Stun Baton – 300,000 Volts
These Stun Batons are a favorite among security guards because of their power and extended reach. Simply touch an assailant and pull the trigger: three to five seconds will leave the assailant dazed and temporarily paralyzed.
There are metal strips along the sides that, when touched six inches from the tip, will also deliver a shock. This prevents an assailant from grabbing it and taking it away. Molded handgrip and attached wrist strap ensures a secure hold.
Many people have asked if this is a good choice for defending against attacking dogs. The feedback we get back has always been positive for defending against dogs. If you have an experience, send us an email. We'd love to hear it.
Batteries are installed by unscrewing the end cap at the base of the handle.

How do Stun Guns Work?
A stun gun is an electrical self-defense device that uses high voltage to stop an attacker. Touching a person with the prongs on the stun gun quickly immobilizes the attacker. However, because the amperage is very low, no serious or permanent injury is inflicted.
The stun is designed to key into the nervous system. It dumps its energy into the muscles at a high pulse frequency that makes the muscles work very rapidly, but not efficiently. This rapid work cycle depletes blood sugar by converting it to lactic acid all in just seconds. The resulting energy loss makes it difficult to move and function. At the same time, the tiny neurological impulses that travel throughout the body to direct muscle movement are interrupted. This causes disorientation and loss of balance and leaves the attacker in a passive and confused condition for several minutes. Still, there is no significant effect on the heart and other organs.
As a general rule, a one-half second contact can repel and startle the attacker, giving some pain and muscle contraction. One to two seconds can cause muscle spasms and a dazed mental state. Over three seconds can cause loss of balance and muscle control, mental confusion and disorientation. Realize that 3 seconds is quite a long time when in a physical struggle. Every person is different and will react differently to the effects of a stun gun. What may put one person down in 3 seconds could take 5 seconds on another person.
The electrical shock that emits from the unit will not pass from the person being stunned to the person doing the stunning. The effect is localized only in the affected area and does not pass through the body. Even if you or the attacker are wet or standing in water, you will not get shocked.
