Viewloader introduces the all new VL Quantum electronic agitating feed loader. This 140 count electronic loader designed for the intermediate player features a spring-loaded flip cap lid, one touch operation, a feed rate up to 8 balls per second, and a high impact resistant shell. The new VL Quantum loader requires one 9 volt battery (Not Included). Available in Diamond Clear only.
The Viewloader Quantum is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Okay, I was desperately looking for an electric hopper a few months ago, and picked this up at Wal-Mart. I just dug it out of my basement a few days ago, so I'm writing the review now. I put it on My 98 Custom, and outshot it when I was walking my double trigger. That's sad. I can't imagine what would happen if I'd had my R/T going. Also, the impeller is constantly moving. It's very loud, and the belt is slippery. If the motor dies on you while you're shooting, the impeller will block balls from entering the feedneck, even though it's just a plastic rod sticking up. But here's the real killer. I was playing one day, and the hopper took a direct hit in the middle of the cheap plastic body. The whole left half of the hopper shattered like glass. So I figured I'd take it out and replace it with an old VL200. Big mistake. I ended up in the emergency room. Turns out if somebody broke it, you could pull the hopper off and stab them. The plastic is as sharp, if not sharper than broken glass. I cut myself right below the pinky, and ended up being able to see the bone and tissue of my finger, and I cut a major artery. Thanks for another crappy product, VL!
It's not only crappy, and doesn't work. It's dangerous and expensive.

spryder e-99 avant got a 20 oz co2 and this loader
Only 8 bps
Pretty good loader for a begginer/intermiediate player, the only bad thing about it is that it is too loud it get really annoyin, if u dont play speedball then this things noise will give away ur position from like 30 yards,cheap loader and its not bad for the money i havent had one ball break inside yet but for some odd reason the thing pushes the paintballs away from the whole
Pretty good loader for the money u should get it if u want to just upgrade ur gun a lil not bad for 30$ i give it a 8 for performance and looks
JT Excellorator 3.5, smart parts teardrop barrel,VL Quantum hopper, 9oz
Does not feed well.
I got this product becaused I needed a electric hopper for a small amount of money. After I used this I was dissopointed. It does feed paintballs, but when it is full the agitator jams since there is no sensor device. When there is not alot of paintballs in your hopper it actually moves them away from the feeding tube. It is also very noisy. The pluses are it looks cool and it has a low price. I would reccomend this to a player who is tight on cash and is desperatly in need of an electric hopper.
I would not normally reccomend this hopper. There is just to many problems with it to be worth the price.
Great for the money
Does NOT push balls away from the feedneck
only 8 BPS
Read the key weaknesses strengths. Last words you might want to sand down the feedneck, it sits a little high and sticks out. I have had really good experiences with this hopper. It has yet to push balls away from the feedneck on me. Really good hopper for the money.
Ok how should i start, well my friend got one in a vl triad package at walmart. This thing by far is the worst hopper you can by. The 5 dollar vl200's are better then this. They cost anywhere from 20-35 from what i have seen. My friend ended up taking the electronics out and just using it as a gravity feed hopper, it is really that bad. The continous agitation got on my fricken nerves as well while having my friend on my team, they other team knew where he was every time.
Don't Buy This

2003 wgp orracle white-blue-black
wgp torpedo drop
14in evil pipe kit blue-black
68/4500 crossfire hp tank
Everything see below
Ok i ref at my local field and see more of these than i do gravity feed hoppers and let me tell you id rather hand feed the bals then ude on of these.
-neck is curved forward= worst thing posiable it makes it very hard for the balls to feed right
-loud loud loud motor, when i can hear the motor of your hopper from a few bunkers away its too loud
-single "paddle" dosent do anything
-keeps going all the time , yes i know its suposed to but if you are not going to put a sensor in make it a pulsing agitatior or somethign like that
-breaks paint, i was chroning in a kid and the thing kept breaking paint inside itself
i seriously see people using this as a gravity feed and then when they get a missfeed they turn it on really quick instead of having to shake it
spend the extra money and get a revy/reloader or if you just want somethign small get like the 15 rnd stock class adaptation hopper
(Bad X turdness)/ price= do not get this unless you just want a gravity fed hopper that u just have to flip a switch instead of shaking and only turn it on to clear a misfeed
this woudl get a -11 but the numbers do not go low enough
Theres nothing similar to this hopper, except manually feeding balls into feedneck with hands. even thats faster.
Spyder Imagine 2004
JT Elite Radar Mask w/thermal
20 oz Co2 tank
-often given with marker packages
-Only requires 1 battery
-not as breakable as revy
This is a poor design, especially the fact that its being sold for so expensive. First of all, there is no ball sensor, so for the hopper to feed anywhere near 8bps the impellor has to be constantly on to feed the balls. Two problems. Firstly, its extremely loud, giving position away for more than 30 feet. And no, the sounds of markers firing does not drown out the sound of the impellor. It also makes u look like an idiot.
Secondly, when the impellor IS on, it pushes balls away from the feedneck, giving gaps in the feeding, making an extremely unsteady slow feed rate.
finally, THE BALL CAPACITY!!! it holds only 140 balls, but then it jams the impellor. around 125-130 balls is all it holds!
I also realized a minority problem recently when using this. The poor impellor design often breaks SOME paint inside hopper.
Please dont purchase this, its horrible. If you are, get a gravity feeding instead, and shake it once in a while IF you are on a budget. Or spend 35 dollars and get a mach404. Do not purchase this. However, IF you are getting it for free in a package with a marker, mask, co2 (etc.), then dont let reviews discourage you from getting the package.

~Shoots 8 balls per second
~Pops balls like crazy!
Do not, I repeat, do not get this hopper! It does not work for any gun! It pops balls, 8 balls per second, and listen to this, my friend has the Quantum, bang, bang, bang, pop, pop, pop! Definitely a waste of paintballs. Even though it's a cheap hopper, and it maybe all you can afford, I recommend saving twenty extra dollars, and get the Ricochet.
My final recommendation for this hopper is quite simple, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GETTING THIS!!!!
tippmann 98 custom
16" tru-flight barrel
12 gram adapter
Its electro.kinda koo looking.sometimes the shotes bounce.cheap
on all the time.bad on batteries.dosent fit alot of markers
Very bad.dont get me started. cheaply made.slow.
on all the time.bad on batteries.dosent fit alot of markers.its so bad.it actualy pushesthe balls away from the hole.very sorry.ave up and get a revv 9vt or 12vt.be smart.listen to me.dont get it.
Just save ur money and get something way better for only 10 bucks more.
14" smart parts all-aamerican barrel, empire evolution b hopper, e-blade, nitro system
2004 Outkast Autococker
Won't load sideways=no side shooting
Short battery life
It's better than a gravity feed hopper, but it still isn't that great. The agitator much loader than any other hopper and you always have to manually turn it on and off. This kills batteries really fast. The clear body allows everyone to see how much ammo you have left. The agitator can get jammed and that can lead to ball jams and chopped paint. Cleaning it is a pain because it must be completley taken apart. It only holds 140 rounds and loads about 7 rounds a minute. The casing of the hopper is so thin that it can crack when it gets shot. You can't side shoot when you use this hopper and the lid is hard to snap on. In a game, if you run out of ammo, you're pretty much screwed.
DON'T BUY THIS HOPPER. If you ever want to become a good paintball player, save up your money and buy a good, quality hopper like an Evolution or Halo hopper.
