The origins of stun guns go back to the 1930's when a normal size cattle prod was a foot long and weighed over 2 pounds. It only conducted about 10,000 V. But back then it was the strongest you could get from the batteries that were inside it.
In the last 80 years or so cattle prods have made a tremendous change. Today they have morphed into the second most popular self-defense item in the world second only to defensive sprays.
Stun devices have become smaller and more powerful because batteries are smaller and more powerful. But don't be confused by the small size. There are many stun guns today that are half the size of their predecessors even five years ago with two times the power.
Stun devices are hand-held products that conduct an electrical charge used for self defense. They can put an assailant on his rear end for 5 to 10 minutes. Touching an assailant with the prongs on the end causes mental confusion and a temporary loss of balance. But 3 to 5 second application depletes the body of all blood sugars by causing the muscles to over work very rapidly. With no blood sugars left he has no energy.
There has to be a reason why stun guns are so popular today. Maybe it's because they are cost effective are easy to carry and because they are so small, easy to conceal. Or maybe there is another reason-they work and have a long track record of success that proves it. There are several models of stun guns that are less than 4 inches in length-small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. Several examples are Mini Stun Gun is the Runt stun gun at 3.5 inches in length; the Hotshot at 2.25 inches in length (both are 4.5 million volts) and The Enforcer , which comes in at a huge 4.5 inches long and is 5.0million volts.
The Enforcer and the Runt stun weapons both have a rechargeable capability so there is no need to buy batteries.
One of the smallest is the stun pen at 1.2 million volts. It is 1 inch in diameter and 5 inches long and can easily be mistaken for a ball point pen. So don't be mistaken by the size.
A mini stun gun of 3.5 to 4.5 inches packs a punch 4 to 5,000,000 volts can be your best friend.
When it comes to size in stun devices, small can be better.
