TASER International Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz., introduced the TASER X2 handheld electronic control device (ECD) today as a compact, cost-effective alternative to the X26.
The TASER X2 features a second shot for instant-miss recovery, dual lasers for improved accuracy, an enhanced power magazine enabling more than 500 firings, and a warning arc to help keep conflicts from escalating.
Additional features of the X2 include semi-automatic back-up shot capability for multiple targets, improved weather resistance, self-diagnosis features, and Trilogy Logs to record if the probes made human contact.
The TASER X2 is 31 percent smaller in size than the TASER X3 with its three-shot capability, according to the company.
The TASER X2, which will retail for less than $1,000, will be available for shipping by July 1.
