    Is it worth it to invest in lipo upgrading a gun.

    Yes, yes, yes, yes.
    IMO, NiMh is out dated, LiPo is a better form of battery.

    Yes, it is. It helps in just about every way.

    Start with a 7.4 if you don't want to overwork your gun though.

    Also, to add to Thestig, a 7.4v LiPo doesn't not require a MOSFET to run. So, if you don't want a MOSFET, start with a 7.4v.

    If you've been playing for longer than a few months and plan on continuing with the sport, then by all means, take the next step.

    Obviously the benefits are the fact that they store more usable energy in a smaller package, they come in a variety of sizes and discharge rates, and so on and so on.

    Now if you're not willing to do a bit of very simple research to learn how to take care and use the battery, I would advise you not invest/use. Aside from that, there are many benefits, and now that technology has advanced, the "dangers" of owning/using a Lipo has significantly dropped, WHEN USED CORRECTLY.

    To add on, you never NEED a MOSFET for any lipo. It does help extend the life of the trigger contacts though along with the small ROF increase.
