Mosquito-Repellent Trash / trash can, environmental

Mosquito-Repellent Trash
Mosquito-Repellent Trash

As one of daily items, the trash can is easily for breeding flies, especially in summer. This product
is based on solving such problem. The light around the edge of the trash can is for attracting and
killing bugs. The 4 volts rechargeable lithium battery plays the role in running such light. While it
is working, the direct current is up to 1850 volts (the current is less than 10 mA, which is not
threatening to human bodies). It is enough to kill flies by strong force between the electrostatic
field. Apart from that, the handle, as you can see, could hold plastic bags.
