  • Batteries Big Window Elite.....

    Bought my Miller BWE Helmet 6or7 years ago.... about 2 weeks ago the batteries started to give out.... ordered a new set of batteries today... CR2450,(takes 2)
    not bad battery life altogether... been a darned good hat all these years....

    CR2450 batteries are pretty unusual sized coin cells....the size of three quarters stacked each..Name:  10a8241a07f81259fd6621db7d80dd30.jpg

    I just had to buy one of those the other day for something. But they had it in stock at The source. Only 6.49 each though. Link 0.... Edit- I 'm thinking you meant 8.99 for all 4. I thought you meant 8.99 each when I first read it.

      4 for $8.99

      Actually it was 4 of them for $8.99 including shipping...

      could not even find them locally... I thought it was a pretty decent deal..

      I was really impressed that the batteries lasted as long as they did... and pleased as the devil that they are easily replaceable... in this disposable world.. hope to get another 7 years out of that hat

        In my area Walgreens sells them. My hood went dead on a Sat noon and I hit all the likely places first Wlamart etc. On a lark I stopped at Walgreens and they had several on the shelf.

            Could one of the Miller guys post the service memo dated August 18 2010 regarding replacment batteries?

              What service memo???


              • #8
                I hoped that one of the Miller guys would post it because it has pics that won't show up on my old tattered copy.
                It says that because of the physical dimensions causing the lens to operate intermittently to only use Panasonic or Miller packaged batteries.

                            Elite Batteries


                            I'm so glad I found this post, I was ready to throw my $350 dollar Elite helmet in the trash. Changed to the Miller replacements (Panosonic I got) ALL is fine now.

                              So I was about to toss my lid as well until I found this thread. I have been having intermittent flickering issues since my battery change two days ago. As I need my helmet first thing in the morning - before I can get the right sized cells - I shimmed the top side of the low shoulder batteries I'm using with some heavy paper just under the tang to hold them more firmly in place. Flicker is gone for now. This trick may tide you over until you can get the right ones.
