I purchased this product for my sister. She and II looked over the instructions together and were perplexed at some of the wording. As for the actual product, I am not sure how it works since we have not tried it out...and no one has volunteered to be the guinea pig. I am concerned about one statement made in the instructions: something about damaging the bulb (of the flashlight) if it is on while also using the stun gun. Am I to interpret this as, "turn off the flashlight before stunning a would-be attacker?" Aside from the instructions, the device seems well-made and it is a manageable size.
I purchased this for our van as a car jacker prevention tool. We do a lot of interntional traveling, so keeping this in our van is the perfect asult prevention tool. Even our kids (3 teens) know how to use it in an emergency. I feel safer having this when we travel in places we are unfamiliar with. The item arrived just as described and after charing it overnight it works perfectly. Our new van has a 120v plug so it stays charged all the time. A very clever idea with the combination of an LED flahlight, and a stealthy sort of stun gun. I plan to acquire a few more so everyone in our family has some kind of self defense protection when needed.

I purchased this item because my wife and I travel a LOT, and when she goes out to walk the dog at night, in an unknown place, I wanted her to have the combination of a flashlight and personal protection of the "stun gun". But, out of the 3 LED bulbs, only one of them works, and that one flickers on and off - no constant light. And, although we didn't try the stun gun on each other (Ha!), it does seem to work, but my wife needs a light when she walks the dog, so she has to use a different one, which doesn't have the personal protection capability of this device. Although it is definitely possible that I could have received an "out of the ordinary" defective item, I'm not prepared to risk my wife's safety on something which may or may not work. (And, just in case you want to say that I should be walking the dog instead of my wife, the fact is that, whenever she is uncomfortable about the area, I DO walk the dog for her, but when she feels relatively safe in an area, she actually wants to walk the dog, and enjoys doing it.) Anyway, with my apologies to the manufacturer, for any negative impact I may have on their sales, I feel that I should tell you, the customers, about my experience with their product. My suggestion: better quality control.
How accurate was the sizing? Correct.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Flashlight doesn't work well, and although I left it plugged in at all times, it didn't seem to hold a good charge.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No.
