If you have never used lipos before Read up on them as they are not your average battery. Buy a good charger and balancer. Stay away from hobby zone stuff, its shit.
I've been using Zippy Lipo's for a year now, with no problems. They cost $8 + shipping and tax. 7.4v 1600mah 20C batteries wired to Deans connectors, smaller than a 8.4v mini NiMH but with more power than a 8.4v Large.
You can get them here: hobbycity.com
For a charger, I recommend the "ELITE 6i AC/DC Charger + Lipo Balancer"
, as it can charge LiPO, NiMH, NICAD, Lb... etc. It's about $120 landed with shipping and tax in.
All of these "For Airsoft Batteries" are ridiculously overpriced and often very sketchy as they haven't been proven in another sport. Zippy's were made for RC Planes and have a long history with the fliers in the US, who have given a large number of reviews on hobbycity.com.
If you're in Toronto, and you want to see them, come to a game I'm at: I'll gladly show you.
Ár skal rísa, sá er annars vill
fé eða fjör hafa. Sjaldan liggjandi úlfur
