    It's useful if used responsibly. I always recommend a pepper spray though for the range.

    more like 50,000 volts, not 650,000....I think 650K would kill you.

    Tasers use 50,000

    I watched a demo of this case on iMore's site and that "case" looks gigantic. You can't tell it from the picture in this thread but the case looked huge in the iMore video. When I saw it, it made me think of the age old question, "Is that an iPhone stun gun in your pocket or are you just really happy to see me?"

    Edit: Here's a link to the article and video on iMore's site:

    ----------

    According to the company rep at CES, the 4/4s stun gun case is 650,000 volts and the 5/5s case is 950,000 volts. She also said it's non-lethal.

    Good idea if used responsibly. That much voltage will probably make you piss yourself though, thats nuts.

    It's better to learn jujitsu and pack on 650,000 volts stealthily.

    it's not the voltage that kills you, it's the amperage.

    Useful. Muggers will think twice before asking you to hand over the phone :p

    It's not the voltage that kills you, and it's not the amperage. It's the combination of the two.

    If you raise the voltage enough, the amount of current doesn't matter–you'll be dead.

    Yes it is a combination of both. To have current you must have voltage. It is specifically the operating current that kills you. You can hold 1 million volts if it has little current.

    Lethal current is about 15 - 20 milliamperes, there is no specific voltage to die.

    It is not built into the case but I prefer my .45ACP:eek:

    It's the current (amps). An infinite amount of volts with 0 amps is an open circuit. That's like a bird sitting on a high voltage power line.

    Lower the line to the ground and touch it and you close the circuit to ground current (amps) flows through you and you get hurt or worse.

    Both are important but low volts (by comparison) even in a house 120/240 can kill you given the right circumstances pretty easily.

    An iphone can't insulate 650kV. 25kV can arc 1 in in air.

    I like the way you think. ;)
