Poor quality control

"Helmet DOA. Changed batteries and still dead.
Got an RNA but had to go back and ask for a postage paid sticker. Want the helmet replaced with one that works. I'm now using my wife's Miller Elite and starting to wish that I had bought another one instead of this…
Package almost impossible to open without heavy cutters.

DOA

"I am returning the SECOND helmet for the same reason as the first. Both were DOA, and would not even turn on. I already own the 1644910, which has proved to be excellent. I'm actually going to order ONE more, since there are features on this helmet I really want. When it arrives, I'll write another review. If it is also DOA, I'll give up. No, there is no chance I'm mistaken, didn't check batteries, didn't allow it to reset, don't understand solar cells, didn't read directions, etc., etc. Two of them were DOA. Period."

"I was a little leery about buying an unrated helmet, but I was sick and tired of using #5 shade goggles with a rotten elastic band when using my new Northern Tools Plasma 375 torch. So I started the on-line hunt for an auto-darkening helmet that would go down to a #5 shade for cutting. I was *amazed* the only one I could find was this NT product, so I took a chance and ordered it. I was very pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it was and how lightweight it is. The quality seems very good and changing modes or adjusting sensitivity/delay is very simple and intuitive. It comes with an extra lens. There are four arc sensors and a solar charger which will extend the life of the two lithium button batteries. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this product."
