The Portable Killer Unit is a battery powered insect killer unit that slowly propels an odourless scent that is harmless to humans, but extremely effective against biting insects. The unit is supplied with batteries and a single cartridge which provides 48 hours (up to 6 nights) protection before it needs to be replaced.
Used in France, Sri Lanka and Bali in rural locations and works a treat, no bites at all. Great product

Purchased this because of a midge problem in the evenings, since my partner gets eaten alive! I'm alright, but she suffers. Have used it in the bedroom, and during the recent hot weather, left the window wide open all night. No problems, no bites! Only reason I knock off a half star is that it is impossible to tell how much more time the refill is good for, and finding out by bites is not good. We use it a week, then change it, and that seems to work fine.

A very good product that does the job perfectly. I actually use it in my office upstairs which gets very hot so I need the windows open and in the summer evenings there are a lot of mosquitos around but having this on certainly does the trick. Customer service was also very good when I received one that broke when I replaced the battery (the connector somehow disappeared) - I was rushed a replacement the next day. I've already recommended to other friends and might be buying more to take to friends abroad.

The Portable Insect Killer really does the job. I use two in my bivvy in France while fishing for a week and I change the refill every other day, more than probably required but I like to make sure as the mozzies do like to feast on me during the evening and night.... but no longer thanks to this product.

Purchased this item to take to Rio when attending the Olympics as there had been a lot of adverse publicity regarding mosquitos. It was delivered quickly following a lengthy and very helpful discussion with one of the Lifesystems people as to suitability. The product worked as it said on the box and I did not see any mosquitos in the room. Was it the item or were there no mosquitos? Anyway, I was pleased I bought it and will take it with me on future trips.

I get bit terribly so thought I'd give this a go. We've got a boat so obviously mosquitos love the water! Put it on an hour before bed. The mosquitos were dying on our galley worktop brilliant piece of kit. No smell or noise from the fan definitely recommend!

Bought this for going camping for 2 nights as we have had problems with mozzies in the past. we turned it on and it worked lovely. No problems with mozzies in the tent. we bought 2 but realised that one did the job for the size of the tent, a vango 6 berth, but we had the compartments all open like one big room. we will test it next time we go abroad as well in the hotel we will stay at, as I would imagine it would be great for that. it is easy to use and very compact.

Just been to Kielder forest and the midges were the worst I have seen in years. Left this in my tent porch and after 1/2 hour the tent was clear. Great piece of kit. Highly recommended.

Great product. Used it for a week on boiling-hot Crete. It worked perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone.

I brought this along with some of the other products as we were to be visiting Thailand, i carried this little device everywhere with me, restaurants, the poolside, although i'm not too sure how well it did work, i had a few bites but see other people walking about with loads so maybe it did work better than i thought.
