4 arc sensors are located outside the viewing screen to detect any kind of spark or glare. These arc sensors are the real players for the auto-darkening filter.
Once they detect any spark the ADF quickly darkens the shade of lens in order to protect your eyes from harmful UV and IR radiations.

When the helmet is on the resting stage, it is by default on shade 4.

What I like:
I really like the design of this helmet. It looks quite unique and fashionable. If you are a professional welder, this design might stand you out in a group of welders. It looks cool! Isn’t it?
Tekware focuses on the protection of its users that’s why it has so many features to protect your eyes. First of all the glass material, which is made up of a double liquid crystal layer that gives maximum eye protection. Then comes the highly responsive auto-darkening lens, which protects your eyes from strain and fatigue during the welding process.
What I don’t like:
I found it that Tekware WH009 has batteries of short life span and personally I think this is not at all a reason to reject it, as it has so many other brilliant and mind-blowing features that give a superior level of eye protection.
You will find many other cool and a unique design welding helmet, but the performance and safety that Tekware WH009 provides are hard to find.
With such amazing protection level and unique design, Tekware WH009 wins the heart of so many users. So if you are a passionate welder, who loves to collect cool welding helmets, the Tekware WH009 will not disappoint you at all. Mark my words!
