ive read somewhere that there is a way to use a regular 9v instead of kingmans 9.6v. is that true? and if so how would i go about doing that?

I'm new to electronic markers, but my local shop assured me that it would work fine, just remember not to try recharging it or you'll blow the battery up.

I was told by my local shop that it will work but you only get about 100 shots out of a reg battery. Not sure if that is true or not have not tried it.

Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. You can try it in a pinch. At slower rates of fire you might get by with it, for a few shots but the 9.6 is what it really needs.

If using a spyder e-marker, use the 9.6 battery that goes with your marker. Although I've never had problems with a regular 9v, that'll help your cause. ;)
You won't have too much success using a regular 9v in your Spyder with a stock board. In my Pilot I was able to use it for a while but with the MR2 it hardly lasted at all. Your best bet is to use the included rechargeable 9.6v.

I have heard some people say that using a 9 will fry the stock board wial others claim that they use them without any problem. I know lots of aftermarket boards will also take the 9 volt. Personaly I would stick with the 9.6. Hope that helps
