    my battery charger that came with gun has a port on the side with 4 pins.   My battery has 3 pins.  you can slide all way to left and hook it up or all the way to right to hook it up.  What is correct?  Use the first 3 pins or last 3 pins?

    All the way to the left.

    It will charge either way. I prefer to have cell 1 and cell 2 lights on charge. Hope this helps. You are going to love your new rifle if you don’t already. 

     

    So far, my red ? is the most accurate and consistent airgun I have ever shot.

    I have the same doubt about wich was the correct setup for charging, searching on internet found that saids that the black cable on your battery connector must match the negative pin on the universal charger. That's the correct way. Hope it helps

    I don't think left gets you both cells charged. Both lights are on when you plug it to the right side. I have charged mine 3 times now and always from the right with both cells showing being charged. My first charge I used the gun till the display said low battery. That went away after charging to the right. There is a you tube video of some Brits complaining about the charger and how you can only charge one cell if you plug the battery into the wrong side. I wish there was more instruction on the charger, even a simple letter drafted up by Daystate telling you some simple steps would have been better than nothing.

    "Left" with the charger supplied with my rifle, definitely charges both cells.  I have put over 7,000 pellets through the rifle since receiving it in May.  If the battery was not charging both cells, certainly one cell would be discharged by now.  Next time I charge the battery, I will check both cell voltages with a volt meter.

    It is a nice rifle for certain, but the battery arrangement just doesn't seem very well thought out IMO. Not including specific charging instructions seems outrageous, again just my opinion.

    I can't be alone in thinking that this was a rush to market in time for the big show and there will be an improved design with a proper charging port coming out in the future.

    The lack of charging instructions is certainly a big omission, but the battery pack and charger included with the rifle are more than adequate for the intended use.  The battery last thousands of rounds between chargers and to charge the battery a person just needs to open the battery compartment door, disconnect the battery pack and plug the battery connector into the charger.  There is no need to remove the battery pack from the rifle during the charge process.  It is all quite simple after the first time or so.

    I guess in some aspects Hawkeye you are probably spot on. Get it done and out the door. But when I take a step back and I am no battery expert at all, what would I want to see for a battery? Some fancy OEM Daystate proprietary battery that can only be found sitting next to a yeti and costs whatever Daystate wants to steal from us. Or maybe a hobby battery that costs under 20 bucks and can be found anywhere. Trust me I'm not down playing how pissed I was when I received my gun and the charger was lacking any instructions and the adapter as well for USA power outlets. With how popular this gun has become in such short time I'm sure Daystate will make adjustments and add options. 2019 will be another drain the account year I'm sure.

    "what would I want to see for a battery? Some fancy OEM Daystate proprietary battery that can only be found sitting next to a yeti and costs whatever Daystate wants to steal from us. Or maybe a hobby battery that costs under 20 bucks and can be found anywhere."

    is what gave me the extra push to purchase the Red Wolf.  A ubiquitous battery that can be found at many places across the US.  Similar thinking to that used when choosing a centerfire rifle for use at multiple locations in he US.  The availability of 30.06 or 30-30 ammo at any hardware store in the US is amazing.
