Comments about Lobster Sports Lobster Elite Grand V Ltd Edition w/Premuim Charger & Remote:
The machine worked intermittently at first and then the remote stopped working. A new remote and transmitter was sent and I installed it. It worked slowly one day and by the second day it stopped working again. Customer service is currently sending me a new remote/transmitter. This machine has not worked properly since I purchased it. I cannot recommend something that does no work.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My battery gives out after one hour of use (time also spent picking up balls). Is that normal for this machine or do i need another battery. My area has no courts with electric outlets for AC use. What battery is used in this machine? Please advise. Thank you.
Asked on 11/12/2013 by alsal38 from Chula Vista, CA
The Battery life depends on how long the machine was charged and how fast the speed is set for hitting balls. The faster the speed the more energy is used in the battery. If this is not the case, please call us toll free at (866) 860 -1416 to speak with one of our customer service reps in finding an alternative solution.
