  • Tazers - Technically how do they work?

    Can someone give me the quick run down of how they work please?

    Is it high volts - low joules?
    or low volts - high joules?

    I think it's the second since it's only being run off of 2 AA batteries (right?)



    My question stems from me getting to witness a guy getting tazered. They aren't kidding when they say once you've had it you never forget. This guy was CRAZY...and he was whimpering like a baby for them not to do it again.

    It was great.

    50,000 volts, and less than .004 amps. Actually, it runs on either 8 aa batteries or a seperate power magazine, depending on the model. Probes create an electrical loop that jams the sensory motor system. Brain can't communicate with the muscles. Yup, it's impressive and memorable.

        Thanks for that info.

        I was wondering since 8 AA batteries are:

        1.5V x 8 = 12 Volts Which isn't too much.

        It's amazing that they were able to convert the electricity from such a small amount into something with a lot of punch behind the zap.

            Our taser training video said it was about 3-4 amps on the m26, about 6-10 on the x26.

            Pretty low since a AED puts out about 250 amps.
