battery?

I've been having some weird problem with my battery...when i turn my gun off and store it for the week, its like its still on. Something is draining the battery and it takes forever to charge. Could i switch out the rechargeable battery for a 9v to just make it easy? Or does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? I know its not my charger or the battery itself.

It very likely IS the battery itself.

no, ive changed it out with 2 others, the demon's spare battery, and my creed's battery, which are exactly the same.

Do you have access to a different board? Try charging your battery with your buddy's creed. If the battery charges fine with his Creed, then you may have a bad board or usb port on the board.

Also, a lot of lithium batteries lose their charge rapidly when not being used. I use, they last a long time, but when sitting, they drain relatively quickly.

And no, I don't think a 9v is a viable solution as the 9v is not the same voltage as the Lithium, and it will not fit within the grip frame.

i have a creed too, and that board works just fine...would it be alright to just switch it over? i know they're the same board. but the creed's board is the first gen, green board. so it may be a little downgrade to whatever they put into the newer red boards.
