I recently purchased the Zeus and am considering buying Dormlabs batteries but would appreciate some insight before deciding.

It seems like their website is down at the moment. Anyone know what kind of batteries they use?

If they are the same as trustfires then they may "work" but they probably won't give enough current to (quickly, if at all) spin up the giant flywheels on a zeus.

Read this discussion here: https://www.reddit.c...ets_talk_about/

 

Seems like putting three IMRs in there will give your balls greater velocity, but (especially if using AA-size IMRs) you may have to slow down your rate of fire to keep that velocity up.

 

I still can't get on dormlabs website to see what all they offer, but if they have IMRs that are similar in size to an alkaline C-size battery then those would work even better. No, I'm not talking about the AA-sized ones with a c-sized "sleeve."
