The Paladin Toaster has a black and gray casing as opposed to the zap glove's blue and yellow as well as green lights along the wrist instead of blue. There are three coils along each side similar to the heating coils of an actual toaster. It inflicts more damage than the zap glove and does bonus damage against robots and enemies wearing power armor.
