Unhappy empire B2 problem

So i went to turn my empire b2 on today and when i pushed the button
nothing happened i did this a few times and eventualy the light came on but
instead of feeding when its supposed to (when you shoot) it feed slow
and i mean extreamy slow like i could feed faster by hand puting the balls in 1 by 1 and then it wouldnt do anything and the light wouldnt flash or any thing. So i pushed the button a few more times and managed to get it on the bit that shows your settings and the where all normal I replaced battery
and its still not goin right so... (sorry about long post)

Make sure the batteries are brand new and high quality name brands like Energizer, Duracell, Varta, etc.
If that still doesn't work, check your connections to make sure they're secure and that there isn't any crud on the board from a hopper shot.

I got it sorted the problem was that i was using energizer rechargable batteries which is what i use in my gun they where fully charged and worked fine in my gun and my old tippman ssl hopper but not in my b2???
A fresh energizer disposible and it worked perfectly but i put in the rechargeable and it wouldnt go again. Problem solved now but let me know what you guys think about it.

Your marker and your other loader take 9 volt batteries - the Empire B2 uses a 4AA or 6AA battery pack. I'm guessing you are trying to power the Empire with a single 9 volt battery?

The Empire battery pack may attach to the loader via a 9 volt battery connector, but you are not meant to use a single 9 volt battery with it. This will severely underpower the loader, which is the source of your problem.

Even though a 6AA pack has the same voltage as a 9 volt battery, an AA battery is considerably larger than the six AAAA cells inside the 9 volt battery. This means that they have much greater capacity than the 9 volt battery, and can provide more current to power your loader (power is calculated by multiplying current and voltage, so more current at the same voltage equals more power).

To give you an idea of the difference, a rechargeable 9 volt battery has a capacity between 200-300mAh, whereas the capacity of a re-chargeable AA battery can be as high as 3200mAh. That makes for a huge difference in battery life and power available.

The HALO/Empire B loaders are intended for use with multiple alkaline or lithium AA batteries.
