Just picked up a 9.4v 3300mah for my ICS LA85 A2... was this a bad choice voltage wise?

Should be ok, would be more worried about the physical size of the thing tbh.

Most new ICS guns are recommended for at least 9.6v aren't they?

I've got a 9.6 3300mah in mine and it works a treat.

Starting the day on a full charge the battery will last all day - no swapping batteries at lunchtime.

I fitted mine into the handgrip with velcro to stop it moving about and I charge it in the gun.
double taps - not just for bathrooms

Fits perfect actually. Used a bit of high density foam to keep it from moving about, but apart from that is a perfect fit.

Got a small 8.6v as a backup, just incase.

Can really notice the difference in rate of fire between the two batteries. It came with an 8.4 so thought I had made a mistake by upping the voltage when buying my main battery.

You've said 9.4v and 8.6v. Just wondering where you got these from? Standard sizes are 7.2v, 8.4v, 9.6v, 10.8v and 12v for NiMH. LiPo's are 7.4v, 11.1v.
