Self-Defense Items – Top Three Most Powerful Stun Guns

Back in the good old days of eight years ago when I first got started in this business a powerful stun gun then was something close to 1,000,000 volts. I remember seeing stun guns in the 400,000 to 800,000 volt range. So a 1,000,000 volt for a stun gun was really powerful.

Self defense items like stun devices have come a long way since their inception back in the 1930’s. Back then a farmer was looking for a way to move his cattle along more efficiently. He invented a hand-held electrified device that gave a shock when applied to the cow’s rear end. The voltage back then was about 10,000 volts.

Today powerful stun guns are commonly in the 4,000,000 to 5,000,000 volt range. It is exceptional when one isn’t that strong.

Stun devices today are still hand-held self defense items that are nonlethal by nature. They send out a powerful electrical charge through two or more prongs on one end of the device. When the charge makes contact with an assailant it can immobilize him for anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes by short-circuiting his muscular system.

The charge causes the body to overwork very rapidly so it has no energy left. There is no long-lasting effect and the electrical charge cannot come back and shock you.

They average 90% effective. Maybe that’s what makes them the second most popular self defense item. Variations of the stun device called tasers operate a little differently but are the same basic idea. Tasers are so effective that they are used by over 12,000 law enforcement agencies throughout the country and seven foreign countries.

The most powerful of the stun devices are the Stun Master “Hot Shot”, the Guard Dog “elite” and the world’s smallest rechargeable, the “blackout”.

1. The Stun Master Hot Shot stun weapon is 4.5 million volts in a 3 inch long package. It sends out an intimidating arc and crackling sound when activated. It has a lifetime warranty and comes with a free nylon holster. It is battery-operated.

2. The Guard Dog Elite stun device is also 4.5 million volts but has a built-in re-charger and a bright LED flashlight. It is one of the least expensive of all stun guns at less than $30. It has six probes on the end so it has triple protection. It is only 4 inches tall and 2 inches wide-still very small.

3. The Streetwise Blackout is one of the most powerful stun devices at 5,000,000 volts and is also rechargeable with the wall plug-in feature. It is 3.25 inches tall 2 inches wide and has a safety switch to prevent accidental discharge. It has a disable pin which prevents use against you when worn properly.

Those are three of the most powerful stun guns.
