Im really not sure whether or not I should use the 9.6 or the 11.1 mainly because of wear on the gun, is it that big of a deal? I play airsoft about once a month and shoot in 1-2 second bursts so would the lipo really hurt my gun much more then the 9.6?

The use of a 11.1v lithium battery would generally greatly increase your rate of fire.  This is because 11.1v lithium batteries have a higher amperage and voltage than a conventional 9.6v Nickel battery.  

Within the 1-2 seconds of trigger time, you would be dispensing much more ammunition than you would with a conventional 9.6v Nickel battery.  This would also speed up the process of wear and tear on your internals.  

However, the proper maintenance and care of your gun will greatly ensure the longevity of your weapon.  

If you do encounter issues or other questions like this, feel free to ask on the forum, or even contact the help desk.  We'll be more than happy to help.

try using a 10.8 volt Nickel battery if ur worried the 11.1 might wear your gun down faster....10.8 with a mosfet is just as good as a 11.1 with out a mosfet....i speaking from my own experience on my gun

I personally would rather have a 9.6v, not as much wear and tear and do you really need 24+ rps? (Yes KWAs can handle lipos, but it doesn't mean you should)  Some people put it this way, "It's like redlining your engine by going fast, just because you can, doesn't mean you should."  A 9.6v should put you at 20rps, which is plenty fast for me.  It only takes one bb to get someone out, do you really need the other 23+? ha ha

If you want a faster rof to have a better chance of getting someone out, get a TBB.  Then you will have increased accuracy and EFFECTIVE range. (and a slight fps bump, about 15 max)  This will make it much easier to take people out.   Lipos are overkill imo. (not to mention unrealistic)  For CQB, lipos definitely more useful, but if you plan to play woodland, imo stick with a 9.6v.

If you are good with gearboxes and fixing guns and thinking the ROF boost is worth the decrease in reliability (which is quite a bit) then by all means go for it.  It's really just personal preference. I like a pretty fast rof, but I also don't want it to be a bb hose.  Then you use more ammo in a less amount of time and you reload more often.  (bbs aren't free ha ha)

just my 2 cents.
