    I seem to remember some one on the askandy forrum a while back ago haveing a simmular problem. Cant say for sure it was a speedglass though. I think they replaced his filter for him.

    I use my speedglass at work. The biggest problem I've found is The sensor are located in a way that they are easily blocked. If I need to do tight work I throw on old dependable, No electronics. The other problem is, when a forklift passes by the lense will flash with the beacon on the lift.

    Default speedglas warranty

    The warranty on the hood is for one year and the lens is for three years. At least thats what my dealer did for me.

    Default re: helmets

    its 2yrs on lens, optrel, jackon, speedglas , miller is 18 months. helmets are like cell phones, if you have had one for 5 yrs, you have got your moneys worth, drop it once or twice, it may be down hill, its lens is crystal, and all self enclosed, no repairs, so be careful with them,

    Default re : speedglas

    the warranty is 2 yrs, take it back, they will replace it , the optrel isnt the better alternative, it has the small lens, and no batteries, then if it isnt used regularly, you must put it in the sun to charge it, also for out of position, or grinding, try the miller elite helmets, or the jackson next gen lens, jackson now has a full view lens, the largest of the brand names, it just came out.... you should get yrs out of a 3M speedglas
