06' Shocker

Vision Imp
Strengths: Much Better Battery Life
Instant Feeding
Easier Mode Changing
Simple Install

Weaknesses: The 15 minute auto shut off bothers me sometimes. .
Review: After purchasing my Vlocity, I was quickly disappointed. Not in the feeding rate, but with the battery consumption and the flaky performance I was getting. I was barely getting a case of paint off of a fresh set of 9 volts. The hopper would also periodically just stop working. I was ready to move on to another hopper when I decided to try the Blitz chip.

Adding the Blitz chip instantly fixed EVERY problem I was having! The mode changing is SOOOOOO much easier now and the electronic rip drive is a really nice feature. Even on setting one, the hopper easily keep's up on 17 bps ramping. I have gone through over 2 cases of paint now and the batteries are still working! That's something I never thought I would see! The install takes about 10 minutes and is real simple.

On setting 4, which need's to be set each time you turn it on, this thing feed's insane! I would bet money it's over 37 bps free fall!

If you own a Vlocity, spend the measly 30.00 and treat yourself to pain free loading!
Conclusion: The company with the best customer support makes a chip for your Vlocity and you're still reading this? Go buy one and thank me later!
10 out of 10

I dont believe that the quote on the batterys lasting only a case is accurate. I have owned my VLocity for well over 6 months and have needed to change batterys maybe 4 times while playing 2 days (with 2 - 3 cases a day) per month. I will admit, the battery life is awful compared to Reloader B's and Halo's however it does last quite longer than your giving it credit for.

I completely agree with irish...
my vlocity was terrible too, not even a case from fresh 9v duracell batts n wasnt feeding over 13bps!!!
i didn't use it nemore till i bought this chip... its amazing!!!!

yea, same with irish and leons. my batteries fresh wont barely last a case. i've had my hopper for 3 weeks now and have spent over $20 in batteries.

what you guys should do is store the batteries in the freezer of your refrigerator. It lengthens the life of the battery. Trust me this works. If youre tired of buying batteries all the time, buy lithium 9V from Awesome batteries. They last me a long time and when using the blitz chip, they last even longer.

No, I wasn't lying at all. My guess is something was wrong with my stock chip.
