What's wrong with your existing 9.6v 2300mah?

Where do you store your battery, inside the handguard or elsewhere?

the 9.6 is pretty slow and my friend has the exact same gun as me with no upgrades and his ROF is way higher, and my battery goes in a peq box

High torque motors are not meant for high ROF. They're meant for torque. How high of an ROF do you want anyway? With a 9.6v you should be getting 12-15 at least, which is probably higher than the real M4.

take a 10.8V battery you'll have a crazy ROF...
same voltage 9.6V and double capacity (like 4200 mAh) should do it also.

hint: you don't need any of these to pwn.

They exist, but it would just be easier to cut the head off the connector on the battery and solder on a new one that fits properly.

...cut it off with a knife, use either the knife or wire strippers to strip the wire, solder the leads to the connector. Cover with thermal coverings or electrical tape.
