I formed my opinion on girls and fx sabers when i showed my sister my new Anakin ROTS, when i told her how much it cost she fell about laughing and called me a geek lol. ;D ;D
Luke ROTJ FX Lightsaber: £89.99
Star Wars OT Boxset: £29.99
Fighting for the Light Side: Priceless
(Borrowed(Stole) this idea from Dark Skywalker)

After being saddened by my blotchy blade from using NiMH batteries I went and got me some New Energizers and slapped em in my Luke ESB that I got yesterday and BLAMMO...no blotchiness!

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 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.

(I like this site a lot  ;) )

Hello There

It would appear this is aimed in my direction since I've mentioned ENERGIZER e TITANIUM batteries in
other threads as well as the Duracell MAX.

So let's clear things up shall we...

First- There is no such thing as a Titanium based battery, It is simply the "name" of Energizers Longest life
         battery just like the Duracell Ultra or MAX.

Second- I've also discussed the point of rechargeable batteries having "only 1.2volts" compared to the
             " Alkaline batteries having 1.5volts".
               And I have already stated else where the rechargeables are not meant for use the FX Sabers
               just as the manual points out.

Third- The comment about anybody reading the manual? Well I hope others do read it as well.
          Of course I've read it, and fully endorse it.
          Not only do I read manuals but I've written them for companies as well, and mostly
          for the products I've designed.

          Please understand I fully agree with you about Lithium,NIMH and even NICAD.

          Most rechargeable batteries perform at sub standard levels unless they are properly
          cared for which means they need to be condtioned to maintain there charge levels
          by cycling them (charge and discharge over and over before using in a device).
          
          And by the way lithiums have worked well in phones or other low drain devices,but in high
          drain devices they most certainly have caused problems, even exploding.

          I just want to make sure were all on the same page here when It comes to batteries
          and other electrical advise about these FX products.

          So we all agree that the we shold buy only the best most powerful Alkalines for our FXs in
          order to assure proper and fun operation. ;D

always

Meridian, I stand corrected. You are right, those batteries are definitely alkaline. But, it DOES use a titanium compound; it's not just simply a codename. :)

Hello there

That's wonderful to hear, and glad to have you on the boards.
Perhaps the other female Sith and Jedi will reveal them selves as well.
Or mabey they like the shroud of the unknown?

Lest we all not forget  Gentlemen...
Anakin would never have become Darth Vader if
it wasn't for His love of Padme.

So your saying women are the path to the dark side? ;)


I am using Rechargeable batteries, now I know I shouldn't, I will have to pick up some Alkaline batteries tommorow, I have a lot of people to impress with my saber at my 18th birthday party, so it will need to be in top condition!
