  • If You Need An iPhone Case That Can Stun Someone, Check This Out


    How often do you need to stun people with an iPhone case? Probably never. But the concept of creating a smartphone case that can double as a stun gun is pretty cool; dangerous, but cool. Introducing the Yellow Jacket stun gun case. The iPhone case can stream electricity from two electrodes at the top of the case. How much? 650,000 volts, to be exact.

    A case like this should obviously never be in the reach of children; irresponsible adults included. The electrical current emitted from the case is powerful enough to take down almost anyone temporarily, but it can also cause serious physical harm to a person. The case is great for self defense purposes, but were not going to just start recommending the case to everyone since it can also be used both incorrectly and illegally.

    The Yellow Jacket stun gun case comes with two safety features, including an electrode guard and a safety switch. Additionally, when the stun gun is not being used, the case doubles as an external battery that can charge your iPhone to keep it alive for up to 20 hours longer than the standard battery that is built into the iPhone allows. The case is definitely bulky and unpractical to have in your pocket, but the idea behind it protecting not only the iPhone, but the user as well is a good thought to consider for the obvious drawbacks.

    The case was designed because the designer was a victim of a home robbery and had no means of protecting himself since all of his self-defense mechanisms were out of reach while a gun was pointed at him. The case will bring a self defense mechanism together with a device that you carry almost all the time. Its pretty neat too. It costs $85 and works with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

      This is stupid, stun guns don't hurt, they don't knock you out, they don't stun you, they aren't like a police tazer which will actually cause you to lose control and collapse to the floor. Pointless case

      Because you can reserve your case right now for $85.



      After the early bird special, it WILL be $125.

Is this an extended battery as well (reminds me of the mophie juicepack). Definitely a cool idea regardless, as a would-be attacker isn't going to expect to be dropped by an iPhone.
      "accidental discharge"....yep, probably of the anus, or bladder if it goes off without warning :P

      I signed up for one. If it gets made, it will most likely be outlawed within a few months after they roll out.
      That means big resale $$$ for me. Cha-ching.

      It was a re-enactment of what happened to him. Maybe the robber who robbed him was actually black. It isn't really racist if that's what really happened.

      It's only you that make this distinction that are racist. If you weren't racist, it wouldn't matter who was holding the gun.

      Right. this case has accident written all over it. this would fry users rather than defend them.
