    Has anyone had any experience with the Jackson range of welding helmets? I was looking a5 the WH50 model as a first helmet.

    Looks like a BIG “no” so I won’t buy one of these!

    Mine was an expensive pile of poo with batteries that lasted a year and weren't technically changeable. Don't buy one if you can't change the bats. Even then I think they're overpriced.

    Brings up a few pages of results - link

    I've had a Jackson for 10+ years, not sure what model it is though.

    Thank you for your updates. You’ve confirmed for me this isn’t good choice! Am now looking at the R Tech Auto True Colour welding helmet alongside the ASEB G40.

    I’m finding deciding on a helmet up to £100 more difficult than choosing which welder which I just bought as a newbie. (Lincoln Bester 190c).

    Stay safe.

    I once had a Weldability Phantom XL and thought it a nice lid for the price, well the lens is nice, the lid itself is just your normal everyday shell.

    Bloody hell, just looked at the price of them now and the cheapest I could see was £92 incl VAT, I think I paid around £70 a few years back.

    Esab G40 is horrible.
    Esab warrior tech/savage a40 are both way comfier and better built.

    Or maybe a phantom XL, they're really quite decent for the money.
