So your saying that major conflicts like the world wars started over a girl. So Hitler stole Chamberlain's (British prime minister at the outbreak of WW2) bird and he said hey you outside now and thus began the bloodiest conflict in the history of man. I dont think so somehow.

Dang, you guys got busy while I was away! I come back and there is all sorts of new stuff.
Thanx for the info on the batteries, I wasn't sure about mine or if I should look around the house for some. I guess I will go for some Energizers since they sell some at the store I work at.

Also, "Heavy Duty" batteries are crap. They drain right away and quickly become useless. It may seem like a good deal when you're comparing prices with alkaline batteries, but it's really just a waste of money.

Hello There

A 36 pack you say? How much? :o
That's great, Did you get the ultra or max type?
in anycase a 36 pack probably saves you at least $10.00 total in the long run.
Good find Darth.
What type of saber did you say you had on order?
If it is a newer 3 battery type then those batteries should last you a good long
while. ;)

The Final Word On Batteries

Hello everyone
I just emailed Bigdog a picture to post in this forum.
It will show you how the blade of a Mace Windu looks
with Bad Batteries v/s Good Batteries.
That way everyone can get a real visual on the difference,
once they are loaded up.

(Images are on my personal Harddrive not a server and
need to be manually uploaded or I would have done it my self
but don't worry BD will get to it quickly I'm sure)

A great deal for sure, as long as they are new they should do well.

Hello everyone

Thanks for the assistance with the Image Illbeats!

As you can all see the difference between a saber using
good or bad batteries can make a big difference in performance.

The Windu Blade was the best example of this for pictures.
