VIPERTEK VTS-881 – 35 Billion Micro Stun Gun – Rechargeable with LED Flashlight, Purple

The Vipertek stun gun can knock an attacker to the ground. It is light and easy to put in your purse or carry in your hand when walking anywhere.

I have one of these and it still works after a year of not having to use it. The device easily fits into your hand and the cover makes it slip-resistant.

When using this stun gun you need to make sure you make contact with the skin or touch prongs on thin clothing. The stun gun will not work if someone has thick clothing or a heavy jacket. That is why you should also carry pepper spray.

Best Tasers

Taser Pulse Compact Laser LED 2 Live-Cartridges Soft Pocket and Target

The difference between a Taser and a stun gun is the Taser shoots a projectile at an attacker. The projectile is attached to a wire and the voltage travels through the wire knocking the attacker to the ground.

Customer questions and reviews:

Some people commented on the quality saying it felt like a plastic nerf gun. Several people said battery cover keeps falling off which means the batteries fall out. Many people liked it and said it performed as advertised.

2nd Taser we liked

Taser Pulse with 2 Cartridges, LED Laser with/2 Cartridges, and Target, Black

These are great to have if attacked. You just need to make sure your state or city allows you to carry and use.

I would also practice with it a few times before carrying it with you.

You want to see how the projectiles shoot and overall how it works. I would not test on a family member but maybe you can test on something soft but will not burn.

  • Taser Pulse with Laser LED
  • 2 Live Cartridges
  • Lithium Power Magazine (Battery Pack)
  • Target
  • Battery rated for 50 engagements before you have to buy a new one


  • Comes with two cartridges
  • Has a laser LED for accuracy


  • No flashlight
  • Battery not rechargeable
  • Have to buy a new cartridge after each use
  • One customer said its $35 a shot so expensive for a replacement cartridge

Customer questions and reviews

A customer asked how long the battery will last without the use and the manufacturer says should last 10 years.

I would test it maybe each year just to make sure. One customer is saying he had to replace the battery after 5 months.

Another customer said the on / off switch did not work and the company would not give him back his money. Many people like it but there is some negative review you should look at.


There are several to chose from and all of these we liked based on using them before and customer reviews.

Buy one or two to have with you so you can keep you and your family safe. I have one I carry with me or in the car and the other is in my house by the night stand in my room.
