Check for specifics (sorry don't know ehobby's site very well).

Note...the link you referred to does list the max length (152mm)...but keep in mind that you're going to want a bit of space for wires/connectors in there too.

Also note that it says it comes with "T-Shape Type Connector Rear Wire" which I'm GUESSING they mean a DEANS connector. If they've done it right the male end is on the gun. Most stock tube lipos I've seen are mini Tamiya you'll need to change the connector.
Thank you for the awesome reply. You've cleared up a lot of questions that I had.

I'm still somewhat confused as to what "KIND" of battery I should be looking at.

I realise it should be either a 7.4V / 11.1V Lithium Battery. I'm confused as to what kind of connector (related to my battery), I should be looking for.

Do I select a battery with a Tamiya connector (I'm guessing NO)? Or do I need a battery with a T (Dean) type of connector. I'm also confused as to what a MINI T connector is.

I can't purchase my battery from eHobby Asia, so my last alternative is RedWolf.

If someone could please help me find a battery I'd be VERY grateful and willing to name my first born after you!
