11 volts, Id say its a little high. It'll give you some crazy rate of fire.
Maybe shred some piston teeth, maybe not. Maybe chew up some gear teeth, maybe not.

You can ask that kind of question on a new tread, as it does not bring anything to the FAQ.

But yes you coud use it. I am running a 12v (11.1v) in almost all my guns, sofar, the pistons are holding perfectly.

Good guide/FAQ. I use a 9.6V 1700 MaH and I get a good rate of fire and it lasts the whole day. If you are looking for a good battery, get one like mine.

Just to make sure, I have a FireFox 11.1V 1600mAh 15C Li-Po battery and a FireFox 12.6V 1A Li-ion Charger. So you're saying that it should be fully charged in an hour? Also, I think I did something really bad because I charged it for about 8 hours for the first time and also used my TM Battery Discharger to discharge it completely after I was done using it. I have not charged the battery since the first time, so should I scrap it and get a new one?

Li-Po's should not be discharged, especially not down to nothing.

Throw it out at a hazardous waste place.

So is the suggested time of charging any Li-Po battery fully is 1 hour? Can I play a full days worth of gaming if I charge it for only 1 hour?

I'd only use a lipo charger WITH auto cut off. Mine takes about an hour, maybe slightly longer but it stops itself. And SHOULD last a full game day... though I haven't gamed with mine yet but i plink allot in my basement and it's lasted many oh days with one charge.

To give my input:

I had a 7.4v 20C 1600mah lipo in my M4 with a Magnum Motor/Hi Torque Gears/380fps spring, and I lasted two 4 hour games at TTAC3, and a 6 hour game at FlagRaiders before charging: Sure, the battery was low, but still above the over discharge limit. I do not run a disconnect circuit, but I suggest that you should, it's less of a safety hazard and more about protecting the battery.

Question Ni-Cd Charger for Ni-Mh?

ok guys I need help here..

I bought an airsoft with a Ni-Cd battery but its cheap so I want to buy a Ni-Mh, the problem is I don't know if my actual charger(black square thing,wall power supply) will be good to charge my Ni-Mh.. I read on the charger but its not written if its a Ni-Cd or Ni-Mh charger.. here what its says:

Class 2 power supply

Model:YXD08402501-18

INPUT: 120V AC 60Hz 90 mA

OUTPUT: 8.4V DC 250mA

C UL US

so do you think it will charge an Ni-Mh battery(same voltage 8.4v)?

That's not really a charger.. just a transformer.

Get the NPT Smart Charger from www.bbbastard.com
