What is better for airsoft LiPo or NiMH?

Pro grade ASG Battery charger NiMH/Lipo If you want to use Lipo batteries without adding more wear and tear to the gun, use a 7.4v Lipo. These perform like 9.6v NiMH batteries for all intents and purposes. For those who want a little more oomph, you would want an 11.1v Lipo.

Is LiPo battery better than NiMH?

The weight/power ratio in LiPo batteries is significantly better. LiPo batteries are noticeably lighter and they can store the same amount or more energy relative to their capacity than NiMH batteries. The power output of LiPo batteries is greater in quality and quantity.

How long do Airsoft Lipo batteries last?

Shots Per Battery If you are using a 1,400 mAH battery, for example, you can expect to fire about 1,400 rounds before your battery goes dead. That may sound like quite a lot, but keep in mind that many airsoft battles often last several hours.

Do airsoft LiPo batteries come charged?

When you get a new lipo battery it will already come partially charged. This partial charge is called the Storage Voltage. Storage voltage is where each cell is charged to approximately 3.8 volts. (Don’t worry if you are unfamiliar with battery cells, we will get more into that later).

What does a better airsoft battery do?

They are higher performance, and offer a faster rate of fire and trigger response. All Lithium chargers are also smart chargers, so you don’t have to worry about charging as much. We recommend the Tenergy LIPO charger for the best charge.

Which is better Lipo or NiMH for airsoft?

LiPo vs NiMH Airsoft. LiPo batteries are newer and they come with big advantage to the sport of Airsoft. They are suggestively lighter and smaller than the NiMh batteries. A 7.4v LiPo would have the same performance as an 8.4v NiMh. One doesn’t need to cycle a new LiPo battery and it will not lose its memory cell.

Are LiPo batteries better than NiMH batteries?

If you want a battery that can hold a charge the longest then again LiPo beats NiMH in the LiPo vs NiMH showdown. As far as safety and performance is considered the LiPo battery wins from a margin from the NiMH battery.

What are the pros and cons of NiMH batteries?

They cost efficient when compared to LiPo, the batteries have a long life of about 500-1000 charges or 2-3 years and not as likely to catch fire if punctured like their comparator in LiPo verses NiMH. Trickle charging them is a modest job, and there is little danger of overcharging.

Are NiMH batteries good for RC cars?

When you buy an RTR (Ready To Run) RC (Radio Controlled) car it’ll most likely come with a NiMH battery (if at all) as they’re fairly cheap, reliable and safe compared to LiPo batteries. Most people will eventually upgrade to LiPo after getting used to running their RC car or buggy on a NiMH battery.
