Frequently asked Questions

IS THE WEARER INSULATED?
Yes. Conducted Energy Clothing has a unique electrically insulated layer between the wearer and the charged outer layer, which will keep the current from coming in contact with them.

WHAT ABOUT WHEN IT RAINS?
The layer system of the CEC is teflon coated and waterproof. Water will not soak through. Even wet the CEC will still safely function.

WHAT IS IT POWERED BY?
The CEC requires one 9V battery. Battery duration varies greatly depending on usage.

IS THIS EFFECTIVE ON SOMEONE WEARING GLOVES?
Yes. We've tested fabric gloves and even thick leather work gloves and both are vulnerable to the current.


Conducted Energy Clothing (CEC) represents a fusion of clothing and personal protection, a completely new category in personal protection technology. It is a wearable defensive apparel system that provides wearers the ability to break contact from a hand-to-hand struggle. When activated, any aggressor touching the exterior surface of the CEC receives a high-intensity non-lethal charge that causes them to immediately withdraw contact. CECs have a unique layered structure that insulates the wearer from the high-intensity charge and at the same time distributes it on the outer shell of the clothing delivering it to an aggressor.

The outer shell of the CEC is made of a teflon coated waterproof supplex nylon, water will not soak through to the layers beneath. Even with the outer shell wet it will still function. The layered textile structure is flexible enough to be worked into a variety of clothing designs like outerwear jackets and even suits.
