There are a lot of stun guns on the market that don't live up to the quality described on the box. Any cheap manufacturer can create a stun gun and say that it's extremely high quality because there isn't much regulation or testing on the devices yet.
This is the reason that there's a lot of material out there on Youtube that shows people shooting each other with stun guns that have minimal effects. You deserve to have a high-quality product that lives up to its description, so we've created a little guide on what to look for when you're purchasing a stun gun.
The most powerful stun gun could kill someone if they were in its way, so before you go out and buy it, you should understand how much power you need.
You want to be safe, but how much power do you want to have packed into your purse or bag? The strongest stun guns can pulse millions of volts out in an instant. The Guard Dog, one of the strongest stun guns on the market, shoots out 8,000,000 volts.
The Guard Dog has more than enough power to overload all of the electrical impulses in the human body. But do you really need that much power?
The more voltage you have, the quicker any attacker will be immobilized. Also, the more voltage you have, the more clothing and material that the shock can pass through and retain its power. Any amount of voltage above eight hundred thousand volts will create a bright light and a distinct crackling sound while it is waiting idle.
In most cases, the threat of being shocked by such power will turn any attacker away. That being said, if they do choose to continue, you should be able to stop most people with eight hundred thousand volts. It doesn't hurt to boost that up to around a million for good measure.
There are a lot of stun guns that come in a variety of designs. Most of the ones that are camouflaged in, say, a lipstick container or a look-alike of a cellphone are not quite as powerful as those that look like an actual stun gun.
It's really up to you, but if an attacker is in your presence, it won't matter if your stun gun looks like a lipstick tube. You're going to want something that's easy to access and powerful enough to stop anyone that might lay their hands on you.
You probably don't need the most powerful stun gun. Anything past one million volts will do the job you want it to. That being said, there are a lot of other areas in life that need to be protected as well.
If you're looking for alternative ways to improve your security at home and outside, we've got everything you need.
