I just bought an m4a1 yesterday with the custom RIS rail off of airsoftcgi.com. I bought a battery as well but it has the mini connecter type. Do i have the correct connector type or do I need to by a converter wire?

If i have to buy a converter wire, is this something I could get from radio shack?

KWA M4 comes with a mini Tamiya plug.

A deans plug on new KWA guns would be nice instead of those :lol:

Nah, I'm cool with tamya. Most batteries I get online have tamya connectors. Large ones, too. I think it would be nice if it came with a large type connector, because I bought the wrong type connector of ASGI, so I had to buy another, to hook up my uber-battery. ;)

4500mah 8.4v Crane Stock battery. THIS THING IS A BEAST!

I will NEVER run out of power!! :lol:

And the heavy crane stock makes it easier for me to turn corners. That's my opinion, though.

I use the same lipo battery Allizard does.  3 stick type 11v Lipoly its only 1200mah but it finish 11 KWA mags full of BBs before it runs out of juice. Deans plug is considered an upgrade for better conductivity. Mos High powered AEGs/RCs use deans plugs

I'll use deans connectors as soon as batteries come with deans connectors.   ;)

Also, all of the $300+ RC cars at my local hobby shop use tamya too. I think it is the more universal connector.

Deans give better trigger response and sometimes a higher ROF.. but not too much

DEAN = less resistance = Higher ROF

I only have 1 clip, and this gun already shoots faster than my friends with an 8.4, so ROF isn't that critical for me.  :lol:

Allizard is right, a clip is what is used to feed a magazine (ie. M1 Grand, SKS, Mauser Bolo or Broom handle, etc .....) ;)

Take a mini plug and put it beside a Deans plug and compare. You connect the wires of a mini plug buy wraping the metal sheets over the wires and it feels loose even when you plug the battery in. A wire connected to a deans plug has to be soldered to it.

No one cant tell anybody what they have to do with their stuff.

If some refuse improvement because they are content then thats just fine.

Airsoft has always been about fun.

Im just glad we have companies who are very competent. Who try to make the best of the products they offer.
