About the Enhanced 9.6V 1600mAh battery

If you are using an electric gun, the battery is your lifeline right next to ammo. For your basic equipment you should start out by having high quality batteries. Most stock guns perform at a similar level so there is nothing that should be done to alter its behavior that requires opening the gun up. The best immediate thing you can do is invest in high quality batteries off the bat. Having adequate battery performance will improve how effortlessly your gun turns over each shot as well as affect your rate of fire.

This particular battery pack is your common 9.6 volt battery back in a nunchuck configuration. 9.6v nickel metal hydride batteries have 8 cells and a single plug wire which is used for both charging or powering your airsoft gun. The capacity is 1600mah which is good for over 1000+ shots if fully charged and used on a stock gun. Mah (milliamp hours) is your capacity -- think of it as your gas tank. The higher the number the more shots it can put out of your gun as well as the longer it takes to fill that gas tank (to charge). The next important thing to know is the battery type. Nimh batteries use their own battery charger so do not grab the wrong charger thinking it will work, you could potentially damage your battery. Likewise don't do this for other batteries, certain battery types are more volatile and can easily be damaged or explode if charged with the wrong equipment within just a few seconds. It should be noted that Nimh don't have the same memory effect as other batteries so you can use this until it's significantly low and not worry too much about damaging cells. This makes Nimh batteries the recommended choice for beginners. Lastly, the shape of the battery, in this case butterfly or nunchuck being the common term for this configuration, determines what guns this battery pack is meant for. This will typically fit M4 rifles with collapsing buttstocks. If you are uncertain of the battery you need, don't hesitate to email or call us with your gun maker and model so that we can help you determine what it is that you need.

Q: How long do I charge the battery?

A: For any battery back and charger combo, you must figure out the capacity (mah) and the charger's output (mA). Remember the mah is how much energy is stored much like a gas tank in a car or a bucket of water. The mA will be found on the charger and is how much it charges in an hour. So if the output is 500mA it can fill up a 1000mA battery in 2 hours. Using standard chargers means you will have to be extra careful and unplug the battery when it's done. Leaving it on too long after the battery is fully charged can lead to damage or the battery exploding. The best thing to do and a cheap investment is to buy a smart charger which will not only charge your battery faster but also turn off when it is full so you do not have to worry about timing.

Q: How many batteries do you recommend for a day of play?

A: One is okay for the conservative player but two packs is usually the safe bet especially on longer days.
