The 2809B InsectaVac Aspirator offers a high-powered, lightweight
alternative for collecting insects and other small arthropods. The
design concept was provided by Ken Harmon a.k.a. “Ken the Bug Man” from
St. Cloud, FL. The aspirator uses the same collection and pickup tube
system as BioQuip’s other 2809 series aspirators with an improved
ergonomic powerbase. The 2809B drive unit has a permanent on-board
lithium battery and is charged with a Micro USB cable which is supplied
with the unit. It can be plugged into a computer, phone charging block,
or any other USB charging device. (A USB charging block is not
included.) The motor takes a few seconds to get up to full speed after
being turned on. Three collection vials, two pickup tubes, bent and
straight, are also included. Additional collection vials,
2809V are available
The pistol grip aspirator base unit is also compatible with our 2809A, 2809C and 2809D model aspirators and can be purchased separately as a replacement for use with the collecting vials and pickup tubes that you already have for those models. See items 2809BD and 2809BCD on our website.
When tested at one-minute intervals, the fully charged battery was able to power the 2809B InsectaVac for 72 minutes. (Individual results may vary.) The InsectaVac has enough suction to capture full size crickets.
The InsectaVac is also available without the onboard lithium ion battery in a corded model 2809BC.
When you are out in the field, the new 2809BB Back-up Battery provides that extra charge you need. It has a 10,000 milliamp hour capacity and can be charged using the convenient USB cord (included), or with the built-in solar panel. It will run the 2809BC for 2 hours on a full charge.
Dimensions: 13” L x 2 3/8” W x 5 ½” H; 330 x 60 x 140 mm (length includes pickup tube).
Weight: .5 lbs (.22 kg) when ready for use.
