Exclamation Help Gun Not Shooting

Hi, I bought a spyder electra about 3-4 weeks ago, took it out to a speedball game and it worked perfect. loved it. no big deal.

today i hooked it up to go shoot a bit, screw in the tank, put the barrel on, put the hopper on, filled the hopper, turned the gun on, turned the hopper on, walked outside. I shot a few rounds off on semi auto, then switched to ramping for some fun, shot about 5 rounds off and it started making this clicking noise that i hear when i practice my ramping inside with nothin on it.
I've only heard this noise twice:
1. ran out of air- checked that. i have 2.5 PSI
2. my hopper wasnt feeding.
3. practicing inside with no air

another weird thing was that if i kept pulling down on the trigger it would shoot every 10-15 pulls.. very odd. as if the air pressure had to build up inside the gun before it would shoot.

sounds like a battery issue. charge or replace the battery and report back.

no problem. a lot of strange issues can be solved by replacing batteries. always do that first, then mover on to more complicated solutions

a multi-meter helped me figure out things even more quickly. And it REALLY saved me when my car radio wires didn't match up with the adapter they sent me. What a disaster that was.

Yes. Most Spyders are designed around using 9.6v not 9v, I believe the Electra still was (definitely was if it was an ORIGINAL Electra).

It works on 9v but would a 9.6volt be practical?

Don't buy the Spyder one though. They're only 170 MAh, you can get a good 9.6V 230 MAh rechargeable NiMH for like $1 more.
