    I charged my battery 3 days ago I shot about 200 bbs when I got it today is the 3rd day and I haven't charged it and it still has alota juice left. I plan on playing at a arena today should I charge my gun again? I don't want to over charge it because it will ruin my battery! So how do you know when to charge the battery?

    Like I said bro. When your shooting and you start to see that the gun isn't shooting as fast

    + 1. with a standard charger it's hard to know how long you should charge it for because you don't know how much battery life it has left. Some smart chargers also have a discharge>charge function is what you should use. If you constintly charge it from half full or 3/4 or not dead it will eventually loose memory and not hold as much of a charge.

    Yep get a smart charger- one of the best airsoft items you can invest in if you have an aeg.

    I have one aswell. The only problem (not really problem just an accident haha) I had was that my little brother ripped off the tamiya connector on the mini-type side so now I have to get an adaptor with my next AEG purchase. But other than that it was a great charger especially for only $15

    Actually my connector isn't on very well either, I think I am going to solder it soon. Now I just need solder........

    That's what I was thinking of doing but I couldn't, due to lack of a soldering iron and soldering experience haha

    Definatley agree with everyone else. You need to invest in a smart charger. Make sure it fits your batteries needs as most smart chargers are very specific to the battery they tend do (i.e. LIPO batteries have lipo charger, etc, etc). I bought mine from hobbyking and it works like a champ.
