Stun Gun Effects And What They Do

Have you ever wondered why a stun gun is an effective defense weapon, and more importantly, how it works? Since the Edison/Tesla DC versus AC debate, we know that AC current can kill. Why don't stun guns kill? It has to do with Ohm's Law; w=v(a) [Watts (w) = Volts (v) times Amps (a)]. According to an Ohio State University study, currents between 100 and 200 mA (0.1 to 0.2 amp) are lethal. Stun Guns are less than lethal due to their lower AMPERE rating! You could be hit with a 1,000,000 Volt stun gun and it would have the dame effect as a 50,000 Volt one, or a 20,000,000 Volt one! In ORDER to be "less than lethal", the Amperage can not exceed around 10 milliamps (0.1a).
So, now you might ask "what is the difference between a 50,000 volt stun gun and a 20 million volt stun gun?
Good question. And here is the answer! In order for the amperage (which is what kills--voltage isn't) to be under the lethal limit, the WATTAGE must necessarily meet Ohm's Law in order to be safe and effective.
