I've bought a hyperfire that was 40% off recently. I've really enjoyed it, but the thing I don't like is how it requires four D batteries. So I want a lipo/rechargeable alternative that I can integrate into the blaster. I don't necessarily need a battery that increases performance, I just need something that can be recharged and has at least the same output as four D batteries.

 

But I am not experienced in modifying electric type blasters, and have no knowledge on battery replacements. Which I why I need the help of the community. I've already considered rechargeable D batteries, but they're expensive so I'm trying to check out my options before committing to the buy.

 

So to recap, I need:

 

- Rechargeable battery.

- At least same output as four D's.

- Compatible with stock internals

 

And if you know of any modification guides that involve the battery you recommend, please link me. I would appreciate it greatly.

 

Thanks!

 

 

EDIT: Would this battery work for what I'm looking for?? https://www.amazon.c...4v lipo battery

 

EDIT2: If I bought rechargeable D cell batteries, would I notice a difference in performance if the batteries were 1.2v instead of 1.5v?

Don't buy normal rechargeable batteries. Your performance will suck. The easiest thing for you to do is but a set of Efest IMR batteries, a couple dummy batteries, and AA to D converters. Then run 2 IMR and 2 dummies. The IMR batteries are rechargeable but are 3.7V each so they'll give you a nice little boost in performance.

You could consider a 2S LiPo. It outputs an average 7.4V and should fit in the battery tray.

Great idea! I own a set of four AA trustfires, would that work for the method you're describing? 

 

EDIT: disregard that question. I've learned that the answer is NO from another thread
