The World's fastest loader takes it up a notch. Not one to rest on success, the minds behind Empire's Reloader B, introduce the next generation of ultra-fast loader technology the Empire B2. Built in adjustable sound sensitivity allows you to harmonize the B2 with the sound signature of your marker. The six selectable motor speeds and spring tension monitoring prevent ball breakage with even the most breakable shells. All of these techno-features combined with a well balanced shape and increased ball capacity makes the Empire B2 the ultimate loader to provide an unrivaled feed rate.

Strong shell. Very fast. Empire did a outstanding jonb on the B2.
I bought the b2 off line and when i got it the first thing i looked at was the lid was it gonna stay shut if i was to tip the loader upsidedown fuly loaded with paint and idk y but it didnt. ;(. This is what the item Description said "CLEAN REFURBISHED. Never used. 100% tested and in original box!" and also it said Empire Reloader B some how when i got it the box is a Empire Reloader B2. i have no idea what it is if its a b2 or b.
I would recommend the Empire Reloader to any one it is a grate loader to have.
There's not much to say really. Just get this hopper. People will tell you magnetic lids suck and sound activated sucks. well they're full of f*cking s*it. I can have my hopper full and tip the thing upside down without the lid opening. But int he middle of the game it just flips up with the flick of a thumb and flips down with a tap. With halo's you have to snap the lid which is a waste of time. This thing has 6 speed settings, 1-slow 6-around 30 bps. Also you can change the setting for the mic so if you have a quiet gun it picks it up easier or if a loud gun turn it down so you don't waste batteries, AND THIS HOPPER DOES NOT PICK UP THE SOUNDS OF OTHER GUNS! like some people will tell you aswell. even if it did theres a setting on it that detects the tension on the balls and will not turn the motor if the drive cone can not move the balls. Another reason I like this over the halo's is because there are no eyes to jam and this hopper "get's out of the gate" more quicker because of it. With eyes,you have to wait till your feedneck runs out of paintballs before it starts feeding right, well this hopper starts feeding when it hears your gun shoot. And it does not keep feeding after you have stopped shooting. so say you only took one shot,it would feed one ball in and stop. there are two reasons for this, 1. The spring tension setting, 2. the mic only tells the board to feed for as long as it hears a gun shot.

Heavy vs. say a Vlocity, hard to clean if paint breaks inside
I bought this because i just wanted a Halo style loadcer again. I like them even though they are heavy vs. my Vlocity. I got some Hybrid Shells which help with the cleaning and i think they look sweet. Great Loader and not badly priced. You can really personalize these loaders with upgrades and give your set up a lil flair in the loader dept.
If your interested in a new loader id suggest this one.

I purchased the empire B2 over the reloader B because of the upped features that I could get for about a tenner more. I had never used either the reloader b before, but I had heard alot about the loader and I wanted to give it a go.
The hopper came and first thing I noticed was the size of the box. It was about the same size as my PMR box so I was a little suprised. I took it out of the packaging and it was very big, and it only holds 180-190 balls, which isnt as much as a few of the cheaper hoppers available. Half of the loader is taken up by batteries and wires, but I did think to myself how cool it looked. The smoked version is really nice, but there are plently of shells to change your loaders colour if you are not happy with it. The lid is pretty heavy duty and magnetic, and is easy to open and close, but stays closed. The neck was massive and I had to sand it down for about 30 mins for it to fit in my feedneck. It fits in with a really snug fit however, and does not fall off at all. The backplate is easy to use, and the instructions tell give you detailed instructions on how to change the settings.
It comes with two options, either using 4 AA batteries or using 6 AA batteries. I opted for 6, but the added weight made the hopper pretty heavy and made my marker top heavy. However, I turned the thing on and did a drop test. Goddamn this thing is fast, I got at least 20bps with the default settings which I was pretty chuffed about. The batteries havent run out on me as of yet, after a couple of full days in the woods which is good. I also hear that you need the more expensive batteries to help this beast run faster so it might be a little expensive on the upkeep if you are a very active person and use your reloader regularly.
The first day down the woods with my reloader b2 I got some pretty good reactions from other people. They all liked the look of the hopper which was good, and when I had a full air tank on the back on my marker it evened the weight out a bit which I was relieved about. One problem that I had was telling if the marker was on or not because the light was really not that visible. When I started shooting the hopper performed great. There were no jams, but sometimes the marker wouldnt pick up the sound of my gun, but the sensitivity can all be changed in programming mode so this wasnt a major problem. I went through paint faster than I ever have done before!
Lastly I have to say you have to be careful with the reloader b2. The thing scratches quite easily because of its material, but this can be avoided with leaving it in the protection it comes with when you are not using it.
A great hopper that performs well, and is aesthetically pleasing. There are a few problems with size and weight, but they arent really major and other people use the Halo and the reloader so you arent at a massive advantage. Even though it is a little pricy, it is worth the cash.

