For people who only load a couple of GBB mags (i.e, most people) I think the plastic one is fine, but when loading stuff with larger reservoirs (like some gas shotguns or 40mm grenades etc) or large amounts of mags, I think that's what killed mine: if i'm loading 40mm shells (7+) or in a pistol/shotgun game (like at the Mill) where I'm loading 7x 1911 mags plus my shotgun which has a pretty big reservoir, there's a considerable amount of frost which has formed on the adapter by the time I'm done -- and this is in summer heat.
Yeah that's probably why. I've been charging only 2 Hi-capa mags. I also wait when charging my mags. Like fill one, load it up with BBs than fill the other one.
But I prefer paying 25$ for my adaptor than having to change my fill valves.
