A stun baton is an electrical self-defense device that uses a high voltage to stop an attacker from harming another person. Just touching a person with the prongs on the stun baton "quickly" immobilizes the attacker and temporarily renders the helpless.
Since a stun baton uses a relatively high voltage, the charge will pass through heavy clothing and skin.
A stun baton is a powerful multipoint 'stun gun." A stun baton can make an attacker afraid with its threatening electric sound and stop a predator with a powerful high-voltage discharge.
