How To Recharge Taser C2 Battery

Are you carrying a C2 model Taser gun? Is your battery getting low? Do you know how to charge your taser C2 Battery? Having a fully charged weapon is imperative for your safety when you are in a potentially dangerous situation.

The last thing you ever want is to be within the range of an attacker and find that your taser battery is too low to fire your weapon or to maintain an electrical shock long enough to disable them. Your C2 taser can save your life only if the battery is properly charged and you have maintained the gun properly.

The battery in a C2 taser gun is not rechargeable. The battery included with your weapon should last through up to 50 firings if the weapon is properly maintained and stored according to manufacturer instructions. Once the battery in your weapon is depleted or completely dead you must buy a replacement unit. You can find replacement batteries through various online retailers. Most stores that carry physical taser gun inventory will also sell replacement parts.

Why Is Battery Life Important?

To start, no juice means no shock. The Taser C2 is a battery operated weapon. Once the battery is dead or has been removed the gun will not fire. Aside from firing, a strong and healthy battery is key in self defense using a taser gun.

These weapons deliver a powerful punch from up to 15 feet away. A single battery is good to be used up to 50 times. For most people using a taser gun for self-defense, one battery may last them several years. That said, it’s important to know how much life your C2 battery has left. You never want to be in a situation where you think you have a weapon but in fact it’s just a paperweight.

The C2 does have a low battery indicator light, so you don’t have to stress too much over counting how many times you’ve fired the weapon. It’s a good idea to have a backup battery ready when your indicator light does start flashing to make sure you are never left without a charge. Ignoring the low battery signal for too long may leave you vulnerable in the event you are attacked.

How Do I Replace My Battery?

You can buy replacement batteries like this one at an affordable price. You may notice in this particular listing, the product offered works in both the C2 and Bolt model guns. If you’re an avid follower you may already know the C2 Taser has been discontinued and replaced with the Bolt.

If you aren’t an avid follower and are just now learning your C2 is no longer in production, don’t worry. Replacement batteries are still available and are interchangeable with batteries for the Bolt.

Once you’ve gotten your new battery, swapping it out is easy. Watch the video below for a quick tutorial on how to insert your battery and load your weapon. All you have to do is drop the old battery out of the gun, insert the new one properly and you are back in business.

It’s a lot like re-loading the magazine in a pistol. Batteries are sometimes labeled to show you which side should be facing up when the into the gun. It’s a quick and simple maintenance step.

It’s never a bad idea to have more than one backup replacement battery. Again, with fluctuations in storage, temperature changes, and intensity of use, one battery may not last as long as another.

How Do I Store Extra Batteries?

Just like any battery, you should keep your backup taser gun batteries in a climate controlled space. If you allow them to get too cold, you’ll drain them of their charge and make them useless. You should also avoid extreme heat.

You shouldn’t store your replacement batteries near a fire source, in direct sunlight, or in a vehicle. These extreme temperature variations are hard on batteries and can affect performance. You want to keep them stable and charged and ready for use at all times.

The area where you keep your batteries should be clean. You want to keep the area free of debris and dust that could collect on your battery and effect its performance. You want to ensure it looks like it will operate properly. Check for manufacturing defects as soon as you remove your new battery from the packaging.

You want clean, fully functional backup batteries for your weapon.

Are They Expensive?

Most C2 (or Bolt) replacement batteries range from $35-$50 depending on where you are buying from. The main issue really is to check reviews for the issuing company to make sure they are reputable and selling new, quality batteries.

The upfront cost of a replacement battery may leave you with a bit of sticker shock or make buying multiple units at once difficult. However, when you consider each battery lasts up to 50 uses and possibly for several years, the price becomes easier to digest.

What About The Bolt?

Let’s briefly review the Bolt, since it has replaced the Taser C2 model. You can review the specs and purchase one here. Some of the features of the bolt include a 30 second muscular override, Laser assisted targeting, a 15 foot safety range, contact stun capability, and a childproof safety door.

It gets bonus points for using the same battery cartridge as the C2, so when you’re ready to retire that model you don’t have to reinvest in your stock of replacement batteries.

We’ve reviewed how to charge your Taser C2 Battery (you can’t) and some important points about monitoring the health of your battery. It’s important to know how much power you have left and have backup energy available in case of an emergency.

Remember, the C2 taser gun was replaced with the Bolt, so if you happen across packaging that’s advertising the Bolt, it’ll work for your C2. Always store your weapon and all replacement parts and accessories according to manufacturer instruction to ensure proper function.
