Forget the Mace. The Yellow Jacket iPhone stun gun case claims to not only protect your phone, but your life.
This smart taser comes with a 650,000-volt stun gun and an external battery that can charge the smart phone for up to 20 hours, according to the Yellow Jacket website.
If you’re afraid of accidentally setting it off, you’ll be relieved to know that the Yellow Jacket includes a safety switch and safety cover for the electrodes.
Yellow Jacket co-founder Seth Froome invented the stun-gun case after he was robbed, he says in a promotional video. While Mr. Froome owned firearms and a fake-cellphone stun gun in his home, they were out of reach and could not protect him. So he thought to apply the stun gun to his real cellphone.
“Why not take the most common device a person carries, their smart phone, and combine it with a protective element,” he says in the video.
The Yellow Jacket website is accepting pre-orders for the stun-gun case, which costs $139.99. It is available for some Android devices, as well as the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5.
