“We are very excited about our new Compact,” said Andrew Brennan, CEO of PepperBall. “Consumers have been so positive on our flagship LifeLite personal protection product. The LifeLite, originally designed for the military, provides unmatched non-lethal personal protection for the home, business, RV, or automobile. Consumers have been asking for us to complement the LifeLite with a smaller form factor product as well, something that can fit in a pocket, purse, and be easily carried in one hand while jogging. We are very happy to fulfill those requests with the new Compact launcher, which allows our PepperBall self-defense technology to be more accessible for consumers on the go, providing non-lethal peace of mind and personal protection from a distance.”
PepperBall projectiles are made in the USA and trusted by the U.S. Army, Marines, Border Protection, the Marshall’s service, and more than 5,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide.
