Mosquito bats are electric devices that run on batteries and batteries have a specific time limit for which they can be used after a charge. Once the batteries are discharged, you will need to recharge them to use the bat again. But, sometimes the battery is not simply discharged but unusable. There are two reasons behind a battery being unusable, either it is damaged or it has completed its lifespan. Whatever the case is when the battery is unusable, all you need to do is replace it with a new one to use your mosquito bat once again. Replacing the old battery of a mosquito bat with a new one is quite easy and you can do it yourself. We have prepared a step-by-step guide on how to change the mosquito bat battery for you. Let’s have a look at this guide in detail.
Steps to change the mosquito bat battery
Changing the battery of a mosquito bat is a very easy process. You will need some basic tools such as a screwdriver, a scissor (sharp enough to cut wire), a new rechargeable battery, and some wire taping.
Once you have all the required items with you, follow these steps below to replace the old battery with a new one:
- Use the screwdriver to open the mosquito bat.
- Use the scissor to cut the wire connecting the battery to the bat carefully. Do not cut the wire too close to the base. The leftover wire should be long enough to connect new battery wires to it.
- Take out the new rechargeable battery. Make sure that the make battery is compatible with your mosquito bat meaning, it has the same power as the old one. Also, mark the positive and negative wires correctly to connect the right wires later.
- Attach the wires of the new battery to the wires connected to the charging terminals of the bat. Make sure to connect the wires correctly i.e., the positive wire of the battery to the positive terminal of the bat and vice versa.
- Tape the point where the wires are connected to keep in place safe. Use the right taping meaning, the one that will properly stick to the wires. Also, make sure to tape both the wires i.e., positive and negative charge wires separately.
- Once you have taped the wire, place the battery back into its place on the bat properly.
- Close the mosquito bat properly with the help of the screwdriver.
- Once the bat is completely closed, plug the mosquito bat into charging and check if the charging light turns on or not. If the charging is working, charge the battery for some time.
- After you charge the bat for some time, it is good to use again.

- Do mosquito bats give shock?
Yes, mosquito bats can give shocks. Most mosquito bats have about 2500V DC to 3500V DC voltage discharge running through the nets. So, there are chances of electric shocks, if touched directly with hands.
- How many hours should we charge mosquito rackets?
You need to charge the mosquito rackets for about 2-3 hours to get fully charged. Also, make sure to charge your mosquito bat for about 4-5 hours before using it for the first time.
- Which battery is used in mosquito bats?
Mosquito bats usually have two types of batteries i.e., lithium-ion batteries and lead-acid batteries. Check the product details of the mosquito bat before buying it to be sure which one it uses.
- How much voltage is in a mosquito racket?
There are numerous mosquito rackets available in the market with different voltages in the nets. The voltage in mosquito bats varies from 2500V DC to 3500V DC.
- Can we use a Li-ion battery in a mosquito bat?

- How do I know if my electric fly swatter is working?
Your electric fly swatter is working if it creates a spark whenever its net comes in touch with a fly, mosquito, or any other flying insect. Also, when you press the power button of a well-working fly swatter/ mosquito bat, the power light turns on.
- How many amps are in an electric fly swatter?
Electric fly swatters generally use around 2 amps, which is enough to kill insects.
- Can a bug zapper hurt a human?
