Hi,
What is the difference between a lipo (i think they are called that) and a normal battery, and why which one is better?

Voltage

Lipo is 11V Roughly

Normal ones ethier roughly 8v or 9v

V (volts) effect your Rate Of Fire (ROF) the higher the V the higher the ROF

Lipo's are considerably more than 'just volatage'
they come in 7.4V, 11.2V and increments thereafter for custom jobbies

they have a much higher discharge rate and If not looked after are EXTREMELY dangerous, they also need to be balanced regualraly, not fully discharged and have to use a lipo charger to charge them.

BUT
you get a higher ROF from a lower voltage and trigger response is always vastly improved over a stock NiMh battery.

I would personally avoid recommending them to people who are new to airsofting or may not want the hassle involved with them

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.
