What are the Different Battery Types for Electric Airsoft Guns (AEG)?
Every Airsoft AEG (Automatic Electric Gun) runs off of a rechargeable battery, so don’t worry about stocking up on AAs. There are several battery types and battery shapes out there. More expensive AEG Airsoft guns usually don’t come with a battery pack, so it must be purchased separately. Battery types include LiPO, LiFe and NiMH rechargeable batteries. Make sure your Airsoft guns supports the correct battery type before plugging it in or you might damage it. Make sure you also only use batteries that have correct voltage for your Airsoft gun. Check you Airsoft gun’s manual to get all the relevant information pertaining to upgrades.
