11.1V 2100mAh ok for my gun?

Post  Zombiedance on Wed Apr 20, 2011 9:44 pm

I have a KWA km4-a1 (2gx version) and i just bought a 11.1V 2100mAh(10C) battery for it. The question is is it ok to run in my gun? I know that due to the faster rof it will wear it faster but I'm just wondering if it will run without destroying my gun in one game supposedly it can run it but i don't want to risk it. So far I've read that kwa airsoft guns run 11.1V(15C) max. but eh.

There are 4 main issues when running a lipo through you gun:

1) Trigger arch ( this is where most guns that have thin trigger assemblies are affected, but most guns will last some time before a replacement is needed. $25part / $25install)

2) Wire heat up (this is when the wires heat up due to the added voltage load, cheap wiring ie G&G's will crystalize and become brittle)

3) Rapid o-ring wear ( with the added ROF comes added wear on the piston o-ring and decrease in fps, however all high ROF guns see this)

4) BB eater syndrone (you will go through the bag a lot faster, after all now you have a lazer bb gun)

KWA's have a very strong trigger assembly and shouldn't have any problem with Trigger Arch or wire heat up. They advertise and promote lipo use and have great tech department that will fix any problems incountered with lipo if you were to have it (for free). However I haven't seen it yet. (but keep your reciepts just in case)

Now lipo's are a completly differnt bear and if you don't take care of them in the proper manner will die on you faster than a 5000rd bag of bb's owned by cillercarl.

Yeh i already noticed how fast a mag was gone when i shot a mag out into an apple hehe. It seemed to shoot fine and i went back to my old 9.7 battery to see if anything happened to the gun and no it shot fine still so thats good. But i was able to find my manual for the gun and a 11.1v 10c is the highest it can go before you start to harm the gun the only thing i noticed is in the manual it was like 1900mAh or around there and my battery is 2100mAh is there anything to really worry about there?

MAH is just milli amp hours if im right, it just tells you the amount of time you have for battery life

The thing to be aware of is not to hold the trigger down for extremely long periods of time. The higher the mAh the longer period the battery will last/run for.

Warning -
-Always store your battery fully charged
-Always monitor the battery when charging (catching fire is a small act, it can and will explode not once but for each cell if not charged properly)
-never let your battery go completely dead (cells will not recharge when completely discharged)
-balance the battery often (ensure that each cell carries equal voltage)

Ultimatly be smart and safe. There is a forum on the Panhandle site that goes over lipo's in great detail. I'll see if I can copy it and post it over here.

Thats what i thought mAh ment but i just didn't want to risk it for all i knew it affected something else. Also i talked with the guy who sold it to me for a while on how it works, how to charge, and so forth. None the less thanks a lot for the info! I prolly wont use the battery very much either way due to it burning through my bbs like no tomorrow. Also I finally found my gun on airsoftgi ( its weird because i didn't order that gun... ) and almost all the reviews talk about running an 11.1V lipo. Quite a few are from people saying their guns are still running great after several months even though they have been using an 11.1V lipo. I think that I'm going to be fine running it but like you guys said I'm probably going to burn through all my ammo in a heartbeat.
