TASER Introduces Personal Defense Stun Flashlight

TASER International, Inc. has introduced the StrikeLight LED flashlight, a personal defense flashlight with an integrated stun gun.

The StrikeLight is designed for "convenience and protection in everyday situations," according to TASER.

"We designed the StrikeLight flashlight around the needs of everyday people looking to feel safer, or as a gift to protect the ones they love," said Rick Smith, TASER's CEO. "At TASER, we recognize the importance of feeling safe no matter what you're doing."

The flashlight's stun gun deploys a loud, intimidating electric stun arc as an initial deterrent to threats. Unlike the X26 and other law enforcement products, the StrikeLight doesn't fire projectiles to cause neuro-muscular incapacitation. It's stun capacity can be used to repel close-range threats.

The stun gun is paired with an 80-lumen flashlight that reaches 55 feet with a 70-degree beam angle, according to the company.

The StrikeLight includes a replaceable and rechargeable battery rated to provide five hours of continuous use per charge. The charge supports up to 100 five-second discharges. It retails for $129.99 and includes a wall charger.

1. Do you need some LEO and current TASER instructor for trial and evaluation? :-)

2. Is it LED?

3. Where does one obtain one?

@Andy Yes, it's LED. Thanks, I've just updated the story.

80 lumens? Count me out.

Dark conditions are a genuine hazard, and nearly any working situation benefits from having good lighting all around. And in cases of emergencies such as power loss and damage, the best solution is to bring your light with you, in the form of portable emergency flashlights or torches.

What a giant leap backwards for TASER!!!

Instead of creating their version of crap that can be found at flea markets, they should spend their time redesigning the C2 to be more user friendly, and there by lessening the chances of an AD by redesigning the trigger and safety switches.

Is it going to be available to "regular" public? Because it's a "taser" do you need some sort of permit to have/use it? When we it become available for public purchase?

80 lumens is just not enough. Raise the price if necessary. But get it up to at least 250 lumens.

You can purchese it from http://www.selfdefensesurveillance.com/
The owner of the company also made a video.

80 lumens is so 20th-century. It does have a DNA-catcher like Uzi pen, but with all stun gun/direct contact weapons, the scumbag has to be on you -- too close. Might be ok as a third backup. But maybe if Monadnock made one too, with decent lumens, we'd have a 3 in 1.

I have at my house decent stun flashlights that provide much more light output than 80 lumens and last 2 and 3 times longer on a charge. Not only that. The cost of my devices range between $20-$40. Come on people. All I see with this one is your buying "the name". Now don't get me wrong the shape and look of the strikelight is quite nice, but I just can't justify spending more than $50 for one.

Michael T @ 4/21/2014 10:34 PM

I was weary about it being only 80 lumen. But, it's pretty damn bright still. I usually carry a 250 lumen flashlight and the 80 isn't that bad. I can clear vehicles and houses with it. Very interesting product. Works great so far
