Yes, you can even put them on AEGs with no fet (7.4 only) they do better with outside temp changes and they have higher amperage (better trigger response). only downside is they can be ruined if drained too low and are more dangerous if you do something stupid. I have 2 9.6 batteries I still use because they are old and refuse to die but I never purchase new ones either getting high maH/C rating 7.4s or good 11.1s (with a good mosfet).

All airsoft guns are "lipo ready"....Step 1, install lipo.  Step 2 you are done.

A Mosfet is not required to run a lipo.  With any battery type I would highly recommend replacing the Tamiya connector with a higher amp rated connector. The Tamiya connectors are only 10 amps and if your gun draws more than 10 amps the connector will get warm and can melt. I've experienced this twice and replaced my systems with deans connectors (50 amps) and never had any issues.
