If you're considering a taser as a method of self defense, let's think it through...
All the mugger needs to do is place or wrap a layer of tin foil or aluminum screen across his chest and stomach area (under his outer layer of clothes) and it will short-out the taser darts. Then he can walk up to you laughing and beat you to death while the taser sparks harmlessly across his thorax.
Tasers as a method of self-defense are a stupid idea. I predict that sooner or later you'll see someone armed with a taser killed because they were armed with a taser.
At least the 'Anti-felon ID tags' dispersed by the useless taser will help to identify his or her dead body.
