Literally, 95% of all Americans now carry a cell phone with them on a daily basis.* Specifically, 96% of men, 94% of women…and 100% of people ages 18-29 that were surveyed carry a mobile phone! More people carry a cell phone on them regularly than carry a driver’s license or money.
It only stands to reason that some out-of-the-box thinking company would eventually figure out a way of turning your cell phone into a defensive weapon. Enter Stinger Solutions, the developer of the Yellow Jacket Stun Gun Phone Case. This is not a stun gun that is designed to look like a cheap “fake phone.” This is a state-of-the-art phone case that protects your phone and you!
Why a Phone Case Stun Gun?
“So many people now carry a cellular phone with them it only made sense to develop an effective defensive tool working off of this type platform,” said Thom Buck, Chief Technology Officer of Stinger Solutions. “If you leave your home without your phone, it is one of the few things people will return for before they continue on to their destination. Even if they are leaving for only a few minutes…they are uncomfortable being without their phone,” said Buck.
Mr. Buck went on to say, “One of the first requirements for an effective defensive tool is that it should always be with you. It can’t help you if it is not with you when you need it and most people carry their phone everywhere with them.”
In fact, the basic premise for a defensive tool is that certain rules need to be followed to increase the chances of you being able to successfully deploy it under stress. Some of those basic rules are as follows:
- The device should be reliable and effective.
- It should be something you are comfortable carrying.
- It should be discreet so as to not draw undue attention to it.
- The tool should not require a great deal of training to deploy.
- Your defensive tool should always be either in your hands or close to your hands.
- Ideally, the deployment of the device should be intuitive and not require much thought.
This Yellow Jacket has a Nasty Sting!
The Yellow Jacket Stun Gun Phone Case is a two piece phone case that your mobile phone locks into. Once installed on your phone, it offers several important features. First, it offers superior protection for your phone. The case is made of a space age material that helps to protect your phone from “drops and bumps.” The case comes with a screen protector and wrist leash as well.
Second, it acts as a “battery backup,” for your phone! If you depress a small button on the back of the case, it will immediately begin charging your phone. It will provide hours of additional talk and standby time. This feature alone makes it worth attaching to your phone.
Third, it helps to protect you! It does this by concealing inside the housing of the unit a 7,000,000+ volt stun gun. Once you turn on the Stun Gun Safety Switch placing the unit is standby mode, all you have to do is slide the Stun Gun Activation Switch forward causing the electrode prongs to extend out of the front of the phone case.
When you then use a separate motion and depress the Stun Gun Activation Switch it will discharge a jarring electrical charge! Simply slide the Stun Gun Activation Switch backwards to retract the electrodes back inside the housing and the Stun Gun is deactivated and returned to standby mode. All of this can be done with the use of just one hand.
Perfect for Motorcyclists!
Whether you carry your phone in a pocket, phone holster or on a “mount” on your bike…you now have the perfect defensive tool readily at hand when you need it. Whether you are sitting at a red light and have someone uninvited walking up to you or anywhere else you might need a defensive tool…if your phone is with you why not a Yellow Jacket?

Buck explained that they are selling a huge number of Yellow Jackets to motorcycle enthusiasts. “The motorcycle riding community likes the fact that in most places you don’t need a Concealed Weapons License to carry a stun gun and that it has a high performance backup battery on the device. It seems like every day we are selling dozens of Yellow Jackets to bikers who like a discreet defensive tool they can count on,” Buck shared.