I love this hopper. Though it is expensive, it has alot of bang for its buck. Holds alot to and is very reliable.Though the weight and price bring it down a little, in a couple of months it will drop so buy it then. I recommend it to anyone who wants a fast, reliable, and fun hopper.
Buy it you wont regret it.

Very Fast, same tuff halo shells, very tunable board
New style shells with magnet lid
In this review I will compare the B2 with the Relaoder B because the B2 is a new and iproved version. The B2 is awsome! but I wish they would have kept the original reloader shells the magnet lid will apeal to many of course but I bought diffn't shells so I could put on a speed feed so thats was that. Anyways the new reloader board is so much better than in the B1, 6 speed ajustments that realy let you tune the speed by slight incraments and microphone ajustment, no more days of your hopper going off because of the guy shooting next to you. With the old reloader the fixed microphone setting would be about 3 or 4 with the new B2 board. With my shocker wich is very quiet setting 2 is just right and again the ajustment is very fine inbetween. Also batteri life is greatly increased espeacialy over the old Halo B and that again is do to being able to fine tune the loader. Now onto the upgrade in speed of the loader there isn't a huge change from the original reloader but on speed setting 6 in a drop test will dump 150 balls in just 4 seconds with the last few rattling down if you do the math thats about 30bps give or take now of course the feed rate will varie from each marker setup and generaly be slower than a drop test due to some small gaps. I tested the loader on speed setting 4 with my shocker 20bps eyes off and it didn't skip a beat.
I have tested all the top loaders out besided the pulse and thats because I would never use one on my marker, personal opinion of course. But the B2 is by far my favorit, I love the new B2 board its awsome! but the magnetic lid has to go
viewloader velocity (what I have now)
(The B2 was my first hopper)
e-tek with a wave trigger, viewloader velocity, 14in all american barrel, pmi 68ci 4500psi tank, empire tank cover
Size, speed, and tough.
I like this hopper. The shell is just like the halo so most of the upgrades that go to the halo would work on this. This hopper feeds a lot, 25bps I think is what I got out of mine a couple times. The one weakness that I find is the battery power. Like the halo it runs on 6 AA batteries now in the long run that will add up in price. Other than that I find its a good hopper.
This hopper feeds fast and is a tough hopper, just watch the battery power on it. Buy a few recharable AA batteeries. I give it a 9 just because of how many batteries it needs

ion... virtue board,eyes,hollowpoint bolt,cp reg, cp hp 68/4500 tank
Fast, quiet, spring tension monitoring
although heavy, I still like it and would still buy it, my settings are default, fully loaded mine has a 172 ball capacity lid cannot be closed with 173 balls on mine, but im sure it can change depending on the way the balls stack up, im giving it a 9 out of 10 because if it was 10 it means it was given to me as a gift, but it was not I paid retail for it lol. adjustable mike sensitivity, motor speed, spring tension monitoring to avoid ball breaks, can be powered by 6 AA or 4 AA batterries, looks nice, and since its sound activated its quiet, comes on only when you fire, also good for woodsball when you just hiding in one place for a period of time, no annoying bizzing sound.
You wont be disappointed with this hopper, I suggest when you buy a hopper or tank and have the extra 30 - 50 dollars to spend, go for the higher end one so you wont have to keep on upraging, you can upgrade your marker all you want and still use the same hopper and tank.

The Empire B2 is one of the best hoppers available! If you can spring the cash for this I would definitely recommend this loader!!! This thing is Fast, Reliable, Good Battery Life, NO-Eyes, looks good, plenty of accessories. The only loader I've seen perform better than an Empire B2 is the DXS Pulse with a sync'd an RF chip.
Highly recommend this hopper!!!! Fast, reliable, great battery life, and did I mention its fast?
ego 07 with crossfire 70/45 tank and powerlight septor o7 kit
Nice size, MAGNET LID
Hard TO SET
The SPEED IS BETTER THAN THE "B" BUT WITH THE OPTINS FOR BALL TENTION,SPEED, AND SOUND LEVEL IT IS HARD TO SET. IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU COULD GO TO THE INDIVIDUAL SETTINGS. THE MAGNETIC LID IS NICE HOLDS CLOSED WELL IS EASY TO OPEN BUT ALWAYS CLOSES
This IS A INPROVEMENT OVER THE "B" BUT IT CAN STILL USE SOME USER FRINDLY IMPROVEMENTS
