing to worry about.  :D

I'm not sure what he designed works. He should show the voltage exists between the halves of the case.  The matrix of wires on the tennis racket are the 2 insulated poles of the high voltage circuit, they do not make a connection until you touch both wires.  Connecting it to the lock mechanism of the bag shorts the 2 leads.  If you connect one lead to the top of the bag, and another to the bottom, it still won't work because those bags have aluminum hinges, so the top and bottom case are electrically connected.
