Can I use any type of battery in the trap?

Batteries: Four “AA”’ cells are required; PLEASE ONLY USE “Duracell Ultra”, Duracell Copper Top or “Energizer MAX” alkaline, or any of the Lithium batteries. If the batteries are not the correct quality or voltage, you will have problems.

Never USE: Standard carbon zinc batteries, super market brand batteries. Heavy Duty batteries’, Super heavy duty batteries, Extra heavy duty batteries or rechargeable batteries such as NiCad or NMH batteries they are not suitable for use in a Rat Zapper.

IMPORTANT: Take great care to install the batteries so that the + end is at the opposite end to the spring. Batteries that are installed back to front will damage the unit.

Never insert the batteries while the power switch is in the ON position, if you have done so in error, turn off the switch, remove the batteries and wait for at least 30 seconds before correctly installing the batteries.
