Full description

Charge this battery the right way...


NiMH batteries are the most likely battery you will come across as a beginner in Airsoft - they're robust, do the job and withstand a lot more abuse than their fragile LiPo counterparts. Being in a square block form, this style of battery is very easy to install given that your battery compartment is large enough - M4 and G36 handguards both accept this style of battery but there will be others that this will be appropriate for. Please bear in mind that if you can fit the 9.6v equivalent of this battery then you should opt for that as 8.4v may not provide the power you need for your weapon. Anyone running old weapons particularly outdated LMGs should stick to an 8.4v to make sure your gearbox doesn't turn over too fast.

Airsoft Battery should only be charged with the chargers as they are specifically designed to work with the specific voltages required by the battery.

Different battery types have different chemical configurations, and require certain chargers to charge them. Charging a battery with the wrong charger can cause damage to the battery and charger, and can cause fires and further damage. Please ensure that before charging you double check that you are using the correct charger.

If your charger supports multiple battery types always ensure that it is on the correct settings before starting the charge.

We always recommend charging LiPos and other batteries in a charging bag.
