I keep looking at this, and to be perfectly honest I can’t quite decide if I think it’s a good idea or if they’ve completely lost their minds. Quite possibly a little of both, really. Of course, we all know it is no longer socially acceptable to smoke cigarettes, at least according to the campaigns where I live and the laws being regularly passed that heavily restrict where it can be done. Which leads to smokers being shuffled off to dark alleyways, dark corners…out-of-the-way places in general, and quite often alone. In turn, that means that smokers are more vulnerable to attackers, if you think about it.
This is a Multi Function Cigarette Lighter and Stun Gun. Yup, you read that right. Not only does it light cigarettes (or candles, whatever), but it contains a stun gun! The next time you find yourself smoking in a dark alley behind a building all by your lonesome, you need no longer fear that the creepy-looking guy walking toward you will be a problem. Just make sure you don’t put it away, and you’ve got 260KV of stun gun power at your fingertips.
It’s made of ABS engineering plastic and alloy metal, and features a nickel-cadmium rechargeable battery. Charging time is apparently about ten hours, so make sure you think ahead. It also has an LED flashlight (more help for those dark corners). These are actually fairly reasonably priced at $20.39 US.
