Well he had many MRs. but I think hes only got 2 mauls and an obi left. Never had a problem with mixed batteries. Even back in the day when my led was driven by the mr board i had many different mixed types ran thru it and not a problem.

i left some C cell batteries in my POFT2 millenium falcon about 2 years ago. i forgot about the electronic features until last week while hanging it from the ceiling with fishing line. "oh yeah i forgot it makes sounds and stuff!" i pressed a button, curious if it would even still work due to the fact its been so long with the same batteries in there and possible acid leakage...

*WOOOOSHHHHHHH!*

like a champ!
i really should open it up and throw those away while it still works though.

I know all to well from leaving batteries in my higer powered laser pens before, I'd rather not kill my sabers in such a manner, I do have a question though...

I have 2x Li Ion rechargable batteries which deliver a decent 3.7v each @ 350Mah, could I wire one of the three battery slots pos to neg, and fill the other two slots with these batteries creating 6-7v @ 350Mah for the saber. would that fry it, I'd really like to know the circuitry limits and requirements before trying it out, I already read above that mixing batteries is a bad idea so ill avoid that at any cost! but if my idea works then i think its easier for me and less costly too!

Thanks for the advice, I had no idea that simply mixing batteries could give a FX problems, I wonder if that is what happened to my maul???  It's sound output was messing up for a while, and then the LED's would flash on and off randomly, thanks very much for the advice.
