Safer and more effective than the X26E, the TASER X26P is a piece of law enforcement technology that’s been improved inside and out, with an intuitive design, diagnostics, and charge metering.


The TASER X26P is our smallest and most compact Smart Weapon, and its ergonomically designed handle is made with ease of performance in mind.

The TASER X26P is larger where it matters—in the handle.

Similar to previous generations of TASER weapons, the TASER X26P is a single-shot device that does not require replacing inventories of cartridges.


With its compact size and familiar shape, the TASER X26P can be conveniently carried.

Its intuitive design makes for a smooth transition to the next generation of Smart Weapons.


Redesigned from the ground up, the new XPPM helps protect the cartridge blast doors from damage during field use, and the new forward-facing design makes for more efficient reload.


We’ve taken a trusted piece of technology and made it better.
