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 $120 landed with shipping and tax in.
All of these "For Airsoft Batteries" are ridiculously overpriced and often very sketchy as they haven't been proven in another sport. Zippy's were made for RC Planes and have a long history with the fliers in the US, who have given a large number of reviews on hobbycity.com.
If you're in Toronto, and you want to see them, come to a game I'm at: I'll gladly show you.
+1000 to that i use RHINO zippy batteries as well... hell they are cheaper than nimh... i got a big 7.4 3500mah for like 25$
plus "airsoft brand" batteries are usually only rated 15c, rhino batteries are 20c and i got a 25c
