Yellow Jacket unveiled an upgrade to their stun gun iPhone 5c and 5s iPhone case. For $149, you can zap random people with your iPhone case up to 50 times while still having enough battery life to play Angry Birds in your spare time.

The upgraded 5c/5s models pack 1.2 miliamps of electricity and 950,000 volts, which is surely enough to make a person kneel over. The iPhone 4 and 4s models have less force with only 650,000 volts and .8 miliamps, which doesn’t pack enough juice to stifle an enemy, but comes in at a more pocket-friendly price at $99. Yet, you’d have to get your hands a little more dirty while trying to fight off someone, while iPhone 5 users can take justice into their own hands.

According to Seth Froom, the inventor of the Yellow Jacket case, approximately 1.3 million Americans were victims of violent crimes in 2011. After being victimized in a robbery himself, he was inspired to make a non-lethal device that protects users from crime. The case also provides up to 24 hours of additional battery life for those who are lovers first and fighters second.
