    I never knew that model existed actually. Anyway, everyone recommends NiMH batteries as starter batteries.
    Look up "9.6v nunchuck" on Evike and get a smart charger on Evike too.

    I would suggest a lipo, they are smaller and give better performance than nimh batteries. Hobbyking.com has much better prices than any airsoft retailers. A 7.4v lipo is a good place to start.

    Also, they have nice balance chargers for reasonable prices at hobby king.

    This path saves time and money but failure to take care of them properly can be a health hazard

    That is true with any battery, i have had a nimh battery catch fire in one of my guns, but never had an issue with lipos. Lipos are in use in cell phones, computers, and a lot of modern electronics, if they were as bad as some airsofters claim, you would hear more horror stories about them. They are no more harmful than any other battery, the only thing extra to remember is to not fully discharge the battery.

    Here is a link to an inexpensive battery that would fit the gun you linked nicely.

    I have over charged, discharged, thrown them in water, stored them in my freezer, so on and have never had any issue with a NiMH.
    Yesterday a lipo caught fire most likely because he constantly dipped the voltage. I'm just saying if you aren't familiar with taking care of a better, NiMH is fine to star with

    I'm confused on the "Tayima" And "Tayima Small" connectors, I don't want to get the wrong battery for the gun.

    The top is a large tamiya and the bottom is a small. Most guns come with a small, but I will check your gun real quick.
    Edit: Your gun is labeled as tamiya, so there is a 99% chance it is small tamiya.
