How does a Taser work?

Tasers contain Compressed Nitrogen Gas. When the Taser is fired the gas shoots two  probes/darts at the attacker at a rate of 160 feet per second . The probes that attach to the attacker are connected to the Taser by a thin 15 foot wire. The probes can effectively attach themselves to clothing up to 2 inches thick meaning even during cold winter months a bundled up attacker will still feel the shock from a 50,000 volt electric pulse that is then delivered through the wires.

How long does a Taser last?

A Taser is set to distribute an electrical pulse for 30 seconds. Although it is not delivered in a continuous 30 second. The current is broken up in a time sequence creating a pulse that starts with 7 seconds of shock and is then followed by a 1.8 second break. This pulse feature is what prevents an attacker from gaining the muscle capacity to remove the probes. By allowing the assailants muscles to relax briefly and then starting the shock again it does not allow the attacker to focus through the pain.

The battery life on a Taser can be expected to  last for about 50 of these 30 second shock cycles. Another from Taser questions frequently asked is if the battery and cartridges are easily replaceable. The answer to that is yes as the lithium battery is easy to replace as are the wire probe cartridges, and both are easy to order on our website for affordable prices.

Taser vs. Stun Gun what's the difference?

This is usually the first question asked when someone has Taser questions. Because they both serve the same basic purpose people will talk about them interchangeable. Both stun guns and Tasers are personal electrical devices designed to shock an assailant in order to prevent or stop them from attacking. Although they work in different ways Tasers are a member of the stun gun family. The difference between them is how they introduce electrical current into an attacker. Stun guns have electrodes that stay firmly affixed to the body of the device. Therefore, in order to shock your attacker one must press the stun gun to the body or clothing of the attacker. Tasers on the other hand do not have affixed electrodes, instead the electrodes are attached to wires in a removable cartridge. To send a shock you must aim and shoot tethered electrodes from the Taser at your attacker. Once the electrodes are connected to the attacker then you can deliver a 30 second shock to stop the attack. The downside to this is that both prongs must attach to the attacker to work, but if the cartridge is removed or has been fired the Taser can also be used in direct contact just like a stun gun still giving you a chance to defend yourself.

What are side effects of being tased?

In regards to Taser questions asked one that causes some confusion since people make it to technical  is what are the effects of the Taser on the nervous system. To answer this you first need to know that Tasers are considered EMD (Electro Muscular Disruption) devices. The shock that is delivered to the central nervous system results in the continuous muscle spasms felt by the attacker. The muscle contractions are so debilitating that even an attacker with a high pain threshold, or one who is a strong willed individual will have their plans to do you harm incapacitated. In addition to the painful involuntary muscles failure, assailants can suffer a lack of coordination and dizziness from the shock. Some attackers have even been rendered unconscious as a result of being tased.

As mentioned before Tasers are considered a non-lethal tool for self defense. The low amplitude and timed distribution of the shocks decreases the chance of a fatality occurring when shocking someone. Many people wonder how long does it take for a person to recover from the effects of being shocked by a Taser. The effects of a Taser are not long term or permanent, but long enough for you to get away to a safe location in order to find help. The body starts to recover from the moment in time the shock cycle is over. Even though the person begins to recover once the shock is stopped it still takes them time to gather themselves to function as normal.
