I doubt a small 8.4 will fit. Maybe the nunchuck will?
The do make a cranestock style battery though. Get with Flux, he bought a couple custom cranestock batteries a while back for a pretty good price. Good luck

Yes, there is a specific battery for the crane stock. And because it is specific to that stock, they tend to charge a little more for them. You can find cheaper crane stock batteries on ebay, for example, but buyer beware. They will work fine and last a long time, that isn't an issue. But, many guns have slightly smaller tubes in the crane stock and wont take some of the larger crane batteries.

For this reason, I tend to stick to full stock guns. They will hold most any battery, and you can get great deals on 7.4 Lipo batteries that will fit. Those same 7.4 lipo batteries will also fin in most guns that are front wired and hold the battery in the fore grip. Some people even like the PEQ box, and while I am not particularly a fan, I would probably take a PEQ over a crane stock.

Thanks for the info! I do like the idea of a full stock - as I've yet to collapse my stock from the extended position-- Full stock may be the way to go!

I would hold the full stock guns at the field to see how you like them. The full stock is probably not as long as the fully extended collapsable.

Crane stock batteries are, of course, specifically made for crane stocks. They also come in different cell sizes depending on what you need. Cell sizes like AA, Sub-C. I have 3 different crane-stocks and each one takes a different size battery, because of the wire length and length of the stock itself.

A Intellect 9.6, cell size AA, 8 cell, 2000mAh, will fit the majority of crane stocks.

The smaller batteries will generally fit into the larger diameter crane stock.

I love the crane stock's because they do collapse smaller than the full size stock and are much more comfortable to me. I don't like that when the battery dies or goes bad on the field, you either need to have a whole other stock already set up with a battery, or a battery pouch with a battery ready to go. Changing a crane stock battery on the field is not practical.

Also the crane stock batteries tend to cost more than your standard batteries with no real overall life expectancy gains.

They do sell lipo crane stock batteries but they will cost even more.
