I have a few of the Hobbit rectifiers, not Express. Let me know if you want one.

oh yeah i definitely need one my sis wrecked my car & my hobbit is alot cheaper to fix..

Well the big difference is that the Early Hobbits didn't have batteries and the Expressi all had batteries.

I THINK they should interchange but I am not 100% on that.
