Fix for auto darkening helmet flash

by Jake

If your auto darkening helmet is giving you light flashes, there may be a fix.

Some of them are solar powered. If your helmet doesn't have a provision for changing the battery inside it, it is almost certainly solar powered. These types can run low on "juice" after being stored in a dark garage for an extended period. The fix is to place the helmet outdoors facing some bright sunlight for about four hours. This recharges the helmet and lets it work likes its supposed to. After that, actively using it should keep it charged.
