About Stun Guns
Many people still think that a stun device is a lethal self defense product but this is not the case.
The Low amps in a stun gun mostly causes a painful experience for attacker.
Sometimes a high voltage stun gun is advertised as a better option and for more penetrating power.
We answered the question “do stun guns go through clothes” in this post.
A stun gun has two probes and will send an electric shock from one to the other probe and if there is skin in between the electric current will go from the skin through the nerve system and shut down some parts of the body.
This can, depending on where someone is stunned, cause a temporarily muscle contraction and so much discomfort that the attacker most of the time will change his mind.
Why a high voltage stun gun can be better
A high voltage stun gun has an advantage over a lower voltage stun device.
The higher voltage will give more penetration force if you have to stun someone through his clothes.
That is the only advantage. Most companies use it as a sales pitch as if it has more stunning power.
This is not true. The power comes from the amps and not from the voltage although more voltage might give more inconvenience.
Voltage and amps of a stun gun
An electric device uses volts and amps.
Volts can basically not kill someone.
Have you ever been on a farm with an electric fence? This is just high volts and low amps.
Amps however, even as low as 1 amp, can kill someone.
A stun gun that is called a high powered stun gun will most of the time not have a lot of amps.
This is 3 or 4 thousands of one ampere. Way below the power to kill someone.
a 3 to 4 milliamps is already a high powered stun gun. In our store we have some of the highest voltage stun guns that also carry high amps.
How does a stun gun stop an attack?
for a stun gun to be effective you have to touch your attacker with it.
The best place is the skin but most stun guns and the high voltage series will go through clothes also.
The way a stun gun stops an attacker is through the voltage and the amps in the stun gun.
As soon as you activate the stun gun it will discharge its voltage and the low amps into your attacker.
This will cause a lot of pain and if you keep touching him it will cause a muscle contraction.
When you keep going it will eventually bring him down to the ground because he will loose his balance and orientation.
Here is my advice. Forget all manuals. Shock him as long as you can and then run. Call the cops or find help.
How does it feel to be stunned
I would not advice you to test it on yourself. There are many YouTube videos of people getting stunned available if you would like to watch that.
I have never been stunned but people told met that it feels like hitting your funny bone but then ten-thousand times worse.
Update: I did stun myself by accident. I charged my flashlight stun gun in the house and wanted to check the LED light of it after charging. I forgot however that I pushed the button to far and activated the stun function while I had my fingers on the probes on the front. Just stunned my finger tips and this already hurts like hell. Now I can imagine a little how it feels to be stunned in a more sensitive area.
Can you be stunned while stunning someone
This is a question we get a lot and the answer is a simple NO.
All the energy will stay in your attacker and even when you touch him while using a stun gun it will not flow into your body. Reason is in my opinion that the electric flow goes from one probe to the other probe and in this way it will not effect you when you touch you attacker.
Types of stun devices
There are many types of stun guns available and there is one for every situation.
I prefer to have a flashlight stun gun for in my car . The flashlight always comes in handy and makes the stun gun look less like a stun device since it is hidden in a normal usable LED flashlight. Most of them are rechargeable and come with charger for the car and one for in your house.
A woman might prefer a lipstick stun gun for in her purse. This will look like a normal lipstick but your attacker will find out that this is not the case.
An option that is becoming more popular is a high voltage cell phone stun gun. This just looks like a cell phone but it is a high powered stun gun. Many people walk, jog and shop with a cell phone in their hand. That makes this a perfect disguised stun device.
The ultimate protection can come from a taser product. But this is different type of stunning device and can not be compared to a stun gun although legally it is considered the same.
Cons of a stun gun
A stun gun even if it looks like a flashlight, cell phone or lipstick is only effective if you are close to your attacker.
That is the only disadvantage. You have to be close enough to touch him or her and preferably on bare skin.
Although firing a stun gun in the air for one or two seconds already can make any attacker think twice to continue with his action. They know this sound from the many law enforcement shows on TV.
A stun gun is only effective if properly charged or with fresh batteries. An empty stun gun will do no harm to anyone. Is this a con? Yes maybe but if you keep it charged and check this at least once a month there will be no problem.
What is the most powerful stun gun
This question we get a lot and also see it a lot on the internet. My opinion is that the most powerful stun gun is the one you learn to use in as many circumstances as possible. Teach your self to find and unlock it in every situation you can imagine. Practice and don’t take this lightly since it might safe your life maybe. Every weapon is only as good as you are able to use it. The most powerful stun gun is worthless unless you know how to use it in every situation. One other tip is to keep it charged!
Testing a stun gun
Test firing a stun gun is good a to test if its still charged enough.
Be aware that firing a stun gun in the air should only be done for one or two seconds.
A longer test might cause damage to the device and make it mail function.

