    hey guys,
    I just bought this setup, planet eclipse etha with a dye rotor. It’s my first marker so i’m kind of a noob, sorry for that.
    I’m going to take it apart, clean and assemble everything.

    Now my question is. Can i use a rechargeable 9v battery in the marker? And can i use it in the hopper? Or do you guys just take disposable battery’s?

    And how long does a battery last in the marker approx?

    Thx guys!!

    Rechargeable batteries are not recommended.


    Standard batteries and rechargeables run at different rates due to battery technology and physics


    Duracell procells are common, but a few are mentioned on the following thread

    We recommend either paintball energy or Official Duracell ultra batteries, not Industrial Duracell.

    There is no rough guide on how long the battery lasts all depends on how much you use it.

    Also try not to buy a box of Ebay Duracell's on the cheap, stick to supermarket.

    Thanks guys!! That’s all the info i need.

    Just another quick question. I already checked a lot of videos for the planet eclipse etha maintenance. They almost all grease up everything except for the bolt and bolt guide. They say you need to keep it dry and clean. But i have the tech t mrt bolt in my marker and if i look to the review of the bolt, the manufacterer says he oiled it up?? ( )

    So i don’t know what to do??
    What do you guys do?

    Yes that's correct you don't need to lube the Bolt or Bolt Guide on the Planet Eclipse version, I cant speak for the Tech T Bolt.

    All I will say is don't use any aftermarket internal products with our guns, they're not correctly balanced with the other components in the marker and may cause you issues.
