The Yellow Jacket is an iPhone case, an extended battery, and a stun gun!

The Yellow Jacket is an iPhone case, an extended battery, and a stun gun!
Traditionally we’d say you should never bring an iPhone to a gunfight, but with this new Indiegogo project, you might be able to. The Yellow Jacket is a product of the minds of Seth Froom and Sean Simone. The idea came about after Seth was the victim of an armed robbery. He sought to combine a personal protection device with an item everyone carries with them all the time.

The Yellow Jacket is an iPhone 4 and 4S case that also doubles as a stun gun. The stun gun packs a 650K volt punch of electricity and can be deployed in as little as 2 seconds. Because the stun gun has its own battery, the Yellow Jacket can also be used as an extended battery for your iPhone, giving you up to 20 additional hours of juice.

The Yellow Jacket is slated to cost $125, but to get this project off the ground, you can pre-order one in black, white, or pink via Indiegogo for just $100. Unfortunately, stun guns are illegal in several states and cities so before you run and grab that credit card, known that the Yellow Jacket will not be shipped to Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Annapolis, MD, Baltimore, MD, Baltimore Country, MD, Chicago, IL, Dennison, IA, Crawford Country, IA, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia, PA.

For the rest of you, if you think the best defense against a gunman or other attacker could be your iPhone, head on over to Indiegogo in the source link to get behind this project.

Thanks to our tipster for sending this in!

One thing Charlene left out is that android models are expected to be coming later.

In Louisiana, a stun gun is the least of your worries. It has a "Stand Your Ground" law. It allows possible assailants to be shot even without a threat of deadly force (a threat of some force is required).

Just acquired the Barbour IMJ to go with my other new purchase a Triumph T100 but that's yet another story, the belstaff jackets outlet came as rapid as I ordered it and it truly is just beautiful and effectively created. I have looked at several jackets for casual riding and this can be the perfect thus far (I never like leather) plus my wife says I seem like Steve McQueen in it "LOL" It is possible to even put on it being a informal all weather jacket in most climates. The sizing is appropriate on as I'm 6'2", 210 lbs. and also a 46 chest so I tried the 46 and it fits loose sufficient to place a sweater on underneath. The stitching is extremely sturdy and looks really safe along with the zipper is the greatest I have ever witnessed, just good all all around I would recommend this and also you do get your monies really worth I gaurantee as I've looked at alot of jacketsRead more belstaffjacket info you can visit the online store:

I have a question. What do you do about the violent children or criminals that will get their hands on this to use to hurt and use it for crimes. Especially now with all those children that wild out or the violent flash mob mentality. How do you stop them from doing violent acts with this thing. They just gave children, bullies and criminals more edge and leverage against their victims.
