The stun baton flashlight offers you the best of 3 worlds. First off, you a have durable baton design with a metal coating that provides you with a firm grip, great for striking. Next, you have a stun gun feature that delivers 12,000,000 volts (4.5 milliamps) of electricity to any assailant. To activate the stun gun portion the safety switch must be slid to the top position and the on/off finger grip switch pressed. The double switch feature helps prevent any accidental discharges. The third and final function is the bright LED flashlight. Power is provided by an internal rechargeable battery that recharges in any standard wall outlet with provided AC adapter plug.
