What battery do you all use in your KM4s Tacticals? I have had a little problem with battery's fitting. I want to use either a 9.6v or a lipo. Also if your going to say buy KWA's battery they are out. I do have a question about the connector of their battery tough, why does it look so strange in all the pics? And will a balancer and charger i have already work with it?

Thanks for any help
Dustin

Dude, read the thread that you started "LIPO HELP", my setup is pretty much what you could only do to your KM4S-Tactical and keep the battery inside the foregrip http://www.kwausa.co...p?showtopic=224
after dremelling metal 9.6v Nimh mini fits but very tight fit.  http://www.batterysp...e...&ProdID=392

With lipos you wouldn't have a problem because they're so small.  Your charger and balancer should work on most if not all lipos.  Dimension of the lipo you will buy.  Length should be 125 mm or lower (no problem w/ 2 or 3 cell lipo), width 35 mm or below (watch out some lipos are wide), and most importantly height 18 or 17 mm or lower. try this co. they're one of the cheapest w/ good quality lipos here in the U.S. http://www.all-batte...mp;Category=173  if you're comfortable ordering in Hong Kong (paypal) many co's there with cheap and good spec lipos.

lastly, no questions about connectors- most if not all aeg comes w/ tamiya connectors. I suggest you change to DEANS!

cheers!

Thanks for all your help. the dimensions will help alot. but there is a problem, I went to the site you provided and there is no lipo that would fit inside of my gun. It sounds like i will just need to buy the KWA battery and be done with it.


For the height being 17-18mm is that after you moded your gun or that should fit in a stock Km4s??

No prob.

17-18mm After mod.  Btw, the mod was done for the 9.6V Nimh to fit (longer). and since lipos are generally shorter maybe you dont have to mod...?  from the site, this is what I have this but super tight fit you can barely lock down the foregrip http://www.all-batte...amp;ProdID=2350 there are other lipo's on the site but most are 7.4V only here's my other batt for back up http://www.all-batte...amp;ProdID=1622
I wanted to try this one but they're out of stock til Sept. http://www.all-batte...amp;ProdID=2259 (don't be discouraged by low mah-this batt go around 1,750-2,250) I have this spec but diffrent brand.  

why did I reply so long again :(  KWA batt is made by redalert, there's one retailer out there which is a little cheaper.
send me personal email and I'll send you link. I don't want to hurt KWA biz by posting it here.  ;)
