We understand how crucial it is to have an ample supply of air during your action-packed paintball sessions. Running out of air in the heat of the battle can be a real game-changer! To help you keep tabs on your air supply and plan accordingly, we’re thrilled to introduce our brand-new feature – the CO2/HPA Tank Lifespan Calculator!
Our tool is here to revolutionise how you manage your air supply. Let’s delve into the nuts and bolts of this handy calculator.

How It Works
The CO2/HPA Tank Lifespan Calculator is a godsend for any paintball player. It provides an estimate of how long your CO2 or High Pressure Air (HPA) tank will last during a game. This estimation can help you plan your game more effectively and never run out of air mid-game.
Inputs You’ll Need
Our calculator requires several inputs from you:
- Tank Size: You’ll need to input the size of your tank in cubic inches for HPA or ounces for CO2. The typical sizes for CO2 tanks are 9, 12, 20, and 24 ounces, while HPA tanks often come in 48, 68, or 88 cubic inch sizes.
- Marker Efficiency: This refers to the number of shots you can get per tank. The efficiency of a paintball marker can vary widely, and this factor significantly impacts the lifespan of your air supply.
- Rate of Fire: How fast you fire your marker will greatly impact how quickly you deplete your air source. You will need to input this in shots per second.
How the Calculation Works
With the above information, the calculator will estimate how long your tank will last. The basic calculation uses this complex code:
- For CO2: [(Tank size in ounces * Shots per ounce) / Shots per second] / 60 = Lifespan in minutes
- For HPA: [(Tank size in cubic inches * Shots per cubic inch) / Shots per second] / 60 = Lifespan in minutes
See It in Action
These are rough estimates, and actual performance can vary based on several factors such as temperature, marker condition, and the type of paintballs used. So, keep in mind that our calculator provides an approximation to help you plan better!
Now, without further ado, why not try our new CO2/HPA Tank Lifespan Calculator for yourself? Input your tank size, marker efficiency, and rate of fire to discover how long your air supply might last. You’ll find the estimated lifespan displayed in minutes. Experiment with different inputs and see how they affect the lifespan of your air supply. Knowledge is power in the paintball battlefield, after all!
We’re sure our new CO2/HPA Tank Lifespan Calculator will help you elevate your paintball gaming strategy. Remember, the tool is for guidance and the real-life results may vary. Don’t forget to check your air supply regularly!
Now go forth, paintball warriors, and may your air supply always be plentiful! Happy gaming!
