This stun gun has a built-in nickel-cadmium rechargeable battery and comes with an easy to use integrated charger. Simply plug the charger into the stun gun and then into an electrical outlet.

You need to touch an attacker with a stun gun for it to be effective. The best places are neck, shoulder, abdomen and groin.
A half second application can cause some pain. A one or two second dose will cause muscle spasms and confusion.
A 3 to 5 second application will cause the loss of balance and muscle control, confusion and disorientation.
Stun guns will go through a 1/2 inch of clothing.
There is no shock back to you even if the attacker is touching you.
