battery

Replaced to board yesterday on my demon and now the battery still shows 53% charge after charging for 9 hours. Does it usually take that long to fully charge a discharged battery or I'd my battery going bad?

Good be either a bad battery or charger. Try charging from a different USB charger. I use my iPhone charger.

Get us a pic of the Charger you are using. I would use a charger rated 3v to 5v OR plug it into your Desktop or Laptop USB port. They are rated 3v-5v depending on what is plugged in (They self adjust).

My battery took about 3 Hours to fully Charge.

I though this lithium ion batteries are supposed to last longer. On a full charge( 92-100%) after a day of play I'm down to about 66% then battery completely depleted after 2 days. Is this right?

Almost everything you hear about batteries in the industry is a half truth in my experience. It's like mileage on vehicles lol.

The battery will normally die after time but two days isn`t right. My creed lasts about a month if I don`t use it.

If you use the cable that came with your gun it should take an hour for full charge. You may have another issue.

Well now that you got the charge higher using the Ipad charger, go back to your regular charger that came with the gun and see what happens. It should only take a hour or two using that. I have no clue what's going on to be honest. It's almost like you have a constant drain somewhere.

This happens to all my markers ( 2 creeds and 2 demons). Charge for only one to two hours only. The longer you leave it charging the more the battery will drain

My creeds that ive had, i dont use fast charges, they charge quickly but seem to not hold the charge very long, typically a month and a half. If i slow charged it take about 12 hours, it would last me all season. Its the same with all rechargeables, Ni-mh, Li-pol and Li-ion all have different charge times, depending on size, but also you got to be careful of the voltage of each charger and the amps. You can damage your batteries with the wrong chargers. Just stick to charging from your PC on a slow charge. It will last you months. Very very slim chance of damaging the battery. Also these batteries you dont want to leave on a charger and forget about them. Charge them, once they hit full take it off unless you have a smart charger that knows when the battery is full and it stops charging.. Leaving the battery plugged into the gun also slowly discharges the battery over time. Same with alkalines.

do some research on differences of batteries and how to maintain a recharge.
