The helmet can cool down the body temperature by almost 15 degrees. It can work for 8 hours after full charge of 6 hours. It also has a goggle made of a hard plastic shield which protects the eyes of policemen from sunlight.

The AC helmets will ensure protection from the heat wave and enable the Traffic Police perform their duties without the physical discomfort of standing for long hours amid the unrelenting heat, the police said.
