Product information page

  • TRUE 15C Battery!!!
  • Not China-made RC LIPO batteries!!!
  • MODEL# 07 [11.1V, 1000mAh, 15C][Stock-Fit Version]
  • Special designed for M4/ AR buttstock


Quote from Airsoft Soldier professional review:
"The results: Looking at the difference between RC and airsoft manufacturers’ batteries, the results were favourable to the airsoft batteries in the S3 class. Especially the Socom Gear S3 1500 mAh 15C solid pack exceeded all expectations and achieved the best result in the power test."

"The tests showed that the traditionally shaped Socom Gear batteries proved to be very effective and powerful batteries."

"C-ratings could only be measured for S3 batteries because of equipment restrictions. Socom Gear’s products gave as much as the pack promised, but the RC batteries were a bit short of their objective."

Minor repairs 30/04/10 0000-0400 GMT

We had a few hours planned downtime last night whilst the main server was taken offline to have a logic board replaced.

The work has been completed and that should (fingers crossed) cure the minor niggles that we’ve had since the move of irregular loading. It appears that the secondary SATA controller was duff and causing backup routine issues.

With only 4 parts to this revolutionary grenade, all the user has to do is replace the percussion cap and the cracker unit and it is ready to be used again. A T5 derivative is already in use with the police and military and will be available soon to airsofters. (TLSFx)
