The XAPPM is a modified TASER CEW battery which shuts down the high voltage output of the CEW after 5 seconds and contains a built-in speaker that alerts the user to the impending shut down. The XAPPM provides an audible beeping alert for the last two seconds of a trigger activated firing cycle before automatically shutting down the device. The XAPPM can be configured to impact the functionality of the ARC switch based on agency preference. The XAPPM was designed primarily for the X26P CEW. Unlike the APPM, the XAPPM has an extension that provides a place to store an extra cartridge.
