There are a lot of questions about how to do an electrical or battery modification to a flywheel blaster, such as the Rapidstrike. This brief write up will explain one way to use a rechargeable battery pack without modifying the major portions of the blaster. All that's modified is the Rapidstrike's battery tray.
Advantages of this mod: very easy to do, assuming you have soldering and R/C experience, yet will give a substantial increase in performance (ROF and FPS). You do not need to open the blaster itself.
Disadvantages of this mod: not the most efficient (electrically speaking), requires soldering skills and necessitates the user to acquire a rechargeable batter pack (LiPo, Li-Ion, NiCd or NiMH).
The following pictures show a side-by-side 6 cell battery pack using 2,000mah Eneloop AA batteries and a Deans Micro Connector.
This is such a simple mod and I know many of you have either seen it or done it yourself. However, for some of the newbies out there, these pictures should hopefully explain the basic idea of one type of battery mod.
The pictures explain it all:
