first off, take a volt meter and put + to red lead and - to black lead. see what it says. if nothing or close to it then it needs charging. the very first time you should use a resistor to charge it. some require you to recharge it with a resistor if it has been completely drained.

ok, a resistor, Aaron made one but I can't remember what he used to make it, any idea or how much they cost?? what happens if I don't use a resistor, thanks Kenny, hey, did u get ur other D2 yet?? and how about ur Inhumans, email me I have some stuff to talk to you about!!

email the manufaturer or call them and talk to tech support for the proper one.
if i remember i will find mine for the beretta and see what it is.
no i havent been able to get ahold of chris norris yet. i emailed him like 3 times about the d2s. i would of probably bought all of them.
the inhumans are on thier way now. he called and said he was shipping them out but with customs to expect them in maybe 2 weeks.

this is the way i charge caps.... first of all go ahead and ground your cap... next get a test light and hook the test light to +12v and then touch the other end of the test light to the positive post of the cap, if the cap is not charged the light will light up very bright... and then as the cap gets charged the light will get dimmer... this is helpful because you get a visual of when the cap is almost fully charged... hope that helped :D :D :D

yup. dont use resistors.. light bulbs are easier to use.
