    I cant see them selling the lens for $10 when by adding $1 worth of plastic in shape of welding hood cost 30-50 depending on if it is on sale. Must be a mistake.
    I have a couple of the HF AD hoods and I have to keep the one I am using (other is still in the box) in the sunlight to keep the battery charged otherwise it wont darken for a few seconds. It wont burn your eyes even though it doesnt darken, just makes a few bright spots in you eyes.
    The hood is a couple years old and kept charged hanging on the wall up until a couple months ago when it stopped working. I took it out into the sun and left it a few days and it worked properly. I then make a hook to hang if directly in front of the shop window so it could get some sunlight since I havent been in the shop much in the last few months. I think this is what caused it to quit working properly just setting in the dark. I dont see any way to replace a battery in it, maybe it uses some kind of capacitor to hold the charge till the welding light charges the solar array. Anyway, if you have one, keep it in a well lighted place or exposed to some sunlight in order to keep it working right.

    I have found that if I put mine in the sun while i am running my leads and clamping all my work the helmet is good to go by the time I need it.
