iPhone Pepper Spray Case


Yes, you read the headline correctly. A company in Europe by the name of Piexon has developed an iPhone case called the SmartGuard that doubles as a pepper spray case. The small pepper spray canister clips into the case, along side your iPhone. It can be quickly deployed, in the event of a personal attack. If you live in a rough part of town, maybe this is for you? Self defense is something handy to have, but pepper spray is not legal everywhere, so be cautious if you plan on ordering one of these.

Here’s what the company’s website has to say about the product:

In the event of an emergency you just detach the pepper spray unit from the iPhone case. The pepper spray is immediately ready to use.

The patented spray canister design with a co-axial nozzle delivers the irritant agent along the centre line to avoid twisting of the nozzle and self-affection.

Attached to the iPhone an integrated safety tab prevents the pepper spray from accidental discharge. By taking the pepper spray from the iPhone it will be automatically unlocked.

The SmartGuard pepper spray provides 6 1/2 second bursts at a range of 1.5 meters (5 feet). After use it is disposable. Replacement pepper spray units are available.

  • 10% Oleoresin Capsicum (2 Mio SHU)
  • 6 1/2 second bursts
  • 1.5 meters (5 feet) range
  • Locked when attached to the iPhone case

    Pepper spray isn’t legal in Canada for use against humans.  You can buy it as dog spray, but I’m not sure if you’d be charged if you used it against a human, even in an emergency.. You probably wouldn’t want to go carrying it around so obviously either way.

    I foresee another “you’re holding it wrong” fiasco.

  • LOL! I smell ‘Peppergate’ coming our way.

    Indeed, And it’s illegal and considered a weapon many, many, more countries. Only the USA and a few other allow the pepper stray. So this pepper spray thing is pretty much limited to the USA.

    Spraying another person CAN be assault, obviously if you use it as self defence the authorities will act accordingly.

    Not sure I’d want to be holding that up to my face to talk on it.. The spray would be aimed right at your eyes ready to go off by accident….
