Yes you'll need to turn your car on, at least that's what I had to do with mine. I recommend you goto Radioshack and purchase a wall adapter so you can just charge in the house. It's part #: 22-501 and can be found at any Radioshack. It is $12.

Your car does not need to be on while you charge the gun. The gun does however, need to be on.

It all depends on your make of car...some cars you can't charge it when the car is off...some you can....mine, you can charge it with the car off...but you wouldn't want to do it for, like, 4 hours cause it would drain your car battery.

When you charge in the house, make sure you plug the adapter into some sort of surge protector. You don't want a power surge killing your gun.

Ok well so far the cars i tried it on dont work, it says that the light is supposed to turn on the charger, but it doesnt. Ill try it on our civic tonight and tell you all how it goes. Just to let you know the cars i tired it on were

97 infinity
87 Camry

I think ill just go to radio shack tonight to pick up the wall adapter and i think they would carry surge protectors there....

RE : gun on/off

It has to be on . otherwise you have broken the link to tha battery. look in the display it´s tells you if you add the charger when it´s off.

well

It would charge in my 2k mustang with the car off, but I bought the wall charger so I can charge my gun in my house instead. You can get them from radio shack or i&i sports.
