Default 06 Electra Battery Draining

My 06 electra is draining the battery with the power off. At first I thought it just wasn't charging but it is fine unless it sits for a few days then it will be completely dead. Any other electra owners having this problem and do any Kingman employees ever read these forums?

Yea mine does the same thing. Called Kingman about it and got a B-S answer about charging the battery to long. None of my other Kingman markers had this problem. Think it has something to do with the eyes or maybe the board itself. It's really not a big problem for me-I just wanted an answer and didn't get it.

Im not having that problem, although i can suggest that you go to your local paintball shop, and purchase a new battery (NOT A STANDARD 9V!!!!!) and see if that does anything, if not, its probobly in the board.

Wait!!, did you charge it completly when you got it, or did you just throw it in your gun after it had been on the charger for awhile, or not at all, cuz that can ruin it for the rest of its use.

Ok I figured out what the problem is. I hooked an amp meter up and it is drawing 2.8ma of current all the time even with the gun off. At that rate it should die in about 2.5 days which is pretty close to whats been happening. I hooked the meter up to my Spyder Pilot just to test and there was no draw at all.

Looks like it is definitely the board, I'll have to get kingman to replace it.

Were You Able To Get That Board Replaced By Kingman Because I Have The Same Problem And They Gave Me The Same Bs.

but if it's the newer board with eyes, the new board may not be compatible with eyes...

Why would I up the board on a brand new gun that already has eyes and can shoot 30bps?

Well one thing I have been doing is disconnect the battery when not in use. And when you are going to use it, charge the battery the night before. Disconnect after its charged. And reconnect before you hit the field. Its a pain to have to do that. But its even more of a pain to send it in and be without the gun for a while.
