I have batteries in my sabers as well, but I'll be removing them. If you use one daily, is it okay to leave the batteries in all the time?

Dropping it on the grass where your dog does its business while doing saber twirls...

batteries will break open and leak acid when they are 'beyond dead' (so to speak).

a sure fire way to make this happen, is to mix 'new' batteries with 'old' ones. (mix 'strong' batteries with 'weak' ones)

for example if you mix two batteries, lets say: one half dead and one brand new,
the oldest/weakest one will of course "die" before the newer one.

but the overall circuit will still provide current as long as the "strong" one still has some life in it. 
and this will cause the older ("weak") battery to crack open and leak.  every time.

it can even happen over time, if you just leave the saber for a few months and don't play with it.
eventually the batteries will discharge on their own, the weak ones before the strong ones,
and the one(s) that discharges first (while the others still have a bit of charge) will crack open.  every time.

(generally this doesnt usually happen if the batteries are all the same brand, all installed at the same time,
and all with the same amount of charge left in them when they finally "die")




--->   I would take Kit's warning one step further and say, you should never mix&match batteries in ANY device.   :-\

And do you know the irony of it? I was at the garden showing my sisters how to handle a saber with care... and I dropped it. It just spun out of my hand and onto the grass.. my poor anakin ROTS. It was embarassing...

I got my very first FX saber (Anakin ROTS) & I always take care of it & I'm very careful with it, even while twirling it. I mean I can't afford to break it & fix it nor get it upgraded (with a better blade that's stronger & you hit it hard & it won't hurt it).

How long do you think the battery life will last in brand new batteries?

I dunno. Probably depends on the batteries themselves. ???

Don't "lend" one of your favourite sabers to your 15 year old testosterone-on-overdrive cousin to duel with you and say "now come at me!"...mine seemed to be reinventing Vaapad in front of my eyes...geez I dont remember EVER being that aggressive lol...

Fortunately the dark spots on the blade were only temporary and fixed themselves somehow...

The Force was with my FX lol
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

I've got one....

NEVER EVER mount your darth maul in double bladed mode and a  a wall at any distance off the ground greater than 1 meter UNLESS you are ABSOLUTELY sure that the hooks won't fall out and result in the stand giving way.

Mine did and i was elsewhere when my mum messaged me telling me that that "Really long lightsaber" fell off. i was horrified. fortunately this isn't some cheap lightsabers....took me twice (YES THE STAND DISMOUNTED AGAIN!!!) to learn not to do that.....i now mount my darth maul halves seperately.
