Pilot Battery?
 
My battery seems to turn red fast... is there anything I can do to make it last longer or another better battery?

Are you using the stock 9.6v rechargeable battery? and if you are, are you giving a full charge (14 hours)?

Did you charge the battery more than, i believe 7 hours? im not certain, but that would mess it up. id call kingman and get it replaced, you should be under warranty

I've used my battery twice and it won't hold a charge for more that 10 shots anymore. So i was wondering if something was wrong with the charger or the battery or the bord.

how long did you charge it the first time or did you shoot it straight out of the box
if you dont charge it for 14 hours straiht out the box it wont hold a full charge

Everything you need to know about the three most common types of rechargeable batteries. These are just general guidlines for battery usage, but they will help prolong the life of your battery. Though it sounds like you should contact Kingman about this issue.

I charged it for about 10 hours (overnight) then used it then charged it again for the same time. After the third time it would hold the charge.
