Who Would Win a Fight, a Taser or a Stun Gun?

Posted by Rob on Monday, 11 August, 2008


How many volt stun gun should I buy?
I’ve seen them online from 80,000 volts to 2 million volts. Does the voltage really matter? What is the difference between lower and higher voltage?
Is it the amount time the attacker is disabled, or the amount of pain he will feel?
What is the advantage to buying higher voltage stun guns?
Are there any stun gun models that work better than others do?
Which is better rechargeable or standard battery powered stun guns?
What is the difference between Tasers and a traditional stun gun?
Are 80,000 volt stun guns better than 50,000 volt Tasers?


A common misconception is that the voltage of a stun gun is what stops an attacker, the higher the voltage the better. In actuality, it is not the voltage, but the amperage. From an electrical standpoint, amperage is the measurement of the amount of electrons moving in a circuit and the voltage is the measurement of how much force those electrons are under.

It is not the voltage that can harm an individual, it is the amperage. One amp is enough to kill a person, while our stun gun products typically run 5-11 milliamps. This range is enough to temporarily incapacitate someone without rendering any permanent damage.

Both Tasers and Stun Guns are low amperage devices so you are not actually electrocuted by them.


Stun Guns concentrate on an individual’s muscle group and transfers the energy stored in the device very quickly to the target and causes the muscles to do a great deal of work. Basically, the jolt from a stun gun causes muscles to twitch at a high rate of speed, which rapidly depletes the attacker’s blood sugar and causes a great amount of lactic acid to be built up in a rather short amount of time. Imagine an intense feeling of muscle failure you would get from an extremely strenuous and lengthy physical workout, then multiply it by three. The attacker is now unable to further produce energy to these muscles and their body is unable to function properly.

The tiny neurological impulses that provide direction and control to voluntary muscle movement are also impaired. An overwhelmed neuromuscular system causes an attacker to lose balance and collapse to the ground. It may be possible for an extremely determined attacker or drugged out assailant to partially overcome these effects, and contact must be maintained for several seconds to produce the desired result. Resistance to this would call for an additional period of contact to the partially dazed individual or deployment of another self defense mechanism, such as pepper spray.

Stun Guns are typically powered by one to four 9-volt batteries or two to three Lithium batteries. These batteries supply the various electrical components in the circuit with electricity, including multiple transformers, components that provide a voltage boost and reduce the amperage of the unit. As previously indicated, the actual effectiveness of a stun gun is dependent on the amperage of a particular model, the attacker’s body size, the attacker’s determination, and the amount of time you are able to hold the device to his body. The higher the voltage, the quicker the lactic acid may build up, but it is still a matter of amperage for effectiveness.

This high-voltage but low-amperage charge has what you would consider a lot of pressure, but not that much damaging power as far as intensity goes. A painful jolt will startle an attacker with a ½-second jolt. An approximately 1-2 second discharge should start to cause muscle spasms and a dazed effect on the attacker. An ideal 3-5 second zap should render the attacker disoriented and unbalanced, as well as loss of muscle control as he hits the ground.

Be advised, a stun gun is not intended to be quick ½-second tap weapon. The most effective deployment is when the stun gun is firmly pressed into a primary target such as an articulating hinge of the body (such as an armpit, shoulder socket, hip joint or abdomen) or to a secondary target of a larger muscle group such as the thigh. If you apply the stun device to an area of the body that can easily be pulled away, such as an outstretched arm, you lose your element of surprise and the effectiveness is greatly reduced.

We would suggest any of our 625,000 volt Stun Master Stun Guns to our 950,000 volt Cell Phone Stun Gun models, and any of the models in between. As far as bang for your buck goes, for under $80, these models offer quite an acceptable stopping power taking into account a good amperage and voltage ratings. We do offer much cheaper $20-40, lower powered models if cost is a concern, but realistically you want to pack some more power than a 80,000 to 300,000 volt stun gun. The most important concern would be size of the stun gun in comparison to the size of your hand, and the convenience of carrying or disguising the stun gun as a harmless cellular phone. In our opinion, while rechargeable stun guns seem more convenient, nothing beats the consistent power of a standard stun gun with regular Energizer batteries.


