Your webmaster loves the Super Charger Power Pak, and it almost seems like cheating to bring this incredibly formidable and versatile blaster on to the battle field. It requires no pumping, and the reservoir is three CPS pressure chambers. But with great power comes great responsibility, and the Power Pak is no exception. This blaster is incredibly fragile, and I think I bought two or three before I had one that didn?t break almost immediately. My Power Pak still works as of 2012, but has a tiny leak coming from the nozzle area. The versatility of this blaster is nearly unlimited, and my Power Pak is primarily used to water flowers, since any water battles are few and far between these days.

The Power Pak is definitely one of the best blasters around, and it?s smallish reservoir is not that much of a disadvantage because refills are quick thanks to the QFD. It is important to note that this blaster can only be refilled via QFD, since the reservoirs are firing chambers. The blaster has four nozzles. The 3x is good for conservation, and if this is your primary nozzle you can battle for a quite a while before it?s time for a refill. The 10x provides serious soakage, but don?t be too zealous, this will drain your Power Pak quick. The shower head nozzle (called saturator) is a personal favorite for close range. The last nozzle is called fan sweep, and this is the nozzle I use to water my plants (not very useful in battle).

Users of the Power Pak have very little to fear except running out of water, so try to be mindful of how much weight is left on your back. A Power Pak user can still be fairly nimble, since the blaster isn?t nearly as heavy as other backpacked blasters like the CPS-3000/3200. This blaster doesn?t have the best range, so some CPS blasters may be able to snipe at you. Most water warriors should call for backup when a Power Pak comes into play, or try to disconnect the QFD.

Pros: So easy to use, it?s almost criminal. Good nozzle selection and no pumping required.
Cons: Users are QFD dependent, these blasters seem very prone to breaking
