Re: How many settings on a Phaser

Don't know about TOS phasers, but per the TNG Tech Manual, the little phasers, Type I, that fit in the palm of your hand, go from 1 to 8. Type II, which are little larger and we see more often, go from 1 to 16. The Type III rifles are similar to the II but with a greater power reserve. There are also variants of Type I that are limited to setting 3, heavy stun.
