ION Battery

So i have had my ion for 2 and half years, It seems every time i leave my battery in it it drains it, Does this happen with all ions or just mine, and another thing is it worth it to by paintball batteries

It will happen to any electronic paintball marker in general. Be sure to take your battery out after each play or be prepared to buy a lot of batteries (depending on how much you play)

Overall I really think it's up to the player and how much they play in order to justify the additional cost for paintball batteries or rechargables. If you play a lot it's probably worth it, but if your an on/off baller. The battery will gradually die off even if left unused so better just to get some good name brand (energizer/duracel) batteries and use them. Typically that's all i have ever used.

Happens with all electronics. If you dont want it to be draining after use unplug the battery. But that would just get annoying to do every time.

I always left my battery in my Ion and during about 1.5 years and over 50 cases, I changed the battery a handful of times. Maybe...5 times at the most and I only changed it once due to the battery being low. The other times I just changed it because I used the battery for so many cases I just changed it to change it.

It happens with all electronics that do not break the circuit when turned off. There is not physical separation of the current, hence over time it is slowly emitting power.

What I did with my halo was got a little switch from radio shack and soldered it in there splitting the wires. I drilled a hole in my shell and stuck the switch there. It's rather nice, even though my halo sucks.

The only thing about rechargeable batteries is that they can sometimes over charge and put out more voltage than the board is able to take. Stick with name brand disposables or purchase high quality, dependable rechargeables.

I kinda already said it, but you can potentially put too much voltage into the board and it will fry.
