Frequently Asked Questions

Is the TASER 7 CQ rechargeable?

No. However, the batteries are user replaceable and provide enough energy for many uses. You can find a TASER 7 CQ replacement battery here.

Are the cartridges reusable?

Each cartridge can only be fired once but can deliver multiple electrical cycles. That means that while the darts can only be projected at a target once, as long as the darts remain in the target after the initial 5-second electrical cycle, subsequent electrical cycles can be engaged.

What is the effective range for the TASER 7 CQ cartridge?

The TASER 7 CQ cartridge has an effective range of 4 - 12 feet.

After the cartridge is fired, are you completely defenseless?

All TASER energy weapons are equipped with back-up stun gun features to be used after the cartridge has been deployed.

Do the probes need to hit a specific area to be effective?

As long as all conditions for NMI are met (including probe connection and probe spread), a current can flow through muscles and the attacker can lose control of said muscles.

Will a TASER 7 CQ be effective on an attacker in thick clothing?

The darts can penetrate clothing and the electricity can also jump up to two inches of combined distances between the probes and the skin.

Will a TASER 7 CQ incapacitation effects work on larger, stronger people?

A TASER energy weapon may work just as well on a 300-pound man as they will on a 150-pound woman.

Will a TASER 7 CQ work on an attacker who is high or intoxicated?

As probe connection and probe spread are the primary conditions for NMI, a probe deployment's ability to induce NMI does not depend on the target's mental state.

What’s the difference between the civilian TASER 7 CQ and the Law Enforcement TASER 7 CQ?

The civilian TASER 7 CQ is 100% identical to the Law Enforcement grade TASER 7 CQ.
