Poor quality control
I purchased this and it worked for about 5 minutes. The power button worked intermittently, the hopper shut off after 5 minutes, and it made a rattling noise. I called them and the technician treated me like a two year old and he made excuses for the rattling and function. He said they have problems with the eyes, and that they have made some with a larger shaft size (the reason for the ratteling) I asked to cross ship one on my credit card and was polite to him but he said I would have to send mine in for repairs even though I had a tourney that weekend. Spoke with the dept. manager and he refused to cross ship, he said that is what the warranty is for. I had this thing for 1 day!! He said they do not even have any new ones and no longer sell them direct. Also they were having problems with the dealers. Yeah right blame it on everyone else.
I am convinced that the only people who buy these are those with deep pockets. Stay away from this company, they do not care if they make a faulty product or treat their customer badly! Buy the Empire Reloader B, better company very similar product(better quality and service). I would have given this a higher mark for design, but their customer service was very poor.
I had the EXACT same problems. My eyes would only work if i tilted the hopper to the side; somatimes it wouldn't run on...For future reference, you can do the following:
-Push in the wires into the eyes more than they are; voila, eyes work again.
- Make sure the wires on the battery clip are sturdily in there.
-For the rattling, just screw in the impeller's center screw a bit and it will tighten enough to stop the noise.
I did that, after about 5 hours of fiddling, and now it's working perfectly. I know it sucks that they didn't work out of the box, but at least it works, albeit with a little tweaking.
you guys must fo bought some old ones at a garage sale or something because my halo b is the best hopper i have ever used. way better then egg because of its smaller profile and faster feed rate, i would give this hopper a 12/10 if i could.
