View Full Version : Battery Voltages

06-16-2004, 02:22 AM
I am considering buying a tm SR-16 from Redwolf Airsoft. Most of the time I see people using the standard sub-c size batteries in a 7-cell configuration, I however, have some 3000 NiMh packs that I use for my Tc3 (r/c car). these packs are 7.2 volts. getting to the point, I wanted to know (1. if I sued the 7.2 volt packs, would they work with a stock A.E.G?and (2. About how much would the rate of fire drop? Any information is greatly appreciated.

As long as you left the gun stock and had the large capacity that you do, the 7.2v battery should work ok. I would expect to see the ROF drop off by a couple hundred rounds per minute, but unfortunately I don't have any hard data or experience to confirm that. I do know that the Systema AEG that recently came out uses a 7.2v pack to give a more realistic ROF.

Wolv is right, except I would expect to see about 100 rpm drop. Given 7.2 vs 8.4 based off of a stock speed of 600-800 rpm. But I have no hard data either. :)
