Do you find that your MOSFET and cables are becoming worn or damaged due to the cramped space they sit in?
Do you find that fitting your battery is a pain, or that you have to have a teeny tiny battery to fit it in your gun?
If you answer yes to any of these questions then this Battery Extension Unit from Airtech Studios is exactly what you need.
Key Features and Benefits:
- Relieve a cramped environment for your MOSFET and cables to sit to prevent it from over bending and becoming damaged.

- Eliminates the unsteady butt-stock by locking down the two metal rails
- Maximum battery size approx 152mm long x 19.5mm wide x 11.75mm thick
- Once installed, the ARP9/556 remains just as compact as before - perfect for CQB use

Tired of having to constantly switch batteries for an all-day game, then this could be just the solution for you.
The most common issue with the G&G ARP9 is the limited battery space, which can make it difficult to operate conventional sized LiPo batteries to endure a long-lasting skirmish event. This is why Airtech Studios have created this simple yet effective battery extension unit.
Once the LiPo was installed into the stock compartment, we found it difficult to fit the MOSFET, fuse, and cables back inside without the risk of overbending (which weakens the circuit over time). Likewise, we wanted to minimize the prospect of denting the battery's surface from the cramped spacing.
By offering additional spacing inside the compartment, the Battery Extension Unit (BEU) is designed specifically to relieve all stresses on the ARP9's components, while protecting it throughout to extend its durability. There are crevices on each side of the BEU to maintain a constant flow of ventilation to the battery and components to prevent a build-up of heat.
The BEU is designed to fit beautifully with the ARP9's original design by sitting seamlessly inside the stock compartment with no modification needed to install. Made of strong, flexible nylon that is resistant to BB impact and rough handling.

To buy an airsoft weapon in the UK you must have a valid airsoft defence.
This is not a licence, it is basically just proof that you intend to buy an airsoft weapon for use in airsoft.
An airsoft defence could be a UKARA or membership with the British Airsoft Club, and various other forms of defence.
You can only obtain an airsoft defence once you are over the age of 18.
To get an airsoft defence the law is that you should play at least 3 games of airsoft, and that you must have been playing for at least two months.
You can still buy an airsoft gun without a defence, provided you are 18 or older. If you choose to do this we would, by law, two tone (paint in a bright colour) parts of your chosen weapon. This is because an airsoft gun is considered a RIF aka Realistic Imitation Firearm, because they are so close to the real steel, whereas when you paint parts of it in a bright colour it becomes an IF aka Imitation Firearm. The reason being that the bright colours make it look less realistic to the public, and therefor less likely to be mistaken as real, were it to be used for any other purpose than airsoft.
When you order a gun from us you will need to add your defence details in the comments section of the cart. If you do not have a defence you will need to write the colour that you wish to be used for two toning your airsoft weapon.
Here is what's stated in the VCRA (Violent Crime Reduction) Act:
For airsoft skirmishing, the Association of British Airsoft is putting in place arrangements to allow retailers to check that individual purchasers are members of a genuine skirmishing club or site. The key elements of these arrangements are:
1. new players must play at least 3 (three) times in a period of not less than two months before being offered membership
2. membership cards with a photograph and recognised format will be issued for production to retailers
3. A central database will be set up for retailers to cross-check a purchaser’s details
4. member’s entry on the database will be deleted if unused for 12 months.
The defence for airsoft skirmishing can apply to individual players because their purchase of realistic imitation firearms for this purpose is considered part of the “holding” of a skirmishing event.
