Shark Shield eSpear Product Description

 

These are due in December so get in early for your eSpear Today!

 

The Shark Shield eSpear is the worlds first hand held electrical shark deterrent and is perfect for snorkellers, spearfishermen and scuba divers. Using Shark shields technology, this small and compact device is the ideal accessory to have when getting in the ocean to give piece of mind that you will have protection on you at all times. The eSpear works by giving off an electronic pulse which affects the sensor in the nose of the sharks. All and only sharks have a jelly filled electrorcepotor in the end of their nose called the Ampullae of Lorenzini which is a sensor and is what they use to find prey. The Shark Shield technology sends out electric wave forms that overload this sensor which makes it extremely uncomfortable to be around and causes muscle spasms resulting in the shark fleeing the area. 

 

The eSpear is a trigger activated device that will turn on as soon as you pull the trigger. The small hand held eSpear measures 26cm when closed yet extends to 60cm when the trigger is pulled as it releases the baton style electrode. As soon as the baton opens, the electrical current starts and when folded back in, the electronical pulse ceases. Being small and compact you can clip it on to your dive belt, swimmers or wetsuit or you can purchase the holster as a seperate item. 

 

It comes with a docking station where you can recharge the battery and the handy LED light indicator with let you know when charge is due. The eSpear can be recharged 1000 times before a new battery is needed. When using the eSpear, the trigger is pulles, however when putting it away you will need to hold it above water and fold it back in to itself or if under the water you will need to use a dive glove or wetsuit to fold it away. The range on the eSpear is approx 1m diameter or 2.5m in length.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Does it work?

 

 - Absolutely. There are many scientific studies out there that prove that the Shark Shield techonology works. All sharks have an electrical receptor in their nose which spasm when near an elecrical field so when the eSpear is on and close to the shark, it will turn the shark away with an uncomfortable feeling.

 

Does it hurt other fish species?

 

 - No. The Shark shield technology only works on sharks as they are the only animal that have a jelly filled electrorcepotor in the end of their nose called the Ampullae of Lorenzini. 

 

Will it attract Sharks?

 

 - No. There is no scientific research that shows this.

 

Will it shock me?

 

 - If you were to touch the baton whilst it is on i the water it will give a little shock so keep hold of the handle and you will be fine.

 

What is the warranty?

 

 - The Ocean Guardian eSpears warranty is 1 year fro date of purchase. If there is a warranty issue, it will need to be sent back and assessed by Shark shield.
