Crane stock battery charging

Hi,i just got my crane stock Vltor M4 by the mail.This is my first crane stock and changing batteries is a pain.Can i leave my battery IN the crane stock to charge it?
I have a good charger that i can configure amp intake,mah total and all that.When i finish charging my batteries they are quite hot.

How much mah does your battery have and at how many amps do you charge it?

Rule of thumb is not to charge your battery at a rate of more than one Amp per 1000 mah. Charging you battery more slowly will reduce the heat generated by the charging process.

Just as an example I use 9.6V 1600 mah batteries in my AKS-74U. I charge them at a rate of .9 mah and there is very little heat build up.

lower your amps and the battery wont get as warm. It will just take longer to charge.

or you hammer it with higher amps and set the battery on a DIY cooling station with an assortment of PC fans rigged to a wall wart power supply.

caveat: overheating your battery will damage/shorten it's lifespan.

my 9.6v 1400mah use to get awfully hot when charged at 2-3 amps. it doesn't even get warm anymore.


**please don't tell me not to charge at high current. been doing this for ages on many types of batteries and have no issues with them.

Yeah, but if you over current Lithium Ion or LiPo batteries without a PCM, you'll blow it lol. Over current protection usually kicks in from 2A-6A with a PCM.

I am not familiar with airsoft.

What my question is, does the element of surprise work on a typical airsoft match?
