Meh... a lot (I don't know the exact #). I'd just keep battery in your gun, and have one as a backup. So if your batterie does die, you can still play.

Here is what WAS says on the subject:

What is the minimum battery voltage for Wicked Air Sportz boards?

The low battery warning indicator (LED flashing red repeatedly) will start at 6.7 volts. Technically, the battery voltage can be as low as 6.2 volts and still operate the electronics correctly. In testing, we have found that more than 450,000 shots can be expected out of a good quality 9 volt battery.


Can I use rechargeable batteries?

NO! Rechargeable batteries should never be used in any device designed for paintball! The best rechargeable battery has a maximum current output of 175ma. A regular alkaline battery's capacity is 550ma.  Solenoids used in paintball markers draw in excess of 1 amp of current during the first few milliseconds, afterwhich have a holding current of approximately 375ma. NONE of the rechargeable batteries have sufficient current output capabilities resulting in improper operation (severe consistency and velocity issues). Batteries with a voltage in excess of 9 volts (such as the popular 9.6v types) could damage the Equalizer board and void the warranty.

I think he was asking about the stock board....  I haven't drained my second battery yet but I'm on my second bag of paint and haven't been doing a lot of constant clicking....   I agree with Kawasaki...  Just bring a spare just in case...
Don't hate the player...
Hate the game.
