Introduction

If your gun is not turning on, the battery might need to be replaced. While working on the Ion, the user should be aware of the pressure due to air inside the gun. Pressurized air can be forceful, causing particles to be ejected from the gun into your eyes and/or skin. When air bubbles enter the bloodstream, they can block blood vessels and cause embolisms. To avoid this, make sure to point the gun in a safe direction when de-gasing the Ion.
