What's the deal with Lithiums....according to the manual MR says to only use alkaline, but I read so many fx owners who use them.-I'm confused. :(

I only use Energizer Lithiums and love em.  They last so long.

Any possibility of the lithiums damaging the electronics of the saber?

Thanks Cin thanks for the info. :) I switched out to Energizer max in my Obi-Wan stock to do a side by side with my new Obi Ultrsaber using the same batteries. The Ultrasaber is still brighter than the stock, but my stock Obi is the brightest it's ever been! :) Oh btw, the only Dracell Ultras I can find say digital on them, are these good for a saber?

Are the blue batts with gold writing? If so, those are the PowerPix and are great.

JKL, Lithiums are not hazardous in my experience. They are great, just expensive. I find that the Maul FFX drains any battery, even when not on. I always remove them after I use the Maul FFX. They last longer. But this is the only batt issue I have had.

Your're not lazy Cin, just ....mindful of your energy expendature. :D  As for which saber, first and formost my new Obi-Wan Ultrasaber ;D ;D, that's going to be my primary saber I think. Although my Luke ROTJ could use a boost. I probably won't want to dump the money on putting lithiums into my entire collection, but maybe those two and my stock Obi-Wan. :)

From what I have read, the Ultra is good even with regular batts. The Lithiums in the stock Obi-Wan is REALLY bright! I strongly caution you to not ignite that in the dark. It may cause more temporary blindness than being frozen in carbonite.
