You don't need a mosfet to run lipos.

Your A&K is lipo ready without that.

Slapping a JG Enhanced MOSFET wiring harness into a gun doesn't make it LiPO-ready.

Running Lipo efficiently means lots of things, wiring is just one, you also need decent gears that wont break on you since you will be giving them added stress in higher rps. You also need to shim / lube those gears properly as lipo is far less forgiving with mistakes in alignment and lubrication.

You also have to understand how lipo batteries work, especially if you remove the fuse in your gun, and not press the trigger over and over after your gears have jammed or some other gun failure.

I only use semi auto so i just want the lipo to make the trigger response time quicker and the mosfet to stop it from locking up.

I ran an 11.1v 25c 2000mah battery in my stock JG with nothing but a reshim and lubrication. It gave great trigger response after the reshim. I almost exclusively used semi auto, so unless you have some form of a lemon, you should see similar (good) results.

Lipos are not crazy, they just require a good charger and basic knowledge of batteries.

To run a lipo safely (no possibility of burning out trigger contacts) you need a MOSFET period any other way you run the risk of burning them out (not to say that it will happen instantly but eventually it will unless your running a super small lipo) but also to be "lipo ready" you should fix the AOE and as said a good shim job and ditch the ****ty connectors that come stock and put on deans, xt60, or bullet connectors .

Yeah, I ran a lipo for about 6 months until it corroded my trigger contacts beyond repair.

I run a 7.4 and an 11.1 lipo. The advantage of a lipo is that they provide higher amps, C rate. The first thing I noticed was how hot my stock wiring got. Depending on yours, you may want the upgrade it too. 14# made the motor get stuck in my handle so I went with 16# cello wire I found had homedepot. It's pretty flexible.
