Yellow Jacket Introduces World’s First Smartphone Defense Case


Yellow Jacket, LLC, a Louisiana based technology startup, has officially launched Yellow Jacket, a patent pending iPhone® 4 & 4S case housing a 650,000 volt stun gun designed for personal protection. The iPhone® case also contains its own battery which provides up to 20 additional hours of charge to the phone. Yellow Jacket was made for iPhone® owners that find themselves on the go – independent working professionals, frequent travelers or students entering college – as a convenient, reliable and non-lethal form of self-defense.

With safety in mind, the inventors equipped the smartphone case with several safety features to prevent accidental discharge. The features can be engaged in one second, enabling the owner to be ready for action immediately.  With the flip of a switch, the user can toggle between charging the phone and having the stun gun in “ready” mode.

Inventor and co-founder Seth Froom, a former US Army MP, devised the concept for Yellow Jacket after an armed robbery he experienced in 2011. Froom and co-founder, Sean Simone, partnered with leaders from the stun gun industry to ensure the product is of the highest quality.

 “The personal security industry hasn’t seen a product like this in years. The way that the stun gun is concealed while also packing a strong punch is just amazing,” said Billy Pennington, holder of 13 United States patents and owner of Personal Security Products, Inc. (http://psproducts.com).

The Yellow Jacket team launched a campaign via the crowd-funding platform Indiegogo.com about a month ago. To date, almost 1,000 units have been ordered during the presale phase, which ends on July 31, 2012 at midnight.

“Because of several recent local and national incidents, we feel that more people than ever are paying closer attention to personal safety. We combined a non-lethal form of self-defense with a technology that millions of Americans carry with them at all times,” stated Simone.
