The Sunbeam SB980 Bug Zapper uses ultraviolet light to keep bugs away and zaps and kills bugs that fly towards the light. The unit can be hung or placed on a flat surface. The bug zapper is powered by a rechargeable battery, which can power the unit for up to ten hours. Once the battery dies, it needs to be recharged using the enclosed AC power adapter. The ultraviolet light bulb and rechargeable battery can not be replaced.
