Does anyone know what lightsaber vendor has the longest lasting batteries?
My current lightsaber only lasts for about an hour when constantly lit up.
It would be nice to find a lightsaber that doesn't need recharging after only an hour.

My Kyberlight saber holds a charge for a good amount of time.
Their claim is that the charge will last 4 hours if left on continuously and 8 hours if used intermittently.
I used my Kyberlight at Celebration. On and off all day from 9 AM till 6 PM without any charging issues what so ever.

Battery life depends on a few things, # of LEDs, color of LEDs, sound card, battery voltage, battery capacity, resistance/LED driver.

Swappable 3.7V Li-Ion batteries might be your best bet for all day use.

What type of lightsaber do you have?
Brand, style, blade colors, how long you have had the saber etc.
Is it rechargeable or do you need to use batteries?

Orbtronics, Panasonic, KeepPower 18650 are high quality stuff also you can check Solo's Hold homepage for some awesome stuff in accesories. Do you use a tricree or a quadcree LED? What soundboard etc. these all effect runtime. I have a single luxeon rebel led and a 18650 battery and it runs for a very long time (stunt saber no sound atm.)
