Alternate power supply for Reloader B

Would it be possible to power my box magazine with an 11.1v 1300 ma Airsoft battery? Its got Reloader B internals. Im looking to free up some more space inside.

Here is the mag:






I would like to mount one of these "laser" battery packs on my marker for an incognito power supply.

I dont know too much about batteries but with airsoft you can upgrade to a larger battery to get more power out of your gun so that 11.1v may damage some of the components on the board.

short answer is no..

quick solution is get a 7.4v rc lipo battery. Very small, very powerful and fairly cost effective. It'll cost you about 50 bucks for the battery/charger setup

That is a cheap setup but it will provide a real big punch even though its a little less power than running the 6 pack of AA (9v).

HOBBYTOWN USA - 2-3 Cell LiPo Balancing Charger, 0.65A
HOBBYTOWN USA - 7.4V 800mAh 2-Cell LiPo, JST/Balance

I need more voltage than that though. The 6 AA's in there now are giving me 9v's. So the 7.4 is going to give me less punch. Maybe I could add a step down or something?


Edit: NVM, I think I can fit a BONE pack inside one of the empty laser cases. Best of both worlds.

the 7.4v isn't going to be much of a voltage drop. When your motor starts spinning hard on those 6 AA's the voltage drop is going to be pretty heavy as well as a large drop in the amount of current they are putting out just because alkaline batteries can only supply so much power in a certain increment of time. Lipo batteries on the other hand have a very very small voltage drop under heavy draw and you would likely see an improvement in performance.

That being said, the bones packs are great too =P

A regular 9v should work just fine, and feed at least a case or two of paint. I don't have a board in one of my halo's, just a 9v and a relay connected to the gun's solenoid wires and it works great. Some lithium ion rechargeable batteries would be nice....

9v's are a terrible design (so far as all the electrical engineers tell me.) And they are expensive as hell too.
