The traditional Tasers and stun guns were used by law enforcement and military authorities. Today, these traditional non-lethal weapons have improved in designs and are being sold to consumers for personal protection.
  • The large and intimidating Tasers and stun guns have progressed to more compacted models with the miniaturization of electrical components, making them easier to conceal.
  • These compact models are mostly rechargeable with some using lithium batteries and alkaline batters. The rechargeable weapons are convenient in that they do not require batteries to be purchased or replaced. The advantage of battery operated Tasers or stun guns is that they can be used when there is no opportunity to recharge, and fresh batteries will last longer than the charge of a rechargeable weapon.
