350 Volts - a safe and harmless ‘zap’

I think every smart phone should have that built in. Hold it in your hand for more than a minute and it zaps you.

Are you questioning how safe 350 volts may or may not be?

If so consider the voltage points of contact pretty much need to be within a few inches of one another somewhere on that braclet. Not the same as contacting ~300 volt conductor of a premises wiring system (277 not far below 300) with your hand contact with "ground" via your feet.

Also consider electric fence chargers can put out 10-15kV, yet is pulsed and at such a low current that it isn't normally going to electrocute anyone. Might cause more injury from reaction than from current that passes through you in many cases.

I really enjoyed this anecdote from a reviewer:

The creators call the technology "biohacking", but the idea grew from distinctly analogue beginnings. A few years ago Maneesh Sethi, Pavlok's CEO, hired a woman via Craiglist to smack him whenever he used Facebook. This worked so well that he figured we should really all have our own personal, portable slap-happy woman.
