well i was pullin my battery thingy out of it and i noticed it has the same connector as a 9 volt battery so i put one on there and it worked....

how long do you think it would last?

actually they should go the same speed, but the single 9v will run out of batteries faster. the reason the 2 9v setup is good is because after running it for awhile it will be at the same speed as a 6 pack, and 2 lasts longer than one. the system works?

It won't go the same speed, I've done this.

The dual 9volt mod is what you want, its significantly lighter and gives the required 18 volts and not just 9. I made my own but you can buy them like anywhere.

6 x 1.5 (aa battery voltage) = 9 volts. and if you use the 4 pack, thats only 6 volts. 18 volts is way over the "requirement". I'm no great electrician, but in theory 9 volts should be equivalent to 9 volts. there may be some differences in current though, which would explain the difference in speed at the same voltage. Two 9v power sources putting out the same amount of current will make a wheel turn at the exact same speed, but a single 9v battery wouldn't last as long as more than one smaller batteries.

And action village has a 2 9v battery clip, which should be much better than two 9v connectors similar to the one already in the halo. I've never seen one in stock, but they're there... backorder maybe?

QFT!

wiring the 9v batteries parallel makes them last longer and put out the same voltage. (9v)
wiring them in series doubles voltage and doesn't add any duration.

18v would be a very bad thing.

Parallel = red to red and black to black
series = red to black and black to red.

long story short, if you aren't sure, either ask someone to help you w/ the mod, or buy a prefab one.

**edit, and for the record, I love the 9v mod. I run one in both of my reloader B's and all but 2 guys on my team use them in their halo's. ( the 2 guys get free AA's from work... what can ya do?)

Yea my bad, I set it up so it did 9 instead of 18. A single 9 volt goes a lot slower than 6 AAs or 2 9volts. Go ahead, try it, I've tested it. One 9 volt just won't cut it.
