I run just ordinary 9.6V Ni-Mh. They have little or no memory, don't care how they're stored, readily available and cheap. If you need more performance, optimize your air system and leave the juice alone. I have a G36 shooting 428fps with a 9.6V Ni-MH and it only has a 110 spring! Make it more efficient...otherwise it's no better than running a big block in a Toyota. No point in having all that power if you can't put it to the ground.
Yah I don't need anything fancy, again just something that works and is dependable and simple. Do most guns come with a battery? It is not listed with the model I am looking at.
