    We had several speed glass helmets at work they didnt last very long had the same trouble you mentioned with going off. ours would do it right in the middle of a weld. so we switched back to huntsman best we have had so far.

    My Speedglas 9000X is either 5 or 6 years old now. Still have the same OEM batteries. I use it 5 or 6 days a week. I manually turn off the helmet vs. letting the 1/2 hr timer turn it off. Never had a lick of trouble. The only quirk I've found to the helmet is that is does go back to shade 3 (non welding) during a weld once in a while, but that is either because I'm in such a tight spot that my hands are shielding the helmets sensors, OR that my outer lens is so darn dirty that the sensors are not getting a clear signal for Arc On-time. Pretty much the same issue both examples. I just move my head so the sensors aren't obstructed anymore, or change the outer lens. No big deal. LOVE THE HELMET. Am thinking of buying a new 9002X and using the one I have now for a back up.

    Later,
    Jason

    Default 9000x

    WILL ONE OF THE MODERATORS PLEASE THROW THE "MAKE MONEY AT HOME" OUTTA HERE??!!!!!!!!!!
    anyway....
    I bought my speedglass 9000x and the original batteries lasted almost 3 years. 2nd set I put in (Energizer was all the drugstore had) lasted 3 months. I'm on the 3rd set now.
    When I'm welding around pipe, it blocks the sensors and I go blind.
    When I'm doing regular tig on the table, sensors cut out 1/2 the time.
    Regular mig and stick; good 100%
    Just bought a Miller Elite and will use it only for tig (don't want to ruing the graphics). For around pipes? $40 huntsman....
