I was curious as to how hard it is to make the 9v. mod to use in the Halo or Empire B hoppers. If someone could walk me through it from start to finish that would be great. Thanks!

you could just disconnect the double aa battery pack and run a single 9v

just buy a pack of 9v connectors, its like $5 for 5 of them at radioshack
and follow this diagram,

and solder and heat shrink the points together, its a simple mod and can be done with electrical tape if you can't solder

Oh, didn't know it was that simple. Out of curiosity, why does black go to red and red to black?

Because when the adapter gets clipped in, power is going to be reversed. Those aren't designed to be plugged into each other, which is why its backwards. Luckily, backpowering the board doesn't fry it ( or at least it didn't fry mine ..)
