Tasers, more "shocking" then manufacture claims

Some tested Tasers fire stronger current than company says

Some Tasers deliver a higher level of electricity than the manufacturer promises, reveals a series of tests on 41 stun guns that was commissioned by CBC News and Radio-Canada.

Tasers tested by U.S.-based lab National Technical Systems as part of a CBC/Radio-Canada investigation into the devices."

The abnormal X26 model Tasers were manufactured before 2005, prompting some scientists to suggest police should stop using any older versions of the stun guns until they can be tested.

Of the 41 Tasers tested, four delivered significantly more current than Taser International says is possible.

In some cases, the current was up to 50 per cent stronger than specified on the devices.

Of course Taser International says:

TASER INTERNATIONAL OFFICIAL STATEMENT:

In other words, please focus on law enforcement injury reduction and never mind all those dead bodies piling up???
Oh and btw, don't confuse people with information they don't need on our product. Ignorance is bliss!
( I am noting the condescending attitude of taser international in their statement)

  1. Ha, just ask any farm boy after he's pissed on an electric fence if ignorance is bliss.

  2. I wouldn't think in that case ignorance would be bliss, yikes!

    But, Taser international, certainly doesn't want anyone to know that their tasers do not work as they say they do.

  3. A Taser is a pretty simple device. I find this to be another comical error in a seemingly endless supply of comical errors.

    If the current increased with the resistance then its possible for the current to increase with resistance. No laws of physics are being broken.
