Can FPS be lowered with a weaker battery?

Ok, here's the real info. You CAN reduce the fps via the battery. Let me explain: if you remove the battery, turn the hop up off, load a mag, and point the barrel at the ground, the BB will fly out at a greatly reduced velocity. Class dismissed.

I now own a high end chronograph, the CED Millenium2. I intend to test this; indoors so there are no temperature or wind or lighting variables.

I am glad you posted Jagdalex, because your data backs up the theory that I was going to post about this morning anyway. M102404 brings up a good point about lighting, barrel angle, etc in his post so I will do my best to eliminate these variables. The indoor location will remove most. If I use a "bench rest" in front of the chrono and just swap batteries from 7.2v to 8.4v to 9.6v I should eliminate the rest. Then I will post the results.
And if that could help you in your test I did all these chrono test inside with no wind or environmental factors and the barrel was slightly tilted downward when I was shooting in my cardboard box. Also I used the same battery 9,6V 1500mah.

And for those putting the dead horse thing, we know...needless to post it againg and again... it's just a matter to verify if it could be possible or not, not that we really care for in-game purpose...
