I finally have my Ion in working condition, sort of. I went outside to test it today and it was shooting one ball then barely cycling until I waited 20 seconds then it would do it again. Whats the problem? I'm already suspecting the battery but would a low battery cause the problem?

Also what should I have for settings? I have that stock board, L6 bolt, and a QEV.

Thanks guys.

A low battery is the #1 most common source for problems on an Ion. It is most likely the battery. Sometimes, boards drain batteries even if the board is off; i usually disconnect mine when I am done playing.

For the settings, set your dwell to about 10. If it does not fully cycle, go up to 12. IT should cycle fully before you reach 15. Then, set your recharge accordingto how fast you want the Ion to shoot.

Here is the cheat sheet for setting your dwell/recharge to maximize efficiency and determine your ROF. Even though many figures are higher than 17, your board is capped to 17 permanently so don't try to go higher.

Oh thanks. I forgot about the cheat sheet.


Edit: I went to set my dwell and found out that it was only on 8ms. It works fine now.
