    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..Click image for larger version

    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.... http://www.thesource.ca/estore/produ...roduct=2300189 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...

      http://cgi.ebay.com/4-NEW-Energizer-...item336983396f

      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

                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

                            Kevin,

                            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.

                            Thanks,
                            Gary

                              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.

                              -Chris
