This isn't your typical Keepin' it real fake, normally these things are about impressing your friends and shocking your enemies, but not literally. The Sony Ericsson W700 clone Pretender 950,000V takes the concept a literal step further, as it isn't really a cell at all, it's a stun gun. Featuring a whopping 950,000 volts of juice, a two stage safety switch to prevent accidental discharge -- good thinking -- and even a 12 LED flashlight, and all for only $59. Cool idea for those living in dodgy places, but we'd like to see someone add an actual cell radio to this with remote discharge in the event it ever gets lifted from your person.
