I have an SP1 with the blackheart board and that board loves to eat batteries. When I put a fresh duracell in before I play by the end of the day it is below 50%

Turn off your marker in between games and contact GOG it should not eat batteries like that.

I usually can my batteries after a day of play anyways, but I don't get out that often.

The Blackheart board eats batteries. Its a good idea to keep a spare with you at the field. Turn off the gun when not on the playing field, and take the battery out of the gun when not at the field.

This.

 

It's so much more improtant than you might think, I had the same problem with my hopper and my marker. Then i started taking out the batteries once i got home and the battries lasted much longer. If your problem persist after trying these thing you should contact GOG and see what they want you to do about it.

This X2

It's always best to disconnect your batteries after gameplay,it will easily double the life of your batteries

Also prevent your board for potential moisture damage if stored for long periods of time

I'm just guessing but believe the capacitor drains batteries even with the markers off

It shouldnt go through batteries that often.  Ive been using the same battery for over a year now, playing a minimum of once a month.

 

You must be dilligent in removing the battery from the marker after playing for the day.  

 

If your playing an all day big game or tourney, it helps to turn off the marker when your in the pits.  In addition to saving battery life, it also acts as a safety in addition to barrel bags.

I remember when I had my Blackhearted G1, and I for the LIFE of me couldn't figure out why it wouldn't shoot the second time I had it out. The little button turned on but no dice. It wasn't until later that I learned from a Ion owner that the BH board still lights up even when it doesn't have enough battery to shoot. Fucked me up righteously lol.
