    A 7.4 volt li-po should be safe for a stock gun, an 11.1 volt li-po or similar voltage ni-mh battery may damage internal components.

    +1 to what Lefse said. I only wanted to add that you need a lipo balance charger for a lipo battery. You can't use a standard NiMH charger for lipo batteries. You also don't want to discharge a 7.4v lipo battery to below 6v or you will likely damage it.
