GEL BLASTERS INFORMATION AND FAQ’S
Aussie Hobbies recommends you:
- When transporting your Gel blaster, it is recommended that you keep it concealed in a lockable bag, case or container. Only transport your Gel Blaster as necessary (to an organised event for example)
- It is an offence to take your Gel Blaster out in public as this may cause alarm. This offence carries a fine and/or jail time. Gel Blasters are for use in a controlled environment only.
- Please Do Not Shoot Animals
- Please Do Not Shoot People unexpectedly! Allow people time to equip personal protective gear (eye goggles for example)
- Ensure you wear suitable eye protection when using your Gel Blaster.
- Do not leave your battery charging at home unattended
- Be sure to charge your battery for a maximum of four (4) hours. The charger will flash red whilst charging and a solid green when charging is completed.
- Only load your Gel Blaster with Gel Balls when you plan on using it.
- Load your Gel Balls through the latch on the side or top of the magazine. Make sure you empty out all of the water before loading the Gel Balls as water can damage the magazine internals and void the warranty.
- Always detach the magazine and battery from your Gel Blaster when not in use
- Please don’t leave Gel Balls in your magazine as they will shrink and jam the Gel Blaster.
- When you are finished using your Gel Blaster, remember to empty your magazine of all Gels (if you haven’t already – always good to check), shoot out any that might be stuck in your blasters barrel.
- Do not put dehydrated Gel Balls into your magazine or Blaster. This may cause harm to the Gel Blaster. They need to be soaked in distilled water.

Gel Blaster FAQ’S
Q: Do I need to have a license to own a Gel Blaster?
A: No, you do not need a license to own a Gel Blaster BUT you do need to be a member of a Gel Ball Association. Aussie Hobbies Legally imports Gel Blasters using the necessary import permits.
Q: What is a Gel Blaster?
A: Gel Blasters are replica toys that are powered with a battery. They shoot non- toxic Gel Balls that explode on impact into small pieces that dissipate after a short time. The Gel Balls do not harm the environment.
Q: Can I upgrade or modify my Gel Blaster at Aussie Hobbies?
A: No sorry, Aussie Hobbies does not offer upgrades or modifications to internal or external parts of the Gel Blaster.
Q: My Gel Blaster is jammed. What should I do?
A: Gel Blasters jamming in not uncommon. Because it is a toy jams happen but one of the main reasons is the Gel Balls. There are sizing differences with the current Gel Balls available to buy which can cause the jam or maybe your Gels are too soft. Try cleaning all the Gels out of your Blaster, hydrate a fresh batch of Gels following the recommendations for hydrating your Gels. Be sure to drain all the water from your Gels and load them into the magazine till full and retry firing to see if the problem has been fixed.
If your Gel Blaster keeps jamming and you feel the problem could be related to the Gel Blaster, then please read and follow our refund/returns policy.

In the video please demonstrate the steps you go through from the start to the actual firing of the Gel Balls from your Blaster. Include a demonstration of the removal of the magazine after use to see if any Gels fall out. Once Aussie Hobbies technical staff has reviewed the video and your written description, we will then advise you of our course of action.