Taser technology works slightly different from that of stun guns, although the term taser and stun guns are often used interchangeably. The most notable difference between the Taser and Stun Guns is the distance required to deploy. While Stun Guns are contact weapons, a taser shoots out two prongs that attach to an attacker’s clothing or skin and deliver a shocking zap from 15-30 feet away. In a pinch, C2 Tasers work as a close quarters contact stun gun also.

In contrast to the muscular attack of stun guns, Tasers attack the human body’s electrical system. A 50,000 volt taser would override the normal electrical activity carrying signals to your brain, affecting the signals sent to muscles to allow basic mechanical function. Basically shorting out your electrical system, individuals hit with a Taser are unable to move, tense up and just freeze in place, typically after hitting the ground.

This unique instantaneous effect is why Tasers are more effective in quickly stopping an attacker and why law enforcement typically prefer Tasers over traditional stun guns. Anyone can be subdues or incapacitated by a Taser, even assailants hopped up on drugs. The drawback is that the effects of a taser are recovered from much quicker, which is both good and bad, depending on the situation.

When a Taser’s probes strike an attacker, the Advanced Taser M18L must continue to fire to keep an attacker at bay. A Taser C2 has an automatic 30-second firing sequence that continues to juice an assailant so you can set the device down and run to safety while the person remains incapacitated for the duration of the cycle.

If you have ever watched the demo videos from Taser or on YouTube, you will notice a stun gunned victim recovers slowly because their muscles are extremely fatigued, while a tased and confused victim recovers much quicker as they regain control of their electrical system.

We are not talking about the videos of drunk college kids zapping each other for ½ second on the arm and laughing about it. We are talking about the fewer videos of actual stun gun demonstrations where a stun gun actually deployed properly and deliberately for the recommended period of time. It is no wonder while some people question the effectiveness of these weapons after watching some drunken kids mess around in a dorm room.

Make no mistake about it, both Tasers and Stun Guns are both reliable and effective self defense weapons.

Everyone procrastinates. No big deal right?

I hate mowing the lawn. More often then not, the grass in my yard ends up taller then it should be by the time I get around to cutting it. Oh well, no one is going to die over it.

I’m sure you can think of several things you should have already done, but have yet to start. I’m sure you have a slew of excuses on why they haven’t been finished. No time, no money, no motivation, would rather watch TV, maybe someone else will do it for me…

Let’s go back to my yard for a minute.

No time – well that’s debatable, but I can usually find a spare hour if I really try.

No money – gas is pretty expensive these days, but my 2 1/2 gallon gas can in the garage lasts quite a few mowings, especially how often I get out there

No motivation – now we are getting closer.

Would rather watch TV – I can think of plenty of things I’d rather do than mow the lawn.

Maybe someone else will do it for me – the kids can’t grow up fast enough to take over this responsibility, but no such luck yet.

What about a more serious issue?

I get plenty of people visiting my website, some buy, some don’t. I understand people surfing for information, then taking some time to make up their mind. But I sure some people are taking an unusually long time to decide or ultimately end up deciding not to bother. Or saying “I’ll get one later”. No big deal right?

Well procrastinating about grass cutting and procrastinating about protecting the safety and well-being of yourself, your loved ones or your belongings is quite a different story.

Seriously, If not now, then when?

Coulda, shoulda, woulda is NOT what you want to be saying to yourself after hopefully surviving an incident that coulda, shoulda, woulda ended up differently if you bought some pepper spray, a stun gun, taser or any of our wide variety of self defense related products.

