Want: $48 'Cigarette Pack' Cell Phone Jammer

Sadly, cell phone jammers are illegal in the U.S. because this country believes in allowing the loudest, most annoying people to talk freely on their cell phones wherever they want -- usually right next to you. Which reminds me: I was at Target the other day stocking up on Magnum Bazooka condoms and this lady stopped dead in her tracks to scream into her phone for a minute. You wanna know what I did? Waved down the nearest employee and told him she needs help finding enema bags. True story.

Disguised as a pack of cigarettes, the so-called "world's smallest cellphone jammer" disables a cluster of frequencies, mainly GSM and 3G signals within a 32-feet radiius -- turning crystal clear babbling into ear-splitting static. This could come in handy when trying to block out mommy from shouting at daddy for the umpteenth time. Price for quiet? $46.


In the U.S. cellphone jammers are illegal, with anyone caught with one punishable with a fine of $11,000 and up to a year in jail time.

Now, since they ARE illegal here, and the consequences are pretty hefty, I can't really recommend you go buy one for yourself. But I CAN recommend you go buy one for a friend and forget to ever give it to them. *wink* F*** I should go into politics.

There are Comments.
  • This is cool. Such a small yet so important gadget disguised as a pack of cigarette.

  • Yes, the cell phone jammers are illegal but I think that should be legalized. Government should not be allowed people to talk with mobile at some silent and serious places. This cigarette pack looking cell phone jammer is looking so creative.
