Not so. You can re-charge the air bottle all day long. You simply won’t be able to get it up near its 3000 or 4500psi rating. You could fill it with 100psi over and over and over. You’re limited by the compressor not the vessel in this case.
Behalf Of Peter Arundel
You can't re-charge a compressed
air bottle for a paintball gun from a little compressor like that. Compressed
air bottles are filled to 3000 to 4000 psi. They are fitted with a regulator to
bring this down to a pressure usable by the gun itself, say 250 psi.
Is this in your video one of those little compressors that can be powered from a car's battery (12V) and cost about BP 10? I have seen some even in gas stations but have not checked if their pressure can go up to 250 psi. Can you fill a 9 oz bottle with these? I am asking the forum because you can never get a straight answer from paintball people. They don't improvise and invent as much as people in this forum do.
