answer 2
I am using standard alkaline in mine with no issues what so ever, more dependable than NI-CAD or NIHM as they loose a lot of charge when sitting between uses.

The way this helmet works is that it starts and functions from the batteries until there is enough power in the solar cell to operate the helmet, which is all of the time outdoors and any time you are laying a bead, Then that takes over. It isn't really a "charging" circuit.

This helmet uses 2 AAA batteries. You can use rechargeables if you choose, or conventional non-rechargeables. Batteries are easy to replace.

answer 2
The grinding mode turns off the auto darkening so you will be looking through the light green shade but I don't know what the shade level is. It is too dark for me to use with grinding so I replace it with a clear shield. I use it with my plasma cutter on grinding mode and it works great.
