Don`t skimp on batterys!!
« on: July 09, 2005, 12:06:27 AM »
Man I just changed my battery's in my Anakin for the 1st time (had for 2 weeks)
OMG i forgot how bright it actually was..

Then I looked at my Mace and thought,dam I used cheap battery's in my Mace I wonder how much better it will look with energizer's....Well end of story it looks SOOOOOOOOOO much brighter with new energizers!! WAY BETTER!

I was a cheap b****** and 1st and got generic batters for the Mace (do not do this,you sell yourself short)
Well I'm going to have to film another video now,the week battery's did not do the force fx justice in the one I upped today.

Thanks to Meridian for this excellent pic and example!!

YES YES YES the mace windu definately benefits from Fresh BATTERIES.
I have one that is going to be a suprise for my son.
But I opened it to test it and first I put in some substandard batteries and it made the
blade all spotted looking but once I put in the heavy Duty DURACELL MAX It Lit up perfectly.
Very nice with new batteries. I bet all the 6cell blades are sensitive like that.
always

Just an FYI, for those of you who think you may get even brighter luminosity if you get the ultra special Energizer titanium or lithium batteries, I would suggest you DON'T use them.

Master Replicas is specific about what kind of battery you are supposed to use with the Force FX: only akaline batteries. If you don't use akaline, you run the risk of damaging your Force FX, or severely shortening its lifespan.

First time posting. Ordered myself a Darth Vader ESB FX saber... now, bout the batteries. I'll just have to say CR*P cause I bought Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries from Energizer for the Saber. Will those types of batteries spoil the saber like titanium or lithium batteries?

(I like this site a lot  ;) )

I wonder if anybody ever reads the instruction manual that came with their FX sabers. :) It tells the owner what kind of batteries the saber should take.

MR recommends non-rechargeable akaline batteries, like Duracell, Duracell Ultra, and Energizer Max. MR doesn't specifically recommend those brands, I only mentioned them because they are so well known and it's common knowledge that they are the best on the market.

and the 8th day God said "Let the Master Replicas produce Ligtsabers FX"
God saw that it was good.

Going Duracell or Energizer is tantamount to choosing Pepsi or Coke. Just go with whichever you prefer, but I don't suggest drinking battery acid.  :D

I can confirm that good batteries can make all the difference. I had inferior batteries in my Vader ESB i switched them for Duracell Plus last night and i couldn't believe the difference, doubly bright and loud. I was impressed by it with the bad batteries in it now I'm ecstatic. Moral of the story buy the best alkalies you can find its a small price to pay for the increased performance.
