Question Battery Size?

Hey quick question for you all, I have two 6 cell 4200mah 7.2v NiMH battery packs and was wondering if... one would fit in a G&G GR16 R4 stock
(batt size 5 1/4 in long 1 3/4 in wide and 1 inch deep)
and if 7.2v would be enough to run the AEG?

Thanks in Advance

7.2V will be a little low for running it. Is that AEG a full stock?

They should fit. While 7.2V is a bit low, that crazy high capacity may be able to pull the gun as it would with a lower capacity 8.4V. Hest I could say is to try. Worse that can happen is it won't work adequately.

The full stock will be able to fit up to a 9.6V, or I've heard a custom shaped 10.8V can fit. But yeah it will be able to fit that no problem. I agree with crunch, it might be able to pull it considering its huge capacity. But you would be better off with an 8.4V large.

QFT! I have 2 batteries from there. The cells are ridiculously high quality and great prices! I'm never buying from anywhere else.

Yeah. 16 or 14 for me. I use 14 just because I know I am using it in a full stock, so it has plenty of space.
