I have a Halo TSA hopper that rarely works as I would like it to. The paddle and everything will be working fine for about ten minutes, then, it just stops spinning. Even when I try to power it down, the paddle still doesn't spin like it should when it is "ok to release power button."

Could the motor be bad?
Could the batteries be bad?

Please help me!

When in doubt always replace the batteries.

Do you think that the quality of the battery matters? I've been using cheapo Dollar General batteries and it hasn't been working. I'll go buy some energizer batteries tomorrow.

The battery quality absolutely matters. Name brand alkalines are recommended.

If you are using 9 volt batteries your local field or proshop should have some Duracell Pro Cell batteries. I highly recommend those. They last a long long time.

well if you do decide to get new batteries, never get rechargeables, they work great in the beginning, then after 20+ charges, they lose their maximum power and are not worth it anymore

Energizer E2 batteries are great the Lithium one or the E3 titanium batteries work good too. Try those if you still have problems then contact the manufacturer.

If you play your own game of paintball using Spec ops as guidelines and not as "law of position", put this in your sig.

I would suggest getting rid of it. I had one back in the day. Used it twice. Both times I had to send it back to Oddessy (sp?) to get it fixed.


If you really want to keep it, like everyone said, check the batteries.

energizers work well in my electronic paintball equipment.
