One of WORST things you can do to a Fx lightsaber
« on: January 27, 2007, 10:40:47 PM »
Here is a tip to help your Force Fx last forever..

NEVER use mixed battery's under ANY circomstance..
NO energizer with Duracell's and so on..All of the same or nothing.

This is how Leds break and power up and down effects mess up,and sounds get messed up..

Almost everyone who has have Force Fx problems that didn`t duel with um have that one thing in common..
They mixed different brands of batterys..

So never mix battery's,live by this rule.

Hmm.. you mean that the longer it takes, the saber gradually gets worst?

Don't ever try doing a conversion for the first time unless you have instructions that comes with the kit or if your looking at a step by step process online. I regret this with my Anakin ROTS since it was and still is my first fx.

By the way another worst thing you can do with your FX sabers is leaving the batteries in the saber if it's not in use for a long period of time.

This story is related to what I just said... but I had one of those Hasbro electronic lightsabers that you could make your own custom of... well it had been months since I had used it and it still had the batteries in it.  Well this past weekend when I went to go use it it made this really weird noise when it turned on.  I took out the batteries and the freaking batteries had leaked got battery acid all inside the lightsaber and basically fried it. 

So again don't leave your batteries in your FX sabers if you don't plan on playing with them for a long period of time.  There's the potential risk for the batteries to leak acid and ruin your lightsabers.

Also, NEVER clean your blade with a wierd substance.  Water and Plastic polish only.  I used "Goof off" on my Vader ESB, now maybe 3 days after every new set of batteries, the blade and sounds flicker and die.  So i only put my batteries in my vader when im using it.  Dont make this mistake
