The LifeLite of­fers ef­fec­tive, non­lethal self-de­fense. It launches a phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal-grade PAVA pep­per pow­der ball up to 60 feet. To en­gage the threat: Pull the safety pin (as on a grenade), slide the safety for­ward (which turns on the laser-aim­ing guide), and press the trig­ger. Al­though we found it to be pretty ac­cu­rate, di­rect hits aren’t re­quired—the pep­per­ball bursts into a 12-foot cloud of ir­ri­tant that dis­ables the at­tacker for up to 15 min­utes.

It’s semi­auto with a five-shot ca­pac­ity and uses a stan­dard air­gun CO2 car­tridge. The built-in flash­light is 350 lu­mens. It ships with five live SD Pep­per­balls, 10 in­ert prac­tice balls and three CO2 cartridges. It’s about the size of a Maglite (circa 1990s) and the weight of a loaded 1911. (We en­joyed shoot­ing the in­ert—and not-so-in­ert—pro­jec­tiles more than we should have.)
