    If you seek more speed from your AEG one of the best ways to achieve that is by using an 11.1V LiPo battery. The issue with this is that most AEGs are not capable of handling the additional power of such a battery, and will fail quickly without upgrades. Though we do not generally advise this as most AEGs perform well with a 7.4V LiPo, and won't require additional work done, there are ways that you can strengthen your AEG's internals to stand a better chance of handling the additional strain of an 11.1V battery.
