whenever i charge mine safety is on. ive had no charging problems as of yet. i don't know what kind of things could cause it to not charge properly.

do you leave it charging all the time? if you do, that is your problem. everytime you charge a battery, it loses its total power it can hold, slowly getting shorter and shorter charges. if you eave it plugged in all the time, it simply charges and then begins to drain.

turn the gun off, then charge it. if the battery is completely drained it takes i think about 16 hours, but it should get a good charge off about 6-8. buy 2 batteries, charge one full, then take it out and put a wide rubber band around it so it goes across both connections. then plug in the other one and use it.

Well, I have a charger that detects when the batteries are cahrged and stops charging them then, very usefull, because I can also charge two 9 volts in it at the same time.
