Review: Have used this hopper for some time with no issues. I've mostly used it in semi, but I've tested it with ramping and it seems to keep up with the 12bps just fine. There are several speeds you can set it to, I have always just left it on the fastest speed, and haven't had a chop yet with it on. I have forgotten to turn it on a few times too, and it loads pretty well as just a gravity hopper, so if your battery does go its possible to keep playing.
The battery life is amazing, the first battery lasted 3 months. The lid snaps tight, but not so tight that it can't be opened. It has never opened accidentally during play, even when I dropped my marker. The ball capacity is amazing, I did a test to see how many would fill it up, and it will take 220, however, it seems to best if not packed to the top.

The shell is basically 2 sides connected with screws, and a lid. Taking it apart for cleaning is possible, but not really something you'd want to do more than a couple of times in the life of it. The board and the battery sit underneath the main compartment, so rain really isn't a problem, however if you use water to wash out the inside its possible to get the board wet.

Because of the large capacity, the front profile is slightly wider than other say the revvy, but it could worse. The feedneck seems slightly longer than it needs to be, but it is hard plastic and can be cut down if needed.
Conclusion: Overall a good hopper for anyone using a mech or less than 13 BPS elec. maker. Not a high end loader, but it does the job it was intended to do and its simple insides make it very reliable. Throw the nice price in too, and I think this is a solid product.
