Live in a bad neighborhood? Always leaving work after dark? Feeling safe in your own home, at the office, or walking to your car on a dark night are very important. Sometimes pepper-spray is not enough to ward off attackers and something more durable is what you are looking for. In the market of nonlethal self defense products, the Stun Gun Flashlight can be a wise and life saving choice.
Stunguns always pack a punch but with the Guard Dog brand you are getting two features in one. The clever look of the device disguises the fact that it is a stun weapon, because it looks like a typical flashlight. The 3 super bright light emitting diodes (L.E.D.) are several times brighter than your average flashlight bulb making poor visibility not an issue additionally it can be used to hinder a would be attackers vision.
The loud crackle of this super charged stunner flashlight can set off a “do not mess with me sucker” message to deter attackers, burglars, and other criminals from proceeding with their dastardly plans, and should keep away humans and animals alike. But if this is not enough, when the stun function is activated this will surely do the trick. With an output voltage of 2.9 million volts, makes for an extremely intimidating weapon.
Through testing we have found that the Guard Dog brand stun flashlight device is very easy to use and will fit into the smallest of hands. Operation is cinch with one switch that operates the flashlight. The feature that I found most accommodating was the large red activation button above the flashlight button to activate the stun feature. For safety, a switch was placed on the bottom of the unit which controls power to the stun gun.
The Guard Dog Stun Gun Flashlight is also rechargeable; it is recommended that the internal batteries be charged for 8 to 10 hours prior to first use. The flashlight plugs into any 110 volt wall socket with the included charging plug making the recharge process a snap. It holds a charge for up to three months but it is recommended that if unused you should recharge it every two months.
Wind up flashlights are portable devices that are used for dealing with emergency situations such as power outrages and blackouts caused due to hurricanes, tornadoes, lightning, flooding, and blown out street transformers. They are designed for rough use and can withstand shocks and vibrations that may occur while using them in emergencies.
Wind up flashlights are considered better than rechargeable battery powered flashlights as they can be used as and when needed and do not depend on internal or external battery source. Some wind up flashlights have electric outlet ports that can be used for charging an AM/FM radio to keep users update on the latest civil and natural emergencies occurring in the local area that might affect power supply. It can also be used to charge mobile phones.
The basic mechanism that provides power to wind up flashlights is similar to an electric generator that converts mechanical or kinetic energy into electrical energy. In wind up flashlights, users just need to turn a lever provided on the side or back of the flashlight that winds up the metallic coil present in the flashlight. The coil is connected to a small electric generation unit that converts the mechanical energy of the wound up coil into electrical energy.
The number of times users have to rotate the lever depends on the type of generator and coil used inside the flashlight. On an average, wind up flashlights can be used for six to eight minutes on a single charge depending on the wattage of bulb used in the flashlight.
Wind up flashlights are the most environmentally friendly devices available, as they do not use batteries that eventually have to be dumped, leading to environmental pollution. The only drawback of wind up flashlights is that the metallic coil may wear out due to constant coiling and uncoiling process and may need replacement.
