Taser may be the most notorious name in the ECD market and that’s because they were the ones to pioneer this less lethal technology back in the 70’s. Taser offers Less Lethal Alternatives to deadly force for those who are in the private security and law enforcement fields, but now with the Taser C2, the ECD is finding a home with the everyday consumer. The Taser C2/Bolt is built smaller than the Taser M26C and is easy to use. The design is sleek and easily concealed in your pocket, handbag, or jacket. This unit is truly meant for the everyday consumer allowing for several customizing style options. This unit has a wide variety of color schemes available to those who wish to accessorize it like a cell phone. Like all Tasers available to civilians this model has a single shot projectile cartridge that fires two electric probes with nitrogen propulsion which is able to reach out and touch an assailant at 15 feet and penetrate up to two inches of cumulative clothing with an energy cycle of 30 seconds instead of 6 for the M26 and 10 for the X26. Once the cartridge has been spent the Taser C2 can act like a traditional touch stun gun or be quickly reloaded with a second cartridge. The device works off of a removable lithium rechargeable battery pack that allows for 50 uses from a full charge. The unit also features a low intensity light for use in low or no light areas and has a protective cover over it’s firing mechanism in order to minimize accidental discharge. While the official strength of this Taser device has not been released to the public, it is thought to be weaker than the M26 and X26 which use the 26 WATT charge and are models used by law enforcement and private security. Some have speculated that it’s charge is around 7-12 WATTs. Some models come with a built-in laser sight for better target acquisition. Taser devices are not legal in all states or cities, so check with your local law enforcement agency to make sure you are carrying within the law.
This unit’s MSRP is $379.99
