I just got my SPyder RSX. Okay i put the rechargeable battery in the gun... i understand the board needs to be turned off to be charged... i did that... now it says when you plug the cord in the back of the gun... the LED lights should be Red on the gun which means Charging... well the LED lights are not Lighten up RED OR GREEN... its just showing its off... :confused:
The LED lights work on the gun when i turn on the gun but not when its charging??

is that a problem? cause i cant tell if its charging or not. Its not showing me Red or Green LED lights... Help!

The Charger itself isn't lighting up either... so does this mean that my outlet isnt giving enought power to the Charger to charge my gun??????

You can use any 9.6V battery. Are you sure the charger is working? Double check it, and if not, call Kingman up and complain (mildly, in the sense that it is an issue, not in the mannerism) about the charger being dead and ask for a new one.

That's how it's designed, so I'd assume so. That puts a scowl on my face, though. The grips might just be needed to hold the charging connector to the board. When it's done charging AND you disconnect it, carefully take a peek but don't touch nothing. Make sure the leads for the battery charger's connector is fully attached. Also, check the battery line's plastic connector to the board. Make sure that's fully plugged in as well as everything else.

You know what, K-Rep? I'm going to add number to my phone now. I keep forgetting it's 888 not 800.
