Battery problem

For xmas i got a 9volt recharge kit. It is made by energizer. The batteries are high-energy NiMH. I charged the up completely and stuck them in the eblade and it reads flat. Is this a problem with the actual sensor that reads battery power left or is it the battery. I was thinking that maybe the eblade cant tell if NiMH are charged or not so it just reads flat.

first, look at the battery and tell me what voltage the battery is. if it is high above 10 volts, you may have caused a problem. if it is far below 9 v then you just have rechargeable batteries that suck. most 9 volts (including all geberic unrechargeables you buy in stores) are actually below 9 volts. if your batteries only charge to a certain voltage below (say 7.8) because of your charger, your gun could read flat.

This all being said because i know nothing of these batteries.

I hope the rechargables that you're using aren't Energizers. I made the mistake of buying a handful of them to later find out that they are worthless. Those are rated @ 7.2v-150 mAh

hey, my gun still has 3 bars, but it's not even strong enough to push the solenoid. What's going on ?

Read my post in the thread you made, that'll solve it.
