      Now that I have had some time with my Elite I am happy I spent the money on it. Light weight, great visibility, very adjustable for different welding, indoors outdoors, mig, grinding etc...

      And yes I am currently a hobby welder, I like to build cool $hit. Wish i had this helmet when I was a fabricator building fire engines.

        Miller Elite

        I, too, have a new Miller Elite (Inferno model). I like it, a lot. As someone else said, it's light and has a large viewing window.

        I'm new to welding; I'm taking my second MIG class now (third welding class overall). I'm told (by my instructor) the Elite isn't really designed for MIG, but I've not had a problem.

          I got the newer model BWE with the grind mode. It's worth the money.

              i wonder why he would think like that?? if its capable of seeing a TIG arc it can certainly see a MIG arc. untill about a year ago mine was MIG only for 5 or so years. inside and out. and i love it.

                  miller big window elite helmet

                  I recently purchased a miller inferno big window elite helmet. I used it in welding class and the low battery warning light came on after two days of use. I thought perhaps the original battery could have been weak but the next set of batteries also lasted two days before the low battery warning came on. The box the helmet came in said they should last about for 3,000 hours. I am getting only about 12 hours of constant use before the low battery warning comes on. It there a problem with my helmet?
                  thanks for your help in advance,

                    I have a Miller performance series. I've had it on my hear every day for just less than a year, and I love it. I've dropped it, and banged it around. so far so good.

                      Freind at school had the same problem, he just kept welding, the light kept flashing and as far as I know it is still running and flashing over a year later. If I had to guess I would say the low battery sensing device is malfunctioning.
