I recently recieved my kwa m16. I am using a 9.6v 4000mah battery and the rate of fire just feels slow, is it normal for a 9.6 or is my gun defective.(i will post a chrono of my current ROF soon)
*****I tested the volts on the 9.6v 4000mah and it came up as 8.63v.

- Your battery probably has a bad cell, maybe even more than one bad cell.
I had a couple 9.6v / 4500mah that were simply awesome batteries. ROF was awesome as well the batteries holding their charge. One finally bit the dust and the other one is starting to, four years later.
Now that I have essentially swithced to Li-po's exclusively, I don't hardly ever use NiMH batteries.

- You also may have an issue with the charger. Chargers seem to have a shelf life as well.
Chargers can also sometimes have a hard time charging every cell properly in such a large amp battery.

- A new battery may simply be the solution.

Van may very well be correct but without you posting what the ROF actually is there is no way for us to really judge if you even have an issue.....

Low ROF can be not only be caused by a faulty battery but from a motor that needs maintenance.  The brushes may simply need redressing.

Your battery is bad or your charger is bad and not charging it fully.

An 8.4v 7-cell NiMH battery should test at about 9.6v when fully charged; your 9.6v NiMH should be closer to 11v.
