Default Checking Battery

Hi I bought a used Pilot ACS and I left the battery charging all night thursday, because i was leaving town friday right after work and could not pass by my house, i unplugged it, the thusday i left it to charge all day (8:30 to 5), went to try out the gun, worked fine for around 50 rounds with the battery indicator flashing every couple of shots. After these 50 rounds the gun would fire 2-3 shots then click, then shoots 1-3 shots then clicks...so i gave up...should i be charging the battery differently?

The marker was off while charging.

The marker was charged in two intervals: 8hours last thursday night and 8h30 to five yesterday.

Is there any way to check that? i mean, is there anyway to check if the battery is bad without buying a new one?

not really. if its a green battery, its an older one, red is newer. another possibility could be that the board or charger is messed up.

ok, since we're on batteries... i havent played in forever, so dont judge my noob questions, i forgot almost everything. lol ok...

i charged my pilot monday nite, if i only turned it one 2 times and clicked it a few times to check it, shuld it be gud for all day saturday (assuming its a good batt.)?

and if something goes wrong on saturday and my batt. dies, will i b able to stick a normal Duracell 9v in? without damage to the board n stuff?

sorry, i know this stuff has prolly been asked before, but we were on the topic of batteries, and i dnt have the time to search it tonight.
