Charged it up, turned it on, and was very pleasantly surprised to note that it is really quiet, even though it puts out a serious stream of air from the discharge port! It uses a small squirrel-cage impeller, rather than the axial/centrifugal impellers in the ones some of us have cobbled together...this one makes very little noise at all. Inserts and removes very easily from the magwell on my 450b. Plastic casing is fairly heavy gauge stuff, and I don't think durability will be an issue in regard to multiple insertions/removals in regard to the mag release cutout. Has an automatic cutoff wall-wart charger which works reasonably quickly. The blower has now been running the better part of three hours, and is still going strong. Overall I'd have to say that Caldwell has come up with a winner with this unit! Me happy.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that it also has a bright blue LED in the air duct, pointing up towards the chamber....no idea what that's supposed to do, but its there.
