    Hey guys I recently kind of... fried my battery on my smart charger and I need to replace it. What would you say would be the cheapest but most effective replacement battery I could get. Should I go lipo? I am using an Golden Eagle M4CQB. The battery doesn't need to fit in the stock I already broke it and I just tape the battery on the outside any ways.

    A 7,4 lipo is no more stressful on the internals than a 9.6 nihm.

    And I agree that hobbyking.com is the best place for batteries.

    I agree on getting a LiPo. Just remember to always take proper care of them (I.E. Don't overcharge, don't puncture or drop them too hard, don't let them overheat). Also, make sure that you charge them with a smart charger for LiPo!

    So here is a battery that should fit inside of your gun.
    http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=84577

    Here is a balance charger, it is slow but safe and works well.

    Here is a LiPo safe bag, recommend one of these.

    And lastly a LiPo low voltage alarm.
    http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=41178

    This is a cheap setup that will prepare you for using LiPos. Do not skip out on any of the items and be safe. Also, the charger is on backorder currently. According to Hobbyking it should be in stock within 14 days. You can place your order now, but it won't ship until the charger is available. You could either wait or get one such as this
    http://www.amazon.com/Tenergy-Balan...8&qid=1452302353&sr=8-5&keywords=lipo+charger
    The whole thing should be around $35-$40 with shipping, but is a great investment.

    Edit: Also, I would put the LiPo inside the stock, duct tape it shut if you have to, but if drop your gun, smack it on something hard, or get it wet, your LiPo will most likely be ruined and possibly catch on fire!

    Well thanks. I will be selling off my extra gear to get these tools. Sadly I have to put it on the out side in order to have use of my stock. but I usually play indoors at combat city and the battery is going to be facing inside firing position so it should be fine. Would you consider though putting too batteries on the outside... like a dual mag battery. I was thinking about it since it seemed like a good Idea if my battery dies. Also what is the likely hood of the field having a lipo smart charger. I have a smart charger but I don't know If It will work for lipo.

    If it is not labeled for lipo, do not use it. Fields usually don't have lipo chargers unfortunately. And for indoor the battery will be fine, maybe put a silicone lipo cover over it (on hobby king). You shouldn't need two batteries, lipos last all day usually

    Get 2 lipos and get a lipo alarm. This prevents the voltage of the battery going under 3.0v.if you dip the battery voltage constantly, drain it and run it to the ground you will have a very nice and toasted gun. A lipo alarm cuts off the power and screams in your ear when the battery reach the volt you set it to. Look it up on hobbyking

    Then you would have to get an NiMH

    The best NIMH option is Elite batteries from eliteairsoftbatteres.com. Find one that will fit your gun and select the correct connector (likely small Tamyia) and you will be good to go.
