So will rechargeable NiHM batteries affect Blazing Reds color?

Red is a single color LED, so the batteries shouldn't effect the color.

My Wraith v.2 has an RGB set to orange, but recently it only comes out red, even after a full charge. The only time I see orange is when it is hooked up to the charger and I turn it to the half power setting, however once I unplug it, it goes back to just red.

Could the green diode be faulty?

Could be.  Want me to take a look?

If the offer still exists in a few weeks. I have to swap monies around in order to accrue the costs that follow (shipping, etc.). Once again Ultra, you amaze me with your generosity!

This may sound like a really simple and commonly overlooked solution but it worked for me.  My brand new V.A. started to change to a bluer hue toward the end of the blade and more pink toward the hilt.  I took the emitter off and examined the MLS unit inside. (I don't know if these units are used in all sabers or only those that have quick disconnects.)  Upon close inspection i realized the back of the unit had come unscrewed just a little bit, so i got a flathead and screwed it in until it stopped.  I carefully put the unit back into the hilt making sure the wires weren't twisted and it fit comfortable with little wiggle room, put it back together, fired it up, and it was just like new again.  The color is now a beautiful violet hue from hilt to tip and i couldn't be happier.

Yes, using different batteries makes a difference, but if it doesn't work check your saber out to make sure the LED module is straight inside the hilt, otherwise the LEDs colors don't mix evenly enough to make the blade the color it's supposed to be sometimes. Worked for me.

well Ultra, I just put in the Nihm batteries and i still get a bluish color. Though on my last set, the alkaline after a week, it got to an even violet. I thought that NihM Rechargeable batteries would give it a even violet color. I am so confused.

okay.. first we have to genetecly manupilate some hamsters.. to make them ULTRA small (like an ant)
We need at least 20 of em.
Then we need to build a reactor into the Hilt.. with 20 impeler..
of course since those hamsters are so small, they don't need so much food!
Isolate the Hamsters from the electricity (they would cut the wires!!!!)
and make an place where you can insert the food!!!

Gulcasa, I can help with the genetic manipulation. So far I have miniturised a family of wild rabbits and a rhinocerous, giganticised a hill full of ants (and made them breathe fire, my house still suffers the consiquences) and made a talking lemur. (This post is a joke.)

batteries are just the root of all troubles, US needs to just come up with an infinite power source that fits in the hilt like a real saber Tongue

Smaller the creature the faster their metabolism less food in quantity but way more feedings.

Make sure they are all female. A mix will be troublesom and more then one male could mean violent fighting.

Or maybe we can attach some propellers to the hilt that turns a generator attached to the LED so the saber will light up when you swing it and won't need batteries!!  Shocked Shocked Shocked

Ok, maybe not.

Solar power, absolutly.

And for all our shadow dwellers just leave it in the sun or tyhe light of a powerful star and then go out and get it later.
