This unit is compact and can be carried in just about any purse or pocket, yet is just as powerful as all of the other models that law enforcement agencies use. The TASER® Pulse fires two darts connected to two insulated wires up to 15 feet to disable even the most aggressive assailants with 50,000 volts of electricity. It can also disable an assailant without a cartridge installed, as it can be used as a direct contact stun device. Simply press the unit against the assailant's body and pull the trigger. This will produce the same effect as when cartridges are fired.
