Youll notice 2 plugs on the battety one that goes to the gun and one that matches up to the monitor. Just plug n play. Youll want more then anything a lipo alarm thatll make noise when the batgery gets close to its lowwer threshold so you dont over discharge it. And youll want a good balance charger.

Thanks guys, so something like these 2 would do well in addition to the Lipo battery, first is the alarm and next is the balancer. Now until I get these parts, is there a way to tell when I should be charging my battery without damaging it? Or should I leave it alone till I get the parts?

I recommend the iMax B6 charger, cheap, reliable, charges NiCd/NiMH/LiPo and Lead acid car batteries lol
Also runs off a car battery!
And wait till you have a proper charger to charge LiPos. They're inexpensive batteries, but they can do a lot of damage if you don't take care of them

I'm pretty new to the sport but I saw you mention something about your p226 and balls falling out. I did not see anyone acknowledging this but, I think it has something to do with hop-up adjustment. My sniper rifle was doing the same thing and I adjusted the hop and it stayed in place when cocked.

Correct me if I am wrong please.

That's correct, can happen on any gun. The hop is what keeps the BB in place once it's been fed into the chamber.
If it's off, it can actually simulate low FPS because the BB is halfway down the barrel by the time the piston releases.

Ok, back again, lol... My Ballancer and alarm arrived. I have the ones seen above at my post at June 19th, 2013, 09:57 .

Balancer seems straight forward so far. But the alarm, it came in a little baggie with no instructions. It has 4 prongs and my Lipo has 3 holes. Does it matter how I hook this upu to my battery?

Thanks again for all the help guys.

It's normal.

Four pins means that it supports up to 3 cell (one pin per cell plus the first one that opens and close the circuit). Just check which way you need to plug it and plug your (I presume) two cell battery in it. It'll work ;-)

In my lipo alarms there is a little "-" minus sign next to one of the pin.
In most lipos there are one black wire next to one of the hole.
They go together, and the other two holes should be obvious.

If this don't work for you, don't worry, there are only 4 ways to plug the alarm in, try them all. The right way should give you a little beep and the LED will shine, the wrong ways won't do any damage, just unplug it and try other ways.
