Skullringers: slang for a set of brass knuckles fitted with a shocker. Not a popular weapon, as their use is limited to particularly ugly fistfights, their size means that the knuckles can carry only three charges, and it's quite easy (as Rafe indicates) to hold them wrong and get a shock right along with your victim. But they are small, easy to slip on, and legal almost anywhere (even, say, a college campus).
This was a rather cruel page to be late with... but it was also complicated, and neither work nor the kidlet has been particularly easy on me this week. Sorry, guys. That part, at least, was unplanned cruelty.
