    Hi,
    I want to make an electronic mosquito vaporiser , can anyone tell
    me how much voltage a electronic mosquito vaporiser requires and if you
    can please tell me where i can find the circuit. I have searched the
    net but all information i get is why people created mosquito repellent
    and which product is better. vaporiser or simple no liquid mosquito
    repellent.
    Please if u can help me i will be
    highly obliged.
    Thanks Vibha.

    Just grab yourself one of those cheap ($8 or so) bug zapper racquets
    out there and modify it for you use ?? They use two AA batteries
    and have 3 screens spaced 1/16 ? inch apart with the outer two being
    "ground" and the center "hot" -- small flies and mosquitoes make a
    wonderful rewarding "snap" when they get in between the screens
    (the mesh is maybe 1/4 inch). See what voltages they use there or
    modify it for you own use -- nothing better than a "snap" with a
    blue flash as the little critter goes up in smoke !!

  4. Such a satisfying sound! The older models, with a single layer
    grid of parallel wires, work a bit better.

    I think, though, that the OP was looking for a blivet for vaporizing
    mosquito repellant?

    I guess I read it too fast -- I thought he was looking for something
    to vaporize the mosquito (my preferred way of dealing with them).

  6. I like the harbor freight model. "Normal" price is $10, but they come
    on sale for $5 quite frequently. They use 2xD cells.
