Does anyone know aproximently how long an 8.4 volt, 1700 mah, battery will last?

Too many variables to accurately predict (age of motor, strength of AEG spring, resistance of wiring harness, how smoothly the gears were shimmed, etc.), but a very rough rule of thumb for a 400fps/.2g upgraded AEG is 1-2 shots per mAh. Thus, you would get 1700-3400 rounds from a 1700mAh pack. In my experience, expect closer to the 3400 rounds, although it has been a while since I've drained a battery pack.

So to clarify, you do not use energy unless the gun is being discharged?

??? Not sure what you are asking.

If you are not shooting the gun, the battery doesn't discharge enough to notice or affect your play that day. If you leave your battery in your gun for a length of time, say like a week or a month, then it will dischargeslowly by nature at a rate dependant on the cell technology.

You hit it right on the ball. Thanks for the help. I was worried that one battery would not be sufficient to fufill 6 hours. After your explanations I relize its how many shots rather than how many hours.

Thanks again.
