A full charge from flat will take 8-10 hours. Weight 600gm. *nil Shaft NB: For optimum battery life, run fully flat occasionally, and try not to continually over-charge.

Shaft lengths quoted are over-all from prodder body flange to tips. Shafts are made of polycarbonate, an amazing material that will bend incredibly without breaking. If you do manage to break one, replacement is simple and at reasonable cost.
The Blue Hot-Shot (red colour) is the economy prodder in the range. It still has the high quality manufacture and modern features of the 'Green' range, but with a lower power output and shorter battery life. Also, this prodder features the traditional white fibreglass shaft rather than the more flexible red polycarbonate shaft. However, all Hot-Shot shafts and components are compatible with the Blue prodder, and it can even be upgraded with the Green motor if more power is required. Supplied complete with 6 Hot-Shot 'C' batteries.
