No I mean the little bags you put your lipo in to charge the fire retardant things. I do not have the beepers. Shoulda gotten though.

If you want to spend a little extra to be as safe as possible, sure. But bear in mind that LiPos only catch on fire due to idiocy. Unless you intentionally overload them, they are as safe as any other battery. The counter argument to that being that you may as well put them in a LiPo bag, just in case you get very very unlucky.

I bought one for 4 bucks, but I have a feeling that being in the tight sack it will just make it get hotter quicker... I dunno though

Again, they do NOT GET HOT unless you do something very wrong and stupid. As long as you do what you are supposed to (charge it on a LiPo charger) they will be perfectly fine, both in and out of a LiPo bag. You have nothing to worry about man ;).

I love lipos thats all I run, there is a store around us that sells 11.1 2000 mah for 20 dollars best part is that they are already wired to deans.

I have had one explode in a gun once. I bought it used and we could tell it wasn't well taken care of and after about 2000 shots the gun stopped firing we took the battery out and my wife saw bubbles in the wrapper. This is the first time I have had it happen and like I said it was not taken care of well from the person I bought it from.

7.4v 15c, or the equivalent to a 9.6v 1600mah battery, STICK type exist?

I see the tenergy ones, but I don't see ones that look the same size as a 9.6v stick battery, because it can have to much diameter, as battery space is long but not wide.

What are you intending to put this in? A Tenergy stick lipo is 140x20x17mm, or 5.5x.75x.65". You're not going to get much of any smaller than that.

It's just like any other AK wired to the dust cover; that's exactly what those stick lipos are designed for. Your average 9.6v cell is around 17-18mm OD anyway.

12C-15C is good more most stock AEGs. It's when you get into the high mah 11.1v 20C+ batteries that most stock guns won't handle for long.

This is looking good to me, getting 2 probably, they are the same price as 2 tenergy 9,6v 1600 mah NiMH batteries. http://www.amazon.com/Tenergy-7-4v-Stic ... 583&sr=8-1
