H2 which probably means HPA so they are the same thing. Yes the elctra will work with HPA.

I think you mean CO2 and HPA are different. HPA can be used and it helps it a little.

you mean N2. yes n2 works the same way as hpa and the tanks are interchangeable for both N2 and hpa.

H2 would either be a Hummer or Hydrogen and they don't use either to run paintball markers. Like Oscum said its probably N2, nitrogen, which you hardly see anybody use anymore to fill talks. Most just use compressed air.

Yeah. If you actually had H2, it'd be pretty dangerous, lol.

N2 and HPA are both inert gases that can be compressed to high levels without liquidizing, potentially an HPA tank could be filled with other inert gasses and work just as well, you could use argon for instance, but thats impractical when we have air all around us just waiting to be compressed.

N2 will not operate your Electra without modification. (N2 has a different density and would require marker spring re-tuning) I have never seen anyone who was actually filling HPA tanks with N2 anyway so no worries! Compressed Air will work perfectally without modification.

Been a while since I've used my electra, but from what I recall, I was able to get a few more shots in with my 48/3000 HPA tank than I did a 20oz CO2 tank. Besides HPA is more readily available in most places. I know some shops only fill with CO2 still... but I think that's mainly in the middle of no where kind of places.
