Depends how stiff the mix and how small the nozzle. All makes a difference. Gunning 16mm with a normal basemix you should be getting 80-90 tube fulls from the battery. Thatís a lot of bait. It only takes 15-20 mins to charge from near empty to full.

Can someone that has used one of these please give me an idea of how much base mix this gun will do on one full charge.
Thanks in advance.

I saw recently someone on a different thread say they managed to destroy theirs. Some simple do's and don'ts to make your gun last forever.

The mixes we put through this gun, are far far stiffer than any base mix you are ever going to put through it. Our mixes are extremely high fat, with added cork which is far more solid/stiff than any freezer bait base mix. It will handle any mix you want to throw at it all day everyday. It is far more robust than the very most expensive £360 Cox lithium bait guns on the market. They are so robust, if you put your old Gardner/Cox plastic collars on, they will literally blow them to bits. The plastic collars are not meant for the pressure this gun will exert. They are miles better than the Cox. Substantially better than my old Makita. But they cost buttons.

BUT, the motor ain't geared for running stiff base mixes. They are made for running caulk. If you want to roll anything stiff under 14mm, you need to use a multi nozzle to relieve pressure. If you try to run anything stiff through a single nozzle under 14mm, you will actually hear the motor struggling a little bit. 14mm & above a single nozzle is fine. 12mm & below use a multi nozzle to relieve some pressure.

Don't let your lithium battery run completely out. As soon as the 2nd of 3 lights goes out on the meter, recharge it. It's not a cell battery. Think of it more like the battery on your smartphone.

Do those two simple things and these guns will literally last forever. They are nothing short of incredible for the task in hand.

Good find. With one battery that's still at least a good score cheaper. (Your link does not work I copy & pasted item number). I should have looked on eBay again first. As I said it was an impulse thing when I saw them cheaper on Prime day. They are all exactly the same colour. It's just dodgy lighting on the different photos. All that has changed is the cosmetics on the battery and the name stamped on it.

Never oiled our units mate. The one in the first post is three years old and has been used so much it's unreal. It's still working like new. Unit and battery. Zero added oil.

I probably have more stored units than that eBay seller now though to be fair. Only two units have been taken out of the box. The extra tubes are very handy for us running different mixes and different colours. We have a tube for each now.

It was 18:30 on a Saturday and I'd been working since before 5am. I could not be arsed being more honest, I just added it onto that post. It's Sunday and I've been working again since 5am. At the end of today I will likely feel exactly the same way again

I saw your new post about your new batch of bait and the little extra you wrote about the bait gun, so easy enough to find the thread. Google search lithium bait gun carp forum and boom

Was it you that mentioned oiling one of the internal parts on the orange gun?

Just found one on ebay for £79...

I could not find this thread yesterday Baitman (lazy). The lithium battery on our original unit has not deteriorated at all. It's been used seven days a week pretty much, often for very long hours every single day for three years now. It's been charged many hundreds of times over and over again. It's still spot on with no noticeable deterioration. I posted this on the bait thread yesterday below. I keep stocking up, they are that good. You lot could never mess that battery up in your lifetime if you look after it.

I picked up yet another one on Prime day. It was a spur of the moment thing late at night. Cheapest on Amazon now is £160. On Prime day I got another one for £133 I think it was with a voucher. With two batteries I thought that was more than reasonable. It's black Friday soon, they will be cheaper again.

Coming all way from China now too. All of them on Amazon are.

I have used my gun several times now and the battery is still fully charged. Best things ever.

Did someone mention about oiling an internal part to help it live longer???

I messaged an eBay seller and he replied saying spare batteries can be had for £30 each.

I did wonder if it might be possible to get an adaptor so I could use a making battery off my drill

That is the exact one I was speaking about in the previous post Smurf. A member of this forum contacted me yesterday, to say they had tried to buy that exact one, and got this message.

I just got that message trying to make an offer. Try it. That is the only listing for it left on eBay, and the listing is no longer actually for sale.

Nothing great lasts forever. I hope you all got one at £90 with free delivery. They have all now disappeared off eBay I was told yesterday. There is one seller left on eBay advertising them, but you can't actually buy it.

Now they are only available on Amazon. They are rebadged, with a slight cosmetically different battery (exactly same thing). They also now come with an extra spare battery.

But they now range in price from £187 - £245, for what we all essentially paid £90 for.

We all had a right touch. Keep your eyes peeled on Amazon feedback and comments. Spare batteries will clearly be available for us I'd imagine now they are on Amazon.
