Battery experts, check this.

Hey guys. I bought a TM Mp5 today, and got the Pirahna Digital Peak Charger and a 7.2V 1500mah battery. (Ew, I know. 7.2V).

I bought the gun used, and it was firing nicely, and all of a sudden it stops firing. When I pull the trigger, I can hear the gearbox try to cycle. (Sounds exactly like when you pull the trigger of the gun when then battery is dead.).

The seller tells me to charge the battery. (Even though my multimeter says it has 60% life, but I know as batteries lose life, they also lose voltage.)

Now, I tried the battery again. Without it charged, just to see whats what.

If I pull the trigger, the problem above happens. BUT, heres the catch. The wires coming from the gun to the connector, are getting HOT. The wires coming from the connector to the battery are slightly warm.

Whats the deal here?

I'm currently charging the battery now.
Currently modding AK.

Loadout 1:
Yugoslavian M76/Maadi RML Alternative (Kraken)
CYMA Glock 18C

Loadout 2:
TM MP5 w/ flashlight
CYMA Glock 18C

Both Loadouts have Marpat Uniform, PASGT Helmet w/ Flecktarn, and Flecktarn chest rig.
