Product Information:
I'm pretty impressed - I know the price is a little high, but I'm happy with it.

The cord is about 10 inches long. Judge for yourself if that's long enough. I bought this as a cool way to have a back-up battery.

THIS CAN BE OPENED. You have to slide off the back where the seam is. It is not screwed/bolted together, but the fit is VERY tight that you really have to work it off. That exposes a plastic enclosure for the battery that you then slide out as well after you unscrew the center front cap - this fit is even tighter in the box. Again, the fit is tight enough that I checked for screws holding it together, but you just have to work it off - so it's built and held together well without the aid (and hassle) of screws.

Pros:
- This is metal. It feels VERY solid. If you have a polymer AEG, this will probably feel stronger than it.
- Comes with a top rail
- Quick mounting mechanism; clamp style with the cross bolt sitting inbetween a rail. Bolt is long, so it does NOT fall out easily or by accident.

Cons:
- The fake switches in the back are just tacked on - they can fall off easily. I imagine people losing these easily, and it exposes the clear arylic battery casing.
- The top rail seems to be machined out of spec on mine - it is too wide to fit anything. Will have to sand down the edges if I decide to use it but....(see below)
- This is NOT low profile in the slightest. Because of it's mount design (which I liked above), it sights somewhat high. Because of this, putting anything on the top rail seems silly - it would just protrude out even further.
- Since it's metal, it has weight to it. It's not heavy, but you'll notice it when you add it to the gun.

This is an update to my previous review

I hate this PEQ. I personally think its a waste of money. The battery does not work with a smart charger and the battery looses power very, very quickly. I took it apart and extracted the battery yesterday it it looks like crap. The only thing on the PEQ that is actually metal is the rail, wich is pretty cool I guess. The mount for the PEQ is also messed up, its crooked and loose. Overall, I think it is low ok/bad.

Pros:
Some parts are metal
It looks pretty cool

Cons:
Everything listed above, im too lazy to write out the cons again :P

Product Information:
Very good PEQ box. I would prefer it over a plastic batter box any day. Echo 1 is more of an intermediate or beginner brand but this PEQ is perfect for experienced players and newbies alike. Although I did have some problems charging it. Not sure if thats my fault or not, though.

Pros:
Full Metal
Cool trades
Has a rail on top for a flashlight or something. Maybe even an optic if you mout it on the top section of your RIS.
Good ROF with my KWA MOD 1 CQR
Long connector so you can mount it anywhere on the RIS and you dont have to worry if the wire is long enough to connect.
VERY easy to install but it is a bit wobbly if not tightened all the way.



Cons:
The metal is a bit cheap but much better than a plastic battery case.
A bit wobbly if not tightened all the way
I had trouble charging it the first time I used it (And the only time lol) but I think that may be something with my smart charger. Basically It would say is was charged but when I took it off the charger and used it with my gun the ROF was slow and you could tell the battery was low. I put it back on the charger and said it was charging. A few minuets later it said it was charged. I noticed a pattern. I took it off the charger and immediately re-connected it. It said it was charging again. I continued the process for about 2 hours until it was charged fully. Not sure if it was the battery, the outlet, or the charger but I thought I would include that incident in the review

Product Information:
this battery is kickass. i mean you could use a PEQ, but why when it is made out of brittle plastic, plus it is very inconvenient and time consuming when you need to change out the battery (espically when you are in the middle of some scrimmage or something like that). just buy one of these babies (maybe two like i did). FYI, i was told at the walk in store that it is 1400 nimh, but it could be 2000nimh.

Pros:
strong casing for the battery

don't need a hex wrench to put it on like a PEQ

easy to change out for another one if the situation calls for it

great if you have a folding stock or a crane stock that doesn't allow you to have a large battery in the stock



Cons:
price, found it for 60 somewhere else, but i needed the battery and the other site wasn't going to have them in stock any time soon

other than that, no compaints here

This is the first thing I bought for my Echo 1 MP5 A5 RIS because on the MP5 RIS A5 it is literally impossible to get the battery into the handgrip and then get the hand grip onto the rail. this basically BUY THIS FOR THE ECHO 1 MP5 A5 RIS!

This battery box is solid and well detailed! The battery seems to be a high quality unit and the ROF is great! It is a 9.6v 2000mAh battery. I have not had it long enough to see how long the charge lasts but I have high expectations now that I have fired a few hundred rounds with no detectable decrease in power. The removable rubber covers over the fake laser apertures are a nice touch and the rail on top is made of metal. I love the attachment screw on the rail mount...the way it is designed ensures that the screw will not be stripped no matter how many times you remove/remount the unit. The unit also comes with more than enough stickers to decorate the box with the appropriate laser warnings etc. The only two downsides I see so far are 1) that the labels on the upper rear part of the unit stating "IR/Visible...etc" are labeled backwards (away from the actual selecting dials on the back of the unit). 2) the fake selecting knobs on the back could be lost if they are not secured by some glue.
