The PepperBall Compact launcher now includes a refill kit.

Sometimes a gun simply ins’t an option, for whatever reason. When less lethal becomes the choice, PepperBall just announced the release of a new Compact Refill Kit for its single-shot Compact launcher.

PepperBall Compact Refill Kit

The Compact launcher comes preloaded and ready to shoot. Now the Compact Refill Kit provides a quick reload for additional less-lethal shots. The kit comes in two options: Inert/Live or Live only.

The Compact launches PepperBall projectiles at 130 mph. It creates a kinetic impact with a debilitating pepper cloud. Defensive use disables threats up to 30 feet away. The device weighs less than 3 ounces, making it highly portable.

“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.”

More remains better regarding defensive ammo. Now PepperBall offers more in its single-shot launcher. For even more information, please visit
