I have a Kobalt auto darkening hood:

It has been in storage the last 6 months and the batteries will not charge now from the onboard solar panel. It flashed me pretty good.

Anyone out there have this helmet and changed the battery (ies)? Care to share any details before I open it with my hammer?

Thanks all!
Chris
