    Default Laser Designator Batteries question

    The Lazer Generator runs on two 3V batteries. If I use two reachable batteries that are 3.7V each could something burn out? If I am correct there would nou be a total voltage of 7.4V instead of 6V.

    I can't find 3 volt rechargeable batteries an I am to scared to try the two 3.7 volt ones. Would the ekstra 1.7 volt be to much?

    And maybe mantech


    they usually stock a lot of cool stuff to play and build with.

    good luck

    Thanks Bertus I used your link and already found the right battery on that site you suggested.

    Would still want to know if the 3.7 volt would work. I don't think it is worth the risk.

    Usually, more amps than required are okay..thebatteries will last longer. but more volts, will certainly fry something.

    This depends on the bard and its components and whether it can "handle" the higher voltage. Usually not.
    Id stay within the designed parameters regarding the voltage.

    Glad you got sorted.

    Got it from pellet gun. Definitely not the BSA original even though on their website it is stated as the BSA.
    Mine is the ND3x40 and I am happy with it so far it works really well.



    Let me rather say I don't think it's the original.

    Then no, I would not risk RC123 @ 3.7v in that device.
