Looks like this battery is within spec.


I have been Using a 12c 1200mah 11.1 Lipo and now switched to a 20c 1200mah 11.1v.

There doesnt seem to be any diff. ROF is still 18.9 RPS. LOL.

So this means that using a 11.1 Lipo with a higher mAh (Say 3000), it would increase wear in tear?

about lipo wear, the C rating will be something youll have to consider with lipos.

Will a 11.1V lipo 4000mAh 15C battery work in the KM4A1 gun without hurting it, and since its 15C can it still get 20+ rps?

You could just get a G&P M120 motor and use a 9.6v.  That gives people more than 20 rps right there.  It's also easier on your electrical system. :D

I didnt know the GnP was faster or alot more effecient than the KWA motor.Ill check on that.
KWA motor is no doubt better than the ICS turbo 3000 and EG1000

I'm actually thinking about getting an 11.1V 3000mAh 20C. What do you think that would get with an S130+ spring?

So what would be the best recommendation for a LiPo battery?

7.4v 1600mAh 15A?

A 7.4v will work but don't expect the crazy rof numbers that others are posting. It'd be equivalent to a 9.6 or so.

i have a 7.4v 2400mah 20c and it is quite a bit faster than a 9.6v.

A 7.4v LiPo should give you about the same ROF of a real steel m4.

What would be the ROF?

I did some research on it but i couldn't find a good source. :(

Even in wiki.

Edit:

If i use a 11.1v LiPo, how many months or weeks will the gears tear off?

What do people think?

would 1800mah/15c/27A work?

Has anybody used this spec of battery?

How long would this battery spec last?

thanks.

So, for driving a M150 equiv spring would a LiPo be worth it.  I'm going for velocity/fps more that sheer RPM with my overall set up and I dont want to wear my internals out with blazing speed.  I don't use full auto too often, just semi with doube taps to keep the gear gods happy.  I'm in the market for a new battery and am just looking for some input on what will drive the M150. thanks

What gun do you have, an M4?  How is the battery working with ROF?
