  • Typhoon Airsoft recommends using your Airsoft Gun in a Airsoft field or arena only.
  • Certain entry-level AEG’s will include a free wall charger and a battery pack when purchased. This is just to use it out of the box; Typhoon Airsoft recommends upgrading your battery and charging it with a smart charger.
  • Typhoon Airsoft recommends a minimum of 8.4v NiMH battery pack or a 7.4V Li-Po battery for all AEG rifles.
  • ROF (Rate Of Fire) and overall performance have a direct relationship with the power and capacity of the battery.
  • Smart Chargers are highly recommended as they will make the battery last longer and can provide a solution to charge all types of batteries. They do not require monitoring time, as the auto cut-off feature will disengage the charger when the battery pack has been fully charged.
  • Wall chargers won’t usually tell when the battery is fully charged, or they do inconsistently. Wall chargers do not stop charging the battery when is full, therefore require the user to precisely monitor time in order to correctly charge the battery pack to its fullest capacity.
  • When using a Wall Charger, do not use it for more than 4-5 hours continuously.
  • Li-Po specific chargers will not charge a NiMH battery, and vice versa.
  • A more powerful battery pack is required for airsoft guns with higher FPS. Avoid using a high-powered battery pack for a low powered airsoft gun, as this may cause damage to your airsoft gun and void your warranty.
  • Do not fully discharge your battery. Please unplug as soon as you notice a decrease of power and performance on your airsoft gun.
  • Please do not hit or pierce your battery pack; do not modify the structure or connectors on your battery pack. If the battery presents any deformation or damage please do not use and discard appropriately.
  • Battery packs should be transported in a Battery Bag to avoid risks and prevent damage to your airsoft equipment.
  • All AEG's come without battery or charger, unless stated otherwise in the product page. Please note that this are required for operating your AEG.
  • Keep your battery unplugged when not using your AEG. Leaving the battery plugged for longer periods creates unnecessary wear and can damage the battery capacity.
  • Typhoon Airsoft recommends firing your gun a couple of times in semi-auto mode before storing it, this way the gearbox will perform a full cycle and the spring will be left uncompressed.
  • AEG guns can be damaged by the use of poor quality bb’s. If your AEG is jammed with an out-of-shape bb, please stop shooting immediately and clear the jam. USE GOOD QUALITY BB’s ONLY
  • Typhoon Airsoft recommends a 7.4v-9.6v battery pack for most AEG’s. Please use the right battery for your gun. Never use a Li-Po with a discharge rate superior to 20C.
  • Although AEG’s require little maintenance, you should keep it clean and lubed. Typhoon Airsoft recommends servicing your AEG after some use.
  • Keep your magazine feed channels clean, in order to not carry dust or dirt into your AEG.
  • Do not fire in full-auto mode for longer periods, as that would accelerate wear and tear of internal parts. Please fire short bursts when using full-auto mode on your AEG.
  • Never store a Gas Magazine empty, please fill to a medium capacity before storing the gun.
  • Typhoon Airsoft recommends firing all GBB guns in semi-auto mode; shooting in full-auto mode will freeze the o-rings and valves inside the gun and magazine, and may cause damage to those components.
  • GBB guns can be damaged by the use of poor quality bb’s. If your GBB is jammed with an out-of-shape bb, please stop shooting immediately and clear the jam. USE GOOD QUALITY BB’s ONLY
  • Typhoon Airsoft recommends using the CO2 magazines until empty before storage. CO2 pressure is too high for the CO2 magazines to hold it for extended periods of time.
  • GBB guns require a high maintenance pace, you should always keep it clean and lubed. Typhoon Airsoft recommends servicing your GBB after 3000-5000 shots, and always look for wear and tear on moving parts.
  • In order to properly load your GBB magazine, remove from the gun, fill valve facing up, fill with gas for 4-5 seconds or until sound changes and gas starts spilling. Is recommended to re-fill your magazine with gas every time you re-load it with BB’s.
  • Basic Troubleshooting: If your trigger moves but the gun doesn’t fire, usually means that the bolt is locked to the rear position. If your trigger doesn’t move at all, usually means that the safety is engaged.
  • Please avoid using your GBB in cold weather conditions. Gas reliability is dependant on temperature and humidity.
  • Always point your Airsoft Gun in a safe direction, away from humans, animals, screens, windows, etc. even when unloaded or without battery.
    Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot, and please use the safety switch/button on your Airsoft Gun at all times.
