1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for a pepper spray

1.1 Size

The ability of the can to dispense the pepper spray liquid depends on the can’s size. A can larger in size doesn’t mean more efficiency as many other factors need to be considered. We have to consider the size of the can concerning the convenience while carrying it around. The laws for carrying the maximum amount or length of a pepper spray vary according to regions. There are tiny handy sprays attached to a keychain and medium-sized cans that can be carried in a purse or a bag. The ideal size that is used by people widely is a 100-gram can.

1.3 Range and Pattern

Determine the spraying pattern of the pepper spray from the nozzle. It varies from cans to cans. Some cans will spray a stream on to the target. Some cans can spray from a more extended range, enabling you to distance yourself safely from the target. Inhaling a steam spray is more brutal and has less impact on the target. There are more effective mist sprays, but they only work the best when sprayed from a short range. There are types of cans that spray foam onto the target. This allows more accuracy and any collateral damage. However, it only works well in a short range and also needs more time to affect the target.

1.4 Types

Stream: A standard steam spray will give a good range of 15-20 feet from the attacker and still be effective. It is also determined by the canister's size and the remaining amount of the spray available in the can. Avoid using such sprays in closed areas as there are changes; it might end up being inhaled by you during the time.

● Fogger: Fogger sprays work the best when sprayed from a range of 4 - 8 feet. As we all know, fog is a set of tiny droplets sprayed into the air; this flow can be easily disrupted if there is even moderate wind. This can cause the flow to change directions and harm you in return.

● Gel: Gel sprays are to be used in closed spaces. As they are not affected by the wind flow because of the thick nature of the liquid sprayed, they are significantly more impactful as they latch onto the attacker once physical contact is established. You can spray upto a range of 25 feet using gel sprays.

● Foam: Foam sprays have designing characteristics similar to gel sprays. Hene, they can be used very efficiently indoors. They can be sprayed from a range of 6-8 feet and are least affected by the flow.