You never know when you, your spouse, your parents, or your child might draw the attention of an ill-intentioned creep. If that happens and you are not prepared, hopefully the loss is only material related. Stolen purse, stolen wallet. Could be prevented, but no one had to get beat up, raped or killed.

More serious, if the problem did escalate or the money was not the target, hopefully procrastination did not leave you high and dry.

Purchase your self-defense weapons of choice, and practice using them. Know how, when and why to use them. Arm yourself, arm your spouse, arm your kids away at college, or anyone else you care about if you feel they would procrastinate protecting themselves.

Cell phone stun guns are great, no one would notice the difference between it and a real cellular phone. Keychain pepper sprays are convenient and easy to use. You always have your keys on you, make it a habit to carry your keys by the keychain pepper spray canister and always have it ready to deploy if necessary.

I just had a pepper spray order the other day from a 4th degree martial arts black belt, well versed in several martial arts. He told me he believed even someone like himself should carry and equalizer or two.

Have options, know what to do, be aware, be safe and be protected.

You and your family are Worth Protection. Don’t procrastinate any longer.

Seriously, If not now, then when?

Yours in safety,

Wanna buy a Taser, Paris Hilton?

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 31 July, 2008

I was surfing some gadget review site today, not sure why, but I ended up skimming a new cell phone write-up. One of the lines that caught my attention was the line “…solid option compared to the (other cell phone) — but only if you live and die by instant messaging and you don’t mind being seen with Paris Hilton’s device of choice in public.”

I was thinking how can that be a bad thing? I’d love to be associated with some big time celeb using my products. I would have to name dropped to, I don’t want Paris Hilton running around town with one of my fashion pink C2 Tasers and have some other website’s sales go up, she’d have to say she got it at or at least so they can follow the main link in. That link is shorter to remember.

Hey Paris, Please buy a taser from me and tell or text all your friends where you got it!

Maybe I can get Billy Mays to do an infomercial, that would be cool. Sadly I just saw Billy on TV doing some silly insurance commercial. What gives there? No more laundry detergents, stain removers, or silly putty glue to endorse? I mean freaking insurance Billy?? I got some pepper spray or a cool cell phone stun gun that you would be perfect to endorse. I just don’t have the advertising budget right now for it.

Hey Billy, “I’d gladly pay you Tuesday for a infomercial today”?

You guys let me know, ok?

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,

Candy Apple Red HOT Cell Phone Stun Gun

Posted by Rob on Friday, 15 February, 2008

Rachel hated the subway. She grew up in a small town in
Washington State, so she enjoyed being outside at every
chance she could get.

As an attorney in the New York City, she often had to get to
work at an hour that most folks were still dreaming in their
beds. So she used the twelve-block walk from her apartment
to her office as a chance to spend some quiet time enjoying
her surroundings.

Still, she often felt a little nervous about walking those streets
alone. So she picked up a brand new 800,000 volt Red Cell
Phone Stun Gun
, the newest cell phone stun gun at
Worth Protection Security.

It looks just like a regular phone, complete with a holster. And
nobody’s going to question a well-dressed businessperson
walking down the street holding a stylish candy apple red cell

Rachel’s intuition paid off one Thursday morning, when a junkie
burst out from behind a dumpster and started screaming at her
to hand over her purse. As she put her hands in the air, she
used her thumb to disable the safety lock on the Red Cell
Phone Stun Gun

Rachel grabbed her purse with her other hand, tossing it past
the criminal. As he bent over to pick it up, she jabbed the
Red Cell Phone Stun Gun in the small of his back, shooting
800,000 volts of electricity through his body. She never even
had to take it out of its carrying case.

With her attacker curled up on the ground, Rachel pulled out
her real cell phone to call the police. Her colleagues always
wondered why she carried two cell phones. They usually
assumed that a powerful woman needed them both. Rachel
grinned as she realized they didn’t know just how much
power she really wielded.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to
you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection
could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth
Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your
personal well-being?

Yours in safety,

Rob Cook
