Yes. We feel that the most important safety feature a stun gun can have is the safety/disable pin. When used properly, they help prevent the stun gun from being used against the person carrying it. After all, what good is self defense when it can be used against you.
Flashlights on stun guns compromise your safety for two very important reasons. The first problem is that the flashlight drains power from the battery which is also used for the stun gun. You could potentially find yourself in a situation where there is not enough power for the stun gun to be effective when you really need it. The second problem is that when you are using the flashlight, you are not prepared to use the stun gun. There is at least one step you have to make in order to make the stun gun ready to use. A stun gun or any self defense tool will do you no good unless it is ready to use.
Self defense items are only effective if they are ready to be used, so it doesn’t really matter what they look like. Our main problem with them is that other people, especially young children, confusing them with what they actually are and accidentally shocking themselves. In addition, devices that are very small, such as “lipstick” models, are not able to provide enough power to be effective.
We only use 7.2 Volt Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. Not only do Ni-MH batteries have almost twice the capacity of the Ni-Cad rechargeable batteries but they are also safer for the environment!
When most people consider the power of a stun gun, they only think voltage. The truth is the amperage that a stun gun produces is just as, if not more important than voltage. Amperage is in fact, the real power behind the stun gun. Where most stun guns range between 1-2 milliamps, our stun guns product approximately 4.5 milliamps.
No. Bright colors attract attention to your stun gun, which makes them harder to conceal. Also, the bright colors will very quickly show a buildup from the oils and dirt from your hands. This causes the unit to get a grimmey coating that can’t be cleaned. Yuck!
