View Full Version : Pilot Battery
04-06-2007, 12:47 PM
If I used a rechargeable 9V NiMH battery in my pilot (not the Kingman battery, but a standard 9V rechargeable), would it work? By "work" I mean would it charge in the marker, and last more than a couple hundred rounds?
Anybody tried any rechargeable batteries other than a Kingman / Java battery?

Everyone pretty much agrees that the Kingman frames really do work better with the 9.6v batteries. There is speculation as to whether or not using anything else does any damage, however, it's almost universal that those who try have problems.

As long as its the same "type" and 9.6 V, It will work. I went to a Battery Store and got a exact match, its just made by another manufacturer. Works fine.
But it was the same price as a Kingman Bat. so its really not worth the trouble.

Any 9.6v will work. My friend has trouble with his imagine not working sometimes, he blames the problem on the gun being a spyder. So I take the gun, pull out a 9.6v, pop it in... They thought I was a battery god or something.

a regular 9v doesnt have the power shoot the gun more than 20-30. you need to use a rechargable 9.6v

regular 9v's will not work....i kno from experience, brought only a 9v with me out to play and got about 100 shots and i was done for the day...use a rechargable battery.

a regular 9v doesnt have the power to recock the gun. you need to use a rechargable 9.6v
The gun recocks by air pressure, it has nothing to do with the battery. 9v do work but usually you can only get 20-30 shots off them, if that. Well, in my experience, I should say, 9v's only get 20-30 shots. Just stick with a 9.6v rechargeable battery and you'll be fine. I've used a couple different brands and all the 9.6v batteries that I have used worked fine.
