Good to see that XP are continually revising products based off customer feedback, I think this is the second design revision from the original charging clip so far.  Probably the biggest pain was the tight fitment to the newer HF coils, and that often led to broken clips when trying to squeeze them over what seemed to be a wider skid plate.  

Another factor was the sheer amount of third party sources that were supplying stronger computer printed charging clips, good incentive for XP to re-engineer the clip.

I believe I got one with my new ORX. Seems like a stronger plastic was used. Less flexible. Otherwise seems the exact same as the one I got wth my older deus. Think I actually like the older one better. It flexes better and is easier to put on. To bad they don't make a connector that would work on the new style batteries. One that plugs into the battery directly itself. Then you would be able to charge your extra batteries without actually plugging it into a coil. That would be handy.

Unlike the HF coils, the new x35 coils do not have external batteries so they must use the coil charging clip as the only option.

Thanks Chase didn't know that. Haven't had my hands on a x35 coil yet. Wonder why they changed back? Well at least can use them with the little block now to center the shaft.

Check out Detecting Doodads.  He makes 3D printed accessories including a sturdy Deus charging clip.  Not inexpensive though.

Thanks for the tip Chase, cool site he has. His prices are pretty fair actually since the printing seems to be on an fdm (MakerBot) type printer which tend to be fairly slow. Those printers make very durable parts. Alternatively an SLS might be better and quicker but come with a heavier price tag so the part price is probably much more. I personally use an SLA (resin based printer) but the parts are more suitable for masters that I use for mold making as they are not that durable for any extended use.

      Since early August, XP have started selling the ORX with the 9" and 11" X35 coils as a stock option for less than $700. The package deal comes with the wired back headphones. Some online dealers that have these in stock are selling this bundle for substantially less than the lowest advertised price or adding in incentives if you ask. Personally, I never enjoyed using the ORX wireless back phones. I have a really big head and those headphones hurt enough to distract me after about 45 minutes no matter what I did. If you are looking at an ORX and the great all purpose frequencies provided on the X35 coils now would be a good time to investigate these deals.

      Want to know if it will fit inside my camo duffle backpack and don’t want to have to fit the coil on  at the site of use. Could somebody measure this?
      thanks

      I’m a Relic hunting for coins and thinking about getting the HF Elliptical coil to hunt with. I have the ORX with the the HF 9” round coil but thinking about trying the elliptical one .
      Like to hear from anyone who may have used it for coin hunting..
       Thanks ahead of time.

      I’ve been a long time lover of small coils hunting a new location for the first time. 
       I’m wondering why none are being made . It could be I’m the first that ask for one . I don’t look to find it at my door anytime soon.
       All the relic hunters and one coin hunter in the bunch I can see why I’m sucking hind teat.
