Yellow Jack iPhone Case Can Be Used As A Stun Gun
If you live in a city where there is a lot of crime, you may want to find some ways to protect yourself. A lot of people carry around mace, but carrying that around can be inconvenient. Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Yellow Jacket has invented an iPhone case that also operates as a stun gun.
The stun gun iPhone case can shoot at 650K volts, which could definitely take down an attacker. The Yellow Jacket iPhone case can also add 20 hours of battery life to your device and you can pick from three different colors – black, white, and pink. Prices of the Yellow Jacket stun gun iPhone case start at $85 and you can buy a family pack of four for $380. You can buy the case at those prices if you contribute at least $1 to Yellow Jacket’s funding program.
Seth Froom and Sean Simone are the founders of Yellow Jacket and they are trying to raise $100,000. The two are building an Android version too. Make sure to check your state laws before buying one. Yellow Jacket has a list of states that prohibits the weapons. You are also at risk of accidentally being stunned when making a call though.
The Yellow Jacket website says:
“If used properly, the Yellow Jacket should not come in contact with any part of your body while on a phone call. Because stun guns have to essentially make contact with the skin in order to shock a human we designed the device to face up and away not down and in. The safety cover should also prevent unintentional shocks from occurring. There are always exceptions that we cannot account for. Please be mindful that this is not a traditional iPhone case!”
