    Hey guys, I bought a JG G36c in May of this year and I wanted to know if it is Lipo ready? And also what 9.6v NiMh battery can fit?

    All airsoft guns are "lipo ready" it is just a gimmick to increase sales. Although all guns can use a lipo, the question is how long will the gun last. I do not recommend using any lipo above a 7.4v in a stock gun. 11.1v lipo should really be used in a tuned up AEG that has had a good shimming, corrected AOE and is wired to deans connectors.

    I bought the jg r36c (not much of a difference) and I Bought the vb 9.6v mini batter and it fits perfectly. I'm not sure about it being lipo ready though.

    I'd also say a mosfet would be advisable with an 11.1

    Also a MOSFET is recommended if you want to use a 11.4v lipo.

    If you don't care about 3 round burst or dont want to pay tons of money. You can make one yourself for under $10

    Correct me if I'm wrong everyone but I thought the JG came with a MOSFET. Albeit not a good MOSFET, you'll do just fine with a 7.4v lipo. You will have to upgrade to better MOSFET in order to not kill your trigger contacts if you use a lipo any higher than 7.4v.

    Yes. 7.4v LiPo is good. You can fit a 7.4v 20c 2000 mAh in a G36 handguard and still have room.

    If you don't mind waiting up to a month, hobbyking.com has great prices for lipo batteries.

    All of them are under $10, but remember, with lipos you have to charge them with a special charger, so make sure you get that too.

    You can't charge LiPo's with a smart charger. LiPo's use a balance charger that connects to seperate leads coming off the battery that are configured to charge each cell individually.

    This.
    Using that charger with a lipo is extremely dangerous, dont do it.

    Without a mosfet, as las the gun is tuned right, you can use a 11.1v lipo as long as the discharge rate doesn't exceed 20c rating. I thought otherwise, butrecently met a couple players who been using theirs for about a year and it's fine.

    If all you're buying is a Lipo, remember to pick/click the USA/Canada warehouse button instead of the global! The shipping is cheaper, and they'll put the lipo in a USPS priority mail box which is 3 day shipping instead of 1 month.

    The only problem with the USA/Canada warehouse is that they don't have many products in stock yet.