Warning about legal use of stun guns

Rechargeable Stun Gun Flashlights
There are benefits in having a rechargeable stun gun flashlight.
One of the main benefits is that you will not have to buy any batteries anymore for a long time. But that is an obvious one of course
Although the name rechargeable sound like you never have to buy batteries anymore this is not entirely true.
Like we all know from our other devices like alarm clocks or even laptops a battery does not last for ever.
So, even in the rechargeable flashlight stun gun category we have to keep our eye on the lifespan of them.
What can make your battery last longer or shorter
There are different opinions about the flashlight stun gun charging time and when to charge any battery powered product.
Many mention to let the battery go almost dead all the way before charging but lately I read more that it is better not to let the charge go below 30% before charging any device and this will make the battery last longer.
Temperatures and especially low temperatures can drain a battery faster than you would like to see it happen and decrease their lifespan. This is reason enough to keep the one in your car out of direct sunlight if you can.
How to see if the battery goes bad
One easy way to find out if the battery is at the end of its life is when you have to charge it more often than you use to do.
This is a very good indication that it is time to buy a new rechargeable battery for your stun gun.
It is also a good indicator if the charging time is starting to get shorter.
An older battery that is going bad will appear to look charger faster but actually what it does it is not holding a charge and the cells are going bad.
With a high voltage flashlight stun gun combination you might need to charge it even longer than a lower voltage since the stun gun just needs more juice.
Best flashlight stun gun
The best buy is a stun-gun that comes with an LED light, a charger for home and one for in the car.
We have two top sellers that combine these two charging options.
Most of our other flashlight stun gun combinations come with chargers for home. And some of them have the prongs attached to them for easy charging and no need for
I have read that some people call this type of stun gun a rechargeable police flashlight with stun gun and most of the ones in our store will fit this description very well.
Find the one that fits your need and budget for a great way of protecting yourself with a non lethal self defense weapon in the form of a stun gun.
In my opinion a rechargeable stun gun with LED flashlight is one of the best non lethal self defense products to have on you or to keep in your car. Just be careful to read you local and state laws to make sure you are allowed to buy a stun gun.
A stun gun flashlight is a perfect combination.
We all need to have a LED flashlight in our car for emergencies. Why not turn it into a combo with a rechargeable stun gun and be protected at the same time.
This turns the LED flashlight stun gun into a perfect self defense product that can be used in two ways.
- Bright LED flashlight to blind your attacker

One option that we have available is a modern product ant this is a cell phone stun gun that comes with a 12 million volts and a built in flashlight like most modern cell phones have.

What is the best flashlight stun gun combination
We get a lot of questions what the best stun gun flashlight is. It is hard to give an answer on this question.
It depends on your specific situation and where you will use. All I can suggest is to buy the best quality you can afford. We have several that are made of hard plastic and several that are made of air craft aluminum in their housing. If you are a heavy user of a flashlight the air craft aluminum is maybe the best for you. If you only need it once in a while and not carry it around a lot the hard plastic that is a little cheaper is maybe your best combo.

Flashlight Stun Gun With Disable Pin
Some people wonder why it can be a good idea to have a flashlight stun gun that also comes with a disable pin.
It is pretty easy to explain why a flashlight stun gun itself is a great choice when it comes to a non lethal self defense product.
Flashlight is a bear necessity
A flashlight is something that we all should have in our house or car.
Or even in both. Have you ever looked for your flashlight in your car and just remembered that you used it at home and forgot to put it back in your car? I have done that several times.
Reason enough to have one in both places.
Why a flashlight stun gun with disable pin
I can hear you ask this question and the answer is simple.
In my opinion it is not a necessity, but an extra layer of protection and self defense.
Some people call this safety feature also a stun gun with safety pin. It is basically the same thing of course.
In a situation that you are forced to use your flashlight as a stun gun there is a slight possibility that your attacker is maybe not impressed with the sound that your high voltage stun gun makes and tries to get it from you.
In this situation it is good that there is a disable pin that will make it impossible for him or her to turn the tables and use it on you instead you using it in him.
What does the disable pin do?
In general a disable pin does what the name says. It disables the use of the stun option of the flashlight and even makes it unusable as a flashlight in most cases.
This leaves it completely useless in the hands of someone else or if the attacker is in possession of your stun gun.
It can also be a good idea if you have on at home and your children try to “play” with it while it is for example on the charger.
As you can read a flashlight stun gun with disable pin can have some benefits and give some extra safety.
Recommended models in our store
We have two of them in our store that we can recommend.
A stun gun with the extra feature of a disable pin can give you that extra layer of security and keep you safe from being stunned by your own stun gun.
