Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray may be one of the best pepper sprays in the world. Lester Kiewit interviews its SA distributor.

South Africa has one of the highest crime rates in the world.

It is, therefore, a lucrative market for a Swedish invention launched at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Plegium® may be one of the best pepper sprays in the world.

Features:

  • It has a steady thin stream that shoots over 3 meters focused on the attacker, you get a few shots if you stop-start.

  • Extremely loud siren (130dB) upon firing.

  • LED strobe lights upon firing.

  • Pepper spray links to your phone. It calls (and sends a text message) contacts upon firing.

  • The battery requires no charging and lasts about four years.

Plegium® is available in black and pink.

It sells for R950.

Lester Kiewit interviewed Brett Webster, cofounder of Smart Pepper Spray SA, the sole distributor of Plegium® in South Africa.
