  • Nexgen Helmet Question

    My Jackson Nexgen helmet came without a manual. Now I need to change the batteries. I can see where the two battery compartments are, but they are under glass and I can't figure how to access them without forcing something.
    Can anyone send me the manual, instructions, or tell me how to do this?
    Thanks,

      Mine 4 yrs old I
      think takes 4 cr2042 batteries or maybe 3.
      Just un screw take out that strap harnesses and push plastic tab pop module out. Might be one screw holding the module to helmet. Once module is out unscrew batt cover. Just be careful not to break plastic locking tabs

        Sorry, I didn't realize there were several types of Nexgens. Mine is a W60-HSL100 and uses 2 Quarter size batteries. You can see their pockets in the top right corners of the inside view of the lense.
        See Pic.

          From what I gather... Jackson was bought out by Kimberly Clarke

          and that the ADF cartridge is a "W60"

          http://www.kcprofessional.com/produc...ith-nexgen-adf

          looks like you unclip the cartridge from the helmet and squeeze the battery doors with your thumb and forefinger...and pull out to remove the batteries...

          BUT BE CAREFUL...from what I have been reading it is very easy to damage or destroy the cartridge retainer clip and battery doors...

          They sell a lot of them...

          http://www.kcprofessional.com/produc...ith-nexgen-adf

          was not able to find a manual ....

            A minor correction:
            Same model I have. and what H80N mention tabs are easily broken, I actually broke mine but lucky still able to re-attach that module to the helmet.

            Battery is CR2450, I bought 4 from Ebay last year and only 2 left at my battery storage so yes should be 2x CR2450 batteries..

            from this guy. Maybe you can find it in WalMart / Wegman , but definitely don't go Radio Shack, their batteries are staled (maybe it was the one I went to)
