Reportedly, the new X3 emits just "63 microcoulombs" [LINK] of energy as compared to the X26 taser's specified 100 microcoulombs.
Right off the bat, this significant reduction in output power is a tacit admission by Taser International that they now realize that the X26 taser overstepped the mark with respect to subject safety. Hopefully this will assist the victims' families with their lawsuits.
I'm sure that the folks at Taser International will be able to maintain smug and straight faces when responding to questions about this obvious retreat.
Furthermore, this retreat may be significant larger than acknowledged. I was left with the distinct impression that the X26 taser's specified output of "100uC" was a sort-of nominal value. When I integrated the area under the curve [LINK], it appears to be well above 100 uC.
What's required at this point is justice.
Now that Taser International has essentially admitted that the X26 was unnecessarily dangerous (with respect to risk of death).
Plaintiffs' lawyers - attack!
