Question Battery Life on motorized loaders?

We want to know what kind of battery life you expect from your loader.

1. What kind of loader do you have? (modifications too)
2. How much paint have you shot on a set of batteries?
3. What kind of batteries did you use?
4. If asked further questions, do you have tech background?

If you got results from one type of batt. then change types and try again. Let's keep it simple so we can sift through the info. and get some real results to people. This is to look at all loaders and not just one kind.

Thanks ahead of time,
TEX

Halo B
so far sitting at probably 5 cases on this set of batteries seemed to be getting a bit tired late in the day yesterday. I don't disconnect the batteries when i'm done with it.
Fuji akalines 40 at BJ's for 15 bucks seems to last as long as duracells
fairly techincal have an associates in electronics technology

WAS turbo'd 12V revy
really depends if i remember to disconnect the battery every weekend but if i do i would say 8 cases or so
duracell 9 volts

Talking Battery Life...

I now am using a HALO A with Lithiums Photo's. The combo has made me VERY happy. I'm up to 9-10 cases on them... Although it is still feeding fast, I will get fresh batteries for it... better than having my front guys bunkered and pissed off

In the past, I have had all sorts of Revs and Mod'd Revs. The best battery life came from a stock 12v Rev.

The worst (although best performing before the HALO) was an 18v Intellifeed That thing funnelled paint into my Warpfed Angel and was spining almost constantly through every game. No... the motor and eye didn't last long. But WOW it was fast.

If I got 5 cases on a fresh set of E2's, that was great.

1: Halo B on "Pure Energy" rechargeable Alkalines.
Shot about 16K with them. NO signs of slowing up. Halo was still feeding 21ish bps after that.

2: Revy w/X Board on 2 9V Duracells.
Shot about 5-6 Cases then changed. Red light was annoying me.

3: 18V Shredder w/ 2 9V Duracells.
Still going stong 4 years later. Don't ask me how or why. :p

Overall, I much prefer the Halo B to any of the loaders I have used. Overall, most balls fed per dollar spent on batteries.

Ricochet 2K. Usually one 9V Duracell or Energizer will last a 6 hour day and about 1 to 1.25 cases of paint. I use the timer in almost every game. I'm not a tech.

ricochet 2k w/ new style motor
i use duracel 9v
Ricochet claims 50,000 shots on their website-- im not actually sure. Mine has lasted me at least 4 cases but its low and i feel its losing some power.
Im not a tech but i could probably explain most of the rico to you because ive had mine apart so much

(working on a hardwire intellifeed version of it for my bushy)
