The TASER C2 is the next generation, personal protection device from Taser International. The TASER C2 is a modified TASER product that is smooth, ergonomic, and consumer designed self defense product. The TASER C2 comes in a variety of colors for men & women; Black Pearl, Titanium Silver, Electric Blue, and Metallic Pink. It's actually small enough to put in a purse, or use the small holster that comes with it and attach it to your belt.
TASER International has been making self defense products for 16 years, and provides TASER devices for personal, military, and police applications. It uses the same technology as their M18 Tasers, in that the TASER C2 is a gun of sorts that uses a disposable, nitrogen propelled charge that shoots two metal darts that are attached to 15 feet of electrified wire.
When the darts make contact with their target, the device then shoots 50,000 volts of electricity through the wires into the darts for a 30 second cycle. The TASER works similar to a stun gun, because the voltage delivered similarly affects the sensory and motor functions of the nervous system.
The darts can penetrate up to two inches of clothing. The TASER C2 uses a slightly smaller version of the cartridges, so you can not interchange them between the TASER C2 and the Advanced TASER M18, the standard TASER®.
The effects on humans are dramatic; just watch COPS on T.V. and you will see that they can take down the largest man in one or two seconds. While the TASER C2 only sends 50,000 volts, ½ the voltage of our lowest volt stun guns, the 100,000 Volt Stun Master, it's the length of time that causes the effects.
One interesting feature is that it requires a background check before you can use it! The TASER C2 is shipped in an inactive state, and you have to go online to run the background check. Don't worry as it is not a very complicated process. If approved, they issue you a code to unlock the TASER C2. Also, every consumer TASER cartridge has some confetti in it that is coded to you, so if the TASER is used in an offensive or criminal situation, they will track you.
The TASER C2 has an easy to use safety, and is comfortably held in your hand. When the safety is on, it will not accidentally discharge. The TASER C2 offers the option of a built in laser, which I highly suggest you get, because if you don't aim the device properly, one or none of the darts will hit the attacker, and it' won't do anything. With the laser, you know exactly where the darts will go. In case you miss, you can still use the device like a stun gun; just put it up to the attacker's torso or hips, and pull the trigger. The gun will still transfer the voltage through the gun, into the attacker's body.
The TASER C2 operates on a 30 second cycle when you pull the trigger using something called Shaped Pulse Technology. This is a sophisticated pulse wave that initially uses a high voltage leading edge to penetrate barriers such as clothing around the body followed by a series of lower voltage pulses that cause the neuromuscular system to become incapacitated. What this means is the punk you shoot will turn into a quivering pile of Jell-O. He will not be able to get up or move for a while.
When you pull the trigger, the TASER C2 generates a charge of 17 pulses of 50,000 volts per second (PPS) for 5 seconds, 12 PPS for 15 seconds, a ½ second break, 17 PPS for 1.5 seconds, 8 PPS for remaining 8 seconds. Your attacker will go down for the count, and you will have plenty of time to run away, while it is going through the cycle. The Taser C2 cartridges have a 10 year shelf life, and you can shoot up to 50 cartridges before you have to replace the lithium batteries.
The TASER C2 & M18 devices can stop threats from up to 15 ft. (4.5 m). Or, if you miss, or there is more than one attacker, you can use the TASER device as a contact stun gun - a powerful backup capability. When used in the field by law enforcement against dangerous suspects, the Taser technology offers the lowest injury rates of any force option.
However, using the TASER device is not risk free and may cause injuries, primarily from falls or physical exertion. If you forget to turn off the safety, your attacker could overtake you and use it on you. The use of any TASER devices should not be undertaken lightly, however, when your life is in danger, you must Defend Thyself! Pick up your TASER C2 from our online store.
