Stun Batons, or stun sticks, are the catch all term for blunt melee weapons like batons or staffs, which generate a stun field by way of a standard power pack. This particular product is sold in great numbers to numerous law enforcement agencies and security firms throughout the mid and inner rim. It accepts standard blaster type powerpacks, which are inserted into or affixed to the base of the club, and which provide 10 stun charges which are released on contact with any solid or energized surface. The light weight design means it deals very little physical damage- it hurts to be hit with, as many criminals will attest, but it typically does not cause any permanent damage. Instead, a successful strike imparts a stun blast equal in strength to a standard medium stun bolt- a direct hit on an unarmored head or torso will often render the victim unconscious, while hits on unarmored limbs will render them momentarily useless. Armor protects the wearer to a degree, but successive strikes provide a "bleed-through" effect, progressing from a sharp shocking sensation to the aforementioned unconsciousness.
Legal in nearly all systems, and in some places a preferred alternative to blasters.
