AEG batteries

Recommended Posts

Do all aeg guns use any type of batteries. such as an aeg using a 9.6v or an 7.4v?

 

What is the difference?

 

And if one battery offers higher power why doesn't everybody go for a higher voltage battery?

I wonder if you will get the short answer or long one from Sitting Duck?

Depends on gun, motor and if a MOSFET is used

 

You can hit 30 on a 7.4v or 40 rps on a 7.4v DSG

Have heard people reach 45rps on 7.4v but that is really really going some

 

Lipo's pi$$ over nimah's but only available in 7.4 11.1 or crazy 14.8v

 

LiFe batteries are at 9.9v but don't quite pack same punch as lipo imho.

 

Nimah's in 7.2 8.4 9.6 10.8 or 12v are OK but old skool and seem to die we quicker or at least lose charge quicker

 

But end of day use what you have to hand

Though know this:

 

S/hand nimah's often can be on their way out for holding their charge imho

Actually that was the short answer :)

 

Concise and precise, and not a mofo in sight.

so lips are the best batteries? And why is it bad having a 14.8v battery, isn't it better if its high powered?

Well for one 7.4v is usually cheaper and smaller as 2 cells are easier to squeeze into what limited room you have

 

Zippy compact from hobbyking are great but are the block style batteries - YOU have to measure what room you have.

 

Turnigy are also well respected along with Vapex

 

But end of day you have to use/but what battery will fit

Measure carefully make up a dummy to double check if it will fit blah blah blah etc....

 

You will be amazed how little juice you really do need

A good neodym motor, MOSFET deans etc... Will unleash hell compared to stock stuff fitted in your gun

If I fitted 11.1 or 14.4v in dome of my guns I will completely smash the f*ck out of them at trying to hit up to 50+ rps on a ssg

If you got a $hit stock ferrite motor you need more juice to get to 20rps.

 

Neodym motor 7.4v lipo can hit 20+ quite easily if done properly

 

Actually 30 on 12:1 gears - think I've been through all this

 

Plus big battery needs more space etc...

 

Nimah's suck imho

why don't you prefer high voltage batteries such as 9.6?

Because 9.6v is a nimh battery which doesn't deliver the power as efficiently maximum of about 12c I think.

You get slighty better results out of a 7.4v 25c+ lipo battery than you do out of a 9.6v nimh. The lipo is smaller, more power efficient,holds charge better and will last longer.

Nimh batterys can work fine in a really well set up gun (I use them with one of my gun set ups) but rof and response in a standard gun will be better with lipo as its discharge rate is higher and that makes it more instant on the power.

There is a lot more to this explanation,

Google lipo vs nimh and have a read as I hate typing out long posts.

Damn it I gotta go to work...

 

If I had 10 mins more I'd post up a Scrubs JD exploding head clip

or

Ye old film Scanners - Geezer's head explodes

 

Yup that would be ya motor on 24v

Really wish I had filmed it, it was funny and a fitting end to a G&G.
