Well, the charger in my Electra's handle actually snapped off... Supposedly "LNIB" when I bought it, but Spyder will fix it for free.

I use regular 9V batteries, and they work fine. They don't last too long, though. Change them regularly, like after a case of paint has been shot through it.

You can get rechargeable 9.6V replacements. Any PB site should have them.

no, unless i'm mistaken 9 volts and 9.6 volts are always interchangable

I think he was referring to the entire trigger frame. Running the wrong voltage level through a circuit board can have frustrating results.

You can probably get away with using fresh, high quality 9 volt disposable batteries, buy a rechargeable battery from Kingman, or find it from somewhere here:

I just want to know, not trying to be mean or anything, but why would you think somthing with less voltage, although small, would mess up your gun? A 9v and 9.6v batery will last the same, and will perform the same.

I never said that lower voltage would damage it. I said running the wrong voltage could cause harm.

well, this is the newbie forum so maybe he just wanted to ask before he did something he was unsure of.

... and don't get me going on batteries. i run radio controlled 4x4's so i'm a self proclaimed expert on batteries

In my electro, a 9.6v works great, but a 9v will not cycle at all.

Often, electros do not use voltage regulators, so a change in voltage changes dwell time, which can have an effect on blowbacks since the solenoid directly engages the sear. If volatge is below a threshhold, there is not enough dwell to release the hammer.

But that aside, if someone put a charger on a gun with a 9v NON-RECHARABLE, it could certaintly do some damage if it hot really hot and melted the wires, or vented battery acid onto the board, etc.

Try a 9v Lithium Polymer battery, you'll get much better life out of them.

9vt might work, but a regular rechargeable 9volt will not, when rechargeable batterys are charged they often dont have the full voltage, ex: instead of the 1.6 volts a AA normally has, it may only have 1.45.
