Frequently Asked Questions

Is the TASER X2 rechargeable?

No. However, the batteries are user replaceable and provide enough energy for many uses. You can find a TASER X2 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.

Can I buy cartridges longer than 15 feet?

No. Civilians may only purchase 15-foot cartridges. Only Law Enforcement agencies can buy cartridges of other lengths.

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 X2 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 X2 incapacitation effects work on larger, stronger people?

Will a TASER X2 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 X2 and the Law Enforcement TASER X2?

Other than the length of the cartridge that is available to consumers, the civilian X2 is 100% identical to the Law Enforcement grade X2.
