The best way to know for sure is to go to the source, E-mail them and explain that you have a mini-tamiya male end and require a female connector on the battery.
The space available inside the stock for the battery is 5 - 5 1/4" x 2", that's it!

If you think you're pretty good with soldering and wiring and such you might as well order a battery with deans and rewire your mini to deans connectors (get a deans kit).

18 or 20 gauge wire is probably what you should be getting.

+1. I got a battery with female deans and 2 pack of male deans, one for the gun, and one for my charger. I had a large female tymilia (or however you spell it) laying around, so i took that male deans and made an adaptor, so now i can charge it with any charger.

Mini types fit 8.4V and 9.6V. More milliamps (MAh) is better also.
The battery that came with your Kraken is a sub-c 8.4V 1100MAh. I use the stock battery all the time with no problems - I also like the rate of fire.
If you use the larger sub-c type, you're restricted to 8.4V as the 9.6V may be too large and not fit in the stock.
The mini-tamiya connectors are fine IMO, deans just offer a larger connection area which supplies more efficient power to your rifle. If you're not comfortable with changing connector ends, don't.
I've had no problems with my Kraken using the stock wire set, the stock gear box, and the stock battery, but one thing you may want to look into is a smart charger as the wall chargers are usually junk and can destroy batteries even when used properly.

.
Also +1. The tamiya are ok, i just recommend deans because they are only like $2 and are worth the ease of connectivity, space saving design(there is about an inch in length difference between 2 deans and 2 Large tamiya connectors plugged together, important especially if you have a full stock or crane stock) and extra conductive-ness. Soldering is fairly easy, but if you don't know how ask a parent for help because you can melt things and screw up your plugs.

EDIT Oops, i see you are using mini-tamiya. Still, the difference in length is still about the same, Mini's are just thinner.

The best thing to do is E-mail them and ask. Explain in the mail that you currently are using a sub-c 8.4V 1100MAh battery and would like to upgrade it to something a little more power.
As for battery types and what to get I have no opinion as I always use the stock battery.

I have this battery. It does not fit inside the stock unless you hammer out some little tabs in it. It's pretty tough but once you get them out you're golden. I highly suggest you get female deans connector on the battery and solder a male one in place of the mini tamiya on your gun, that's what I did. If not, get the standard gauge wire and mini tamiya connector.

Edit: You must get the 8.4 volt (7 cell). The 9.6 volt will not fit no matter what.

Please don't double post, this is a forum not MSN. People will eventually get to your question but remember that we are not here at your beck and call.

... specially since we don't really encourage underaged airsoft.

Now, to properly answer your question, as well as further reference, your gun is loosely based on an AK47 from Tokyo Marui. Hence, most of what fits that gun should fit yours.

On the site you listed there is a product selector, which will eventually lead you to this:

http://www.cheapbatterypacks.com/mai...r=15&model=122

TL;DR don't bump your question again unless it's been a few days.
