i got the gun last weekend, pealed the plastic off the battery and it had a charge, so i mess around a little bit then charged it for 6 hrs, then blasted 500 balls threw.
but my question is theirs no lights to let you know if its charged so should i put it back in the gun, turn it on and let it drain so i know its dead then just charge it before i play?

everytime?

is there a different charger thats has lights or doesnt have to be plugged into the gun?

there are things called smart chargers that turn off when the battery is charged. The lights are not on when it's charging.

The gun will slowly drain the battery dead after 3-4 days without it being turned on. After a day of play I'll let the battery in so it can drain completely. I'll charge it (6-8 hrs.) normally a day or two before I play and take it out so the board can't drain it.

i always thought that buy draining the battery, you will get less shots (or whatever) out of it in the long run.

i left the gun on last night and it drained then i gave it a nice 8 hour charge and took the battery out, so i should be good to go
