They have different lengths, inner diameters, outer diameters, pitches, and are built around different systems.

A 150 spring for an AEG is built around a small fat cylinder with a usually leaky piston head, cylinder head, nozzle, bucking lips, bucking base, loose chamber, and loose barrel, giving different powers that a spring of the same characteristics with a springer.

A springer that takes VSR or APS2 springs has less leak points, the piston, cylinder head, bucking lips and body, and chamber, giving a different power reading.
Another thing to note in springers is that the piston is almost always heavier, the nozzle is almost always a larger bore, the bucking seal is almost always better, and the cylinder is a higher volume while having a smaller diameter and more length, changing energy characteristics.

One oddball is the ARES AS-0 series snipers which uses AEG springs, but that shouldn't be considered a sniper as it sucks insanely bad with it's unstable barrel and stock as well as the piss poor bolt pull.

Typically no. AEG springs are different. See my photo. The top 2 are VSR springs 13mm od, ~9mm id, 200mm length. The two on the bottom are AEG. 15mm od, ~10mm id, 170mm length. Very different springs. View attachment 19769
What brand are the VSR ones?
Never seen a brown spring before....
