I also got a smart charger, not the most expensive, but not the cheapest. It has the auto-stop-charging function with trickle charging ... I shot about 500 rounds in full-auto (bursts).. and then the motor was getting slow... there is no reaction once I hit the trigger... anyone have a clue what the problem may be? I switched from auto to semi with no results as well...

They both finished charging after about 1 hour, I left one on the charger and used the other.. is it normal for brand new guns to maybe heat up too fast? or jam?
I bought a "cheap" smart charger as well, and with mine it will stop charging (or look like its done) after 60 or 90 minutes.. I just have to unplug my battery and plug it back in to see if it needs to charge more.. if it goes to looking "done" right away, then it should be charged.
