Smile WL Arctic Series III Battery issue

So I received my Wicked Laser Arctic Series 3 in the post on tuesday, and I am fairly impressed, Quality was alot better than I thought it was going to be

As soon as I got it I popped the battery on charge ready for wednesday (My day-off) had a play on wednesday and used it for about 20 minutes which used basically all the battery juice (a little disappointing).

Today I put the battery on charge before leaving for work at 6am finish work at 5pm as soon as I get it I put the battery back into the host to have a little play and bam no beam at all, I think great the diode has expired already but then decide to check what voltage the battery is give out to see if its the 'cheepy' battery and it is giving out 0.09 watts

Would you say the battery is knackered?

If you let the battery run low, below 2.5volts, you could damage the diode or the driver.
See my sig for suggestions for your Arctic.

Bad battery or not, he can get something better instead. The battery issue is just a microcosm for the entire product.

Oh yes, definitely, he just seemed to ration it weirdly. "My battery sucks so I'll sell the laser."

What I'm going to do is buy new batteries then agree a price and time with a buyer on here then I'll pop it on eBay as WL laser then the buyer can buy straight away (before it gets removed) then pay using paypal for safety.

Then who ever buys it has my eBay name etc and it will show I'm a trusted seller because I have very few posts not many people will trust me but my eBay has over 200 100% positive feedback

Yeah, huh?
I think M4TT wants to get rid of his arctic, but wants to get rid of it (sell it on eGay) with a working battery, rather than the crappy battery that was shipped with it.

i think i translated that rubble into " i am new here. i am probably untrusted here. i will get new batteries and let ppl here know it is on ebay. it will sell fast on ebay before it gets removed from ebay. i am not trusted here but if i tell ppl here it is on ebay they will buy it on ebay because i have positive feed back on ebay.
