First things first, if you are on the market for a good, cheap, solar powered welding helmet, you could do much worse than the Instapark ADF GX-350S. With a 0.000067 reaction time, it isnt the fastest, but its not slow either to activate the filters.
It has dual arc sensors that work well the minute an arc is struck. Instapark say that this auto darkening helmet will be suitable for almost all Sick, MIG and TIG welding, making it a fairly versatile budget helmet.
The design team behind the ADF GX-350s have tried to make the hood as economical as possible, while trying to make it fairly light, at 771 grams it isnt the lightest though. It does have a reasonable viewing area of 3.5″ X 1.375″
A major bonus is that it comes with a manufacturers warranty for 2 years. For an auto darkening welding helmet for under $40, this one is a bargain.Under $40! Best Price.
