A TASER device has 1/10 the peak current of a strong static shock even as it discharges 50,000 volts into your attacker.
General TASER Questions
Are TASER devices rechargeable?
Only the TASER StrikeLight is rechargeable. However, the batteries on all other TASERs are user replaceable and provide enough energy for many uses.
Why should I buy a TASER over a Stun Gun?
All other stun guns only induce pain and do not incapacitate muscle or knock down an attacker. Only a TASER weapon is equipped with neuromuscular incapacitation which will immobilize an attacker
Do the probes need to hit a specific area to be effective?
TASERs will work anywhere on the body. As long as current is flowing through muscles, the attacker will lose control of said muscles.
