In the Star Wars Universe, the Force powers light sabers. But here in the mundane world far far away, you need a less mystical power source for the accessories you use with your Star Wars costumes. Your child's Anakin Skywalker costume will be ultra-cool with a light saber, unless the light saber doesn't light up. Your Darth Vader costume won't be as fearsome if your light saber suddenly runs out of power. The batteries aren't included with the Episode III light sabers. Three “AAA” batteries power your light saber. May the Force of Duracell be with you!
