Battery charge time for MP5 electric

Hi all,

Bullets here popping over from the shooting board looking
for a bit of help. I know nothing at all about Airsoft sports.

Got a H&K MP5 electric BB fireing replica airsoft/BB gun today in Cork.
Purely because it looked cool and I love all things gun related including
replicas or non-firearms that look like the real thing.
Yer man in the shop said it was under one Joule so I am guessing
I wont have any trouble Legal wise.

The manual is very badly written and does not mention anything at all
about charging the battery pack that comes with the gun.

The Manual mentioned Ni-Cad but the battery pack itself
is Ni-MH 7x2 3A31100 Mah 8.4 volts.
The charger plugs directly into the battery pack and does not
have any lights or any indication to let you know when the pack is
charged. This is worrying and its one of those cheap made in China jobs
and dont want to leave it un-attended in case it goes on fire etc.

Does anyone Know how long I should charge the pack for ?

I'm not an airsofter as I have my own real rifle and enjoy casual target
shooting but I was in Cork today and wandered into the Mmmmmad shop
where I saw a stunning array of BB/airsoft??? guns that looked well impressive. I was drooling as these looked like replicas and looked like the real thing from a distance. Metal Replicas are 3-400 but these were all
under 200 Euros which was great.

I bought a glock look alike which is pretty crap and
is only for decoration and an electric H&K MP5
Just because they looked nice and also I had got the bus down to cork
from limerick and could not carry anything bigger.
I would love to get an FN-FAL replica or BB fireing one.

After fireing it on full auto a while ago and its FANTASTIC "fun" !!
something you can let loose with without having to worry
about the serious-ness of fireing real live rounds.
I now want to buy MORE than one.

cant say you'll get many pleasant comments about mmmad to be honest, they're not well liked around here, not exactly the kind of retailer we like selling airsoft stuff... but that's a topic for another day. the mp5 you got is most likely a cyma mp5... not a bad little aeg (have one myself), but unfortunately mmmad's prices are a bit ott...

however, to figure out the battery charge time, you need the mah rating from the battery (1100 for the one that comes with cyma mp5 i think) and the mah from the charger (again approx 100mah from what i remember), there's a nice little equation that works it out, but i cant remember off the top of my head, you can use the calculator program here to work it out for you though

Edit: just lookin at this page it appears to be [battery mah]/[charger mah] + 20%, so 1100/100 = 11 + (11*0.2) = 13.2 hours
the 20% allows for energy loss/inefficiency and can vary depending on charger/battery etc..

Edit Again: also, welcome to the forum, if you love the mp5 that much already, you should come along to a skirmish and try it out, great craic all together

Without knowing anything about your charger the best advice I could give would be to wait until you are going to be in the house all day then plug it in in the morning and let it do its magic. Check on it every once in a while to make sure its not running hot and if it is obviously unplug it. That said if you are going to be buying more AEGs it would probably be in your best interest to invest in a good smart charger and some extra batteries as the ones that are shipped with clones tend not to be the best. (MMMMAD are selling clones right?)

Blooming KDouglas I'll just bet he camps out at spawn points too

yup, the mp5 i saw on their website is the same as the clone mp5 i have, cyma cm027

Edit: actually, now that i look, they have the cm023 and cm027, cm023 is rubbish in comparison to most decent clones, cm027 is known as a fairly good clone, on a similar level to the cyma ak47 (cm028 i think??)

Thanks guys,

Thats great info,
I must say its got me pretty interested.
A bit plastic for my tastes but almost realistic I reckon
some of those Airsoft stuff is a happy inbetween for those
who likes the Looks of guns and the cheapness of being able to
afford somthing that looks like the real thing.

I love the sound of the motor going and fireing out those little plastic
beads.

Methinks you just need to see some higher end guns and not clones

You are well quick with the replies, it just reminded me of spawn campers, those guys you meet in FPS games online who hang around by regen spots and off people as soon as they appear. I just pictured you sitting infront of your PC hammering away at the F5 key waiting to swoop in on a new post

Sweet almost perfect for me. If I could just get a flash eliminator that
is the exact same as my days in the FCA I would be happy.
would prefer to be able to go someplace and buy one though
rather than have to try buy one online and have to hope and pray
that customs dont stop it from coming through the post.

I was actually going to try in the future of picking myself up a fully
working FAL converted to 22LR and legallay being able to fire it
in Ireland but thats a long way off yet.

Customs aren't going to seize it. It's perfectly legal. The only problem With importing is the 21% vat you might have to pay. But you'd still get your gun though!
