Self-defense is essential for any individual. Unfortunately, women are often targeted on dark nights when walking alone. When this happens, you may need to defend yourself from attackers who have a significant size and weight advantage. If you end up in this situation, the right tools can make all the difference. Harassment, assault, and threats of violence are a daily reality; women’s tasers can help you stay safe. Even if you don’t end up using the taser, carrying one can give you the peace of mind that you have added security at your side.
Below are a few quick tips on choosing the right women’s stun gun or TASER® energy device, including notes about what you should consider when selecting your self-defense weapon for women and some of the advantages of distinct types.

“The words TASER® and stun gun are often used interchangeably. Taser® is actually a brand of self-defense products.”
The Ultimate Guide to Womens TASER® Devices and Stun Guns
Know the Different Types
Not all energy weapons use the same design. For example, although you might use the terms TASER® (a trademark of Axon Enterprises, Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries) and stun gun interchangeably, they have distinct differences. A stun gun has two electrodes at the end of the device and should be held in hand, aimed towards the aggressor, and used at close range. They require physical contact between the stun weapon and the attacker.
TASER® energy devices, on the other hand, fire two barbed probes that stick to the target, connected to the weapon by wires that carry a charge. TASER® self-defense devices tend to require more training to use them effectively. If you miss your target with the deployed electrified barbs, you need to have a back-up form of self-defense security.
TASER® is actually a brand name of self-defense products. Much like the brand Kleenex® is used interchangeably with the word tissue; the word TASER® has become synonymous with all electrical self-defense products. Stun guns and TASER® energy weapons come in many different designs and with many different features, but it is most important to carry one that you will comfortably carry and confidently use should the time come..
How Strong Should Your Stun Device Be?
Ensure your stun gun or TASER® device is strong enough to stop an aggressor in a dangerous situation by making sure it remains fully charged at all times. After all, the self-defense weapon is useless if it isn’t strong enough to fend an attacker off.
We make sure that all of the products at Defense Divas® carry enough charge to stop an attacker of any size. Our stun guns for women don’t just look pretty; they also pack a punch! We recommend a minimum of 15,000-volt discharges to be effective at warding aggressors away.
Portability and Convenience are Crucial
You’ll want to ensure that you can keep your choice of TASER® device or stun gun on your person and that, when needed, it’s easily accessible. Some people find options like larger flashlight stun guns more reliable and easier to grip. However, slimmer models such as the Tiger Claw 85 Million Volt Stun Gun are also a good option for those that don’t want to add much bulk to their carry.
“Additional features such as a built in panic alarm, flashlight or wrist strap are beneficial when choosing the best stun gun for you.”
Other Features to Consider
Energy weapons for self-defense come with a combo of features as varied as the models, but all of them should include a safety switch to help prevent accidental discharges.
Additional features include things like panic alarms, battery charge indicators, led flashlights, keychain stun guns and more. It is important to consider your own needs for self-defense and which features will best help you to achieve them
