Because I don't understand airsoft tech at all... I looked everywhere (with my tiny airsoft knowledge) but am unsure what battery to get because, I don't want to get the wrong one for my gun.
You will need a smart charger for your battery whether it is NiMH or Lipo, it is extremely highly recommended that you never charge a battery with the charger that comes with the gun, those chargers tend to destroy batteries very quickly. I personally have an IMAX B6AC Pro smart charger and I would recommend it (or the non-pro version) to anyone in a heartbeat. It is a bit expensive but it is well worth the price.
