The stun baton flashlight offers you the best of 3 worlds. First off, you a have durable baton design with a plastic 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. The shock can be delivered in one of two spots, the top prongs or the side metal strips to prevent anyone from grabbing the baton. 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.
