I have used Optrel Welding hoods for at least ten years and never had any problems with them. I'm not talking about one hood either, I'd say more like about five of them, which I still have. I worked for GM and they were very generous in the safety area. All of mine were solar powered only, as I thought all of Optrel hood were. No batteries to go dead.

I contacted Optrel about a problem that I was having out of warranty and they sent me a new cartridge. They sent it next day air and told me to send my old one back when the new one was up and running...no questions or money! I was very happy with this level of service and would recomend their products to others as well. Jeff
